As man struggles in labs to create something that may successfully treat cancer without killing patients, effective and healthful treatments wait in nature to be discovered. But while Big Pharma scientists toil and have nothing to show for it but drugs that are as harmful as they are helpful, some researchers are looking for those natural solutions that could hold the key to something as deadly as cancer. Enter the exotic tropical fruit: soursop.
A truly tropical fruit, soursop (also known as graviola, guanabana, and guyabano) is a large and unassuming healer. Research over the past few decades have indicated it has amazing anti-cancer properties. Yet many people have yet to hear about the health benefits of guyabano.
The first promising study of soursop occurred in 1996 when researchers found a compound extracted from the fruit was deadly to cancer cells but allowed healthy cells to live. They discovered not only did the compound selectively annihilate cancer cells, but it did so at a rate 10,000 greater than the common and harmful anti-cancer drug andriamycin. Andriamycin, incidentally, is nicknamed the “red devil” because of its color and it’s potentially deadly side effects.
In 1999, another study found soursop compounds to be effective at reducing prostate and breast cancer cell activity. In 2002, scientists learned it could similarly inhibit liver cancer activity.
Finally, in 2011, a study published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer, affirmed its anti-breast cancer activities.
Researchers on the latest study found that simply eating soursop could have incredible anti-cancer benefits in animals with a an over-expressed gene that frequently leads to breast cancer.
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a cancer-causing gene commonly over-expressed in breast cancer patients.
According to the study authors:
“These data showed that dietary GFE induced significant growth inhibition of MDA-MB-468 cells in vitro and in vivo through a mechanism involving the EGFR/ERK signaling pathway, suggesting that GFE may have a protective effect for women against EGFR-overexpressing BC [breast cancer].”
Experiencing the anti-cancer benefits of soursop in the U.S. means eating imported fruits bought at specialty markets (check your local Caribbean or Asian market). It does not grow in the U.S. outside of the very tropical areas of southern Florida, where it still doesn’t always survive.
While we don’t always advocate purchasing produce that has flown from across the globe, the healing properties of this fruit may be worth the expense. In addition to having anti-cancer benefits, the fruit is also a diuretic and a remedy for liver ailments. The leaves are reportedly deadly to head lice and bedbugs, and have a sedative effect when taken internally as in an infusion.

I do not know where you are getting your info. on when it was tested and studied. But, the dates/years are not right. This was discovered much earlier than 1996. And there is scientific proof that sour sop fruit, that what is being said is valid. Get your facts straight!
Soursop is available abundantly in Honolulu Chinatown for about 2.99 @ Lb
see ya in Paradise
it is GUANABANA or… graviola… you misspelled the word. and Yes it prevents cancer and can fight some cancers. like AMLA (indian fruit) like black cumin, etc etc…
Interestingly enough, but there is a fruit grown right here in the South Eastern US that is 40% more effective that Graviola. What makes me more curious is that it is never seem at the market in the US, at least I have never seen it. It grows both wild and domesticated and goes by the name Paw Paw, a banana tasting fruit.
We’re talking about a cure for cancer and your worrying about dates?!
Save dates are part of truth big pharma would like us to be spreading thier brainwash while they distroyed God’S pharmacy.with misinformation they train the masses to speak their code words against real traditional medicine.which they have you call alternatives when they are the alternative.
The did. It with industrial hemp by having the people call it Cannibis.without defining which cannabis plant among many like lemons,lavender,hops,stinging nettle,marijuana,pine,industrial hemp etc
A leading drug manufacturer study graviola for 10 years
and all results were positive that graviola cured cancer. There was but
one problem, they couldn’t synthesize it. If they cannot synthesize it,
by law they cannot sell it as a drug. Instead of telling the world, they shelve it.
The American and National Cancer Societies know about graviola, but
fund raising is a multi-billion dollar industry they do not want to
I am MRS BENITA OSCAR,i want to testify of the good work of DR ROBERTO AKABAH in the life of my only son God gave me and my husband.
my son was suffering from cancer of his private part that almost took his life,i was confused so also my husband was like we are going to lose the only son and child we had but God never allow that to happen by sending DR AKABAH to our rescue.
A friend send his Email address to us and immediately we contacted him he assured us that our child will not die and we never believed not until he sent what he called the cannabis oil to us and instructed us on how to apply it and after a week our son is up and sound like a new born baby.
So whatever the illness is today just contact the below email address like now.
