G. Edward Griffin (born November 7, 1931) is an American author, lecturer, and filmmaker. He is the author of “World Without Cancer” where he argues that cancer is a nutritional deficiency that can be cured by consuming amygdalin.
In 1974, Griffin wrote and self-published the book “World Without Cancer” and released it as a video; its second edition appeared in 1997. In the book and the video, Griffin asserts that cancer is a metabolic disease like a vitamin deficiency facilitated by the insufficient dietary consumption of laetrile. He contends that “eliminating cancer through a nondrug therapy has not been accepted because of the hidden economic and power agendas of those who dominate the medical establishment” and he wrote, “at the very top of the world’s economic and political pyramid of power there is a grouping of financial, political, and industrial interests that, by the very nature of their goals, are the natural enemies of the nutritional approaches to health”.
