Cancer cure. What happen with the soursop? Is the soursop (the fruit from the Graviola tree) a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy? Is this fruit a “miracle” and a viable alternative to present medical cancer treatments?
Soursop is the fruit of Annona muricata, a broadleaf, flowering, evergreen tree native to tropical areas. Both, in America and Africa. It is in the same genus, Annona, as cherimoya and is in the Annonaceae family.
Can this popular Yucatan fruit really cure cancer?
News are all around the web. It seems that some laboratory studies found that a compound isolated from soursop seeds had 10,000 times the potency of one particular chemotherapy drug on colon adenocarcinoma cells. Furthermore, in laboratory tests, extracts of graviola has been shown to kill certain types of liver and breast cancer cells that are resistant to particular chemotherapy drugs. Great! Then, is this fruit the solution for this tragic disease? Maybe, but we have to wait.
Since 1976, soursop has proven to be a potent cancer killer in independent laboratory tests. But scientists warn that there have been no large scale tests on humans and there is no credible evidence to support claims that graviola is an effective cure or treatment for cancer.
Thus, while plant compounds in graviola may have properties that can kill cancer cells in vitro, caution is required as there is no evidence of safety or efficacy in humans.
Despite the lack of human data, many websites promote graviola to cancer patients. They are based on traditional use and on the in vitro studies. But take care and speak with your doctor?
