Preparation of Cassava Plant
The cassava plant needs to be well cooked prior consumption as it contains a certain percentage of cyanide that must be removed.

Once they have become properly soaked, keep them in the fridge for a couple of hours. Do not throw away the liquid in which the cassava pieces have been soaked but use it with another beverage, like water or juice. Consume this solution prior breakfast.
Cassava Plant is an Effective Cancer Killer
This plant contains potent anti-cancer properties due to the rich presence of vitamin B17. Having known this fact, Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya, an ear, nose and throat surgeon, made a thorough research on foods with rich content of vitamin B17 as she also suffered from transitional cell cancer. She had this disease for nearly 10 years in which period she tried all sorts of methods. Eventually, she decided to turn to the use of natural treatments after she found out about the amazing anti-cancer properties of cassava online.
Dr. Jayasuriya realized that cassava plant is a rich source of vitamin B17, and because of that she started to consume it for one month. In total, she was taking 100 gr. of cassava 3 times a day. The routine was: boiled cassava in the mornings and in the afternoons and nights she consumed it as a curry. After a month, she performed a cystoscopy to find out that her cancer was completely gone.
What cassava plant does to your body?
Once the cassava plant enters the body, the vitamin B17 combines with Rhodanese, an enzyme that can break down the vitamin into three sugars. Cancer cells, on the other hand contain the enzyme, beta-glucosidase, which can break down vitamin B17 into glucose, hydrocyanic acid and benzaldehyde. The hydrocyanic acid acts as a LTTE cyanide capsule and thus efficiently destroys cancer cells.
Once the vitamin gets combined with the enzyme from the cancer cells, it breaks down into one sugar, one benzaldehyde and one hydrocyanic acid, thereby eliminating the cancer cells locally.
