Don't do it: This has been used by herbalists forever as a cancer treatment but i was unable to find even a mouse study to support its use. The extract kills cancer cells in test tubes because it is poisonous to mitochondria to begin with. A soursop in the caribbean is the probable cause of their local epidemic of a bizarre parkinson's disease variant.
