Soursop: a natural cancer killer
Published: Thursday | June 25, 2009
It seems a cure for cancer could finally be here. Information circulating on the Internet claims that research has indicated that extracts from the miraculous Graviola tree are 10,000 times stronger than chemo.
Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree, it now may be possible to attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss, but protects the immune system and combats deadly infections.
The fruit is said to have been studied by one of America's largest drug manufacturers, with over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970s. What those tests revealed was that extract from the tree were shown to effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.
Stronger than chemo drug
The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
What's more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!
When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola came in fast and furious.
The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells". Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public.
Kills colon cancer cells
A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea, stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at, "10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin ... "
The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched, unlike chemotherapy which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells) causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.
A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers.
Guess it couldn't hurt to have a glass of soursop.
