(NaturalNews) The Camelot Cancer Care center in Tulsa, Oklahoma has been shut down. The FBI and the FDA showed up in April with a search warrant and seized computers, invoices, bills, cellphones, and important treatment that patients were receiving. Investigators would not speak about why they were there, but patients report that they were there to seize an illegal, unapproved cancer treatment called laetrile, obtained from apricot pits.

Laetrile's legal history

In the 1970s, Mexico welcomed thousands of people seeking alternative treatments like laetrile. At this time, some doctors began to sell laetrile in the United States as an alternative to FDA cancer drugs and chemotherapy. This went on until a National Cancer Institute study concurred that laetrile from apricot pits caused cyanide poisoning. The propaganda ensued and the FDA took it into their hands to protect people from ever using it. Several states fought the FDA's censorship of the natural substance, but federal courts backed the FDA in 1980 and made it illegal.

Laetrile can still be found on the Internet though, sometimes called amygdalin or vitamin B17. Websites that do sell it are being targeted and shut down by the federal government, including David Arjona's www.worldwithoutcancer.com and Jason Vale's www.apricotsfromgod.com. Laetrile products have been reemerging on the internet recently as the FDA goes on the prowl, shutting down sellers in Florida, New York, and Ohio in the past year.

Woman denied laetrile treatment by the FDA

One of the people benefiting from the use of laetrile at the natural clinic was Yvonne Bass. She had been battling melanoma and was deathly ill. Chemotherapy and surgeries just weren't working for her. This led her to change her diet and her philosophy on her cancer.

She and her husband Sam Bass spoke highly of the Camelot Cancer Care center and the natural extract of laetrile that was helping reverse her terminal illness. The Basses had spent the last eight days in Tulsa partaking in a 21-day cancer treatment program, when the FBI and the FDA showed up. Federal agents instructed Sam and his wife Yvonne to leave their medication behind.

"Listen, my wife's dying, and we don't want to go with chemotherapy and radiation," said Sam Bass.

"My wife is dying of cancer and, for us, this was a hope and they took our hope away," Bass said. "They took our rights, in my opinion, for me and my wife to choose how to treat her."

For the Basses, Camelot Cancer Care was the answer. Camelot is an alternative cancer clinic that fights disease with natural treatments. "It's a natural route that I've done a lot of research on," Bass said. Sam believes without laetrile, his wife may not survive. "I just want my wife to get well. I've got three kids at home, they need their mom. I need my wife," Bass said.

The clinic remains closed.

Freedom or compliance?

Further investigations into the testimonies of people who've received treatment at Camelot confirm that laetrile is working. Patricia Gilmore has also been battling cancer. She was already in stage two when she came to the facility seeking treatment on December 5, 2012. Ever since, she believes her treatment is working. "I'm 81 years old and I just feel great. I'm strong, and I'm healthy," she says.

What do you think? Should people with cancer have the right to treat themselves the way they desire or should everyone comply accept death by chemotherapy?
