Can soursop fruit treat cancer?

Can soursop fruit treat cancer?

No: There is no scientific evidence that soursop fruit can help treat cancer. There are many alternative therapies that have been touted as being cures for cancer, and there are those who try to make a quick buck from very vulnerable patients. If you want to try these types of therapies as complements to your normal cancer care, talk with your oncologist. Some can actually interfere with treatment. ...Read more

Cancer (Definition)

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Can vitiamn b17 prevent and cure cancer?  I heard that eating certain fruit seeds will prevent cancer? Is this used for cancer patients?

No such viitamin: There is no medically recognized vitamin b17. An extract from aprocot pits, laetrile, has been touted as b17 and promoted as cure for cancer with no scientific basis. So called vitamin b17 can cause cyanide poisoning! ...Read more

Does sorsop fruit(laxman phal) help to cure cancer?

Does sorsop fruit(laxman phal) help to cure cancer?

No: People with cancer can try to eat a healthy balanced diet that is tailored to their abilities (as their eating or digesting abilities may have decreased due to illness). They may need supplements or more of certain foods, to make up for special needs due to illness. However, trying to eat or drink more of a particular food that is NOT proven to help humans with SPECIFIC cancer issues, is not good. ...Read more

Can naturopathy and Ayurvedic medicine cure stage 4 pancreatic cancer?

Can naturopathy and Ayurvedic medicine cure stage 4 pancreatic cancer?

No: If the diagnosis is correct, then they want to play you for a fool. Please forgive my frankness, and call me unspiritual if you want. It is hard enough to have incurable cancer -- harder still to be taken for thousands of dollars by sweet-talkers who may themselves be deceived. If you realize you have been scammed, call your local prosecutor -- i'll testify for free if it will help. ...Read more

Cancer cell loves sugar.R  fruits not suitable as cancer patients' diet? Read sum books tat veggie n fruit diet can inhibit cancer cell.Is tat correc?

Not effective: Cancer cells survive by outcompeting your normal cells. They certainly thrive on sugar, but all cells do. If you were to limit sugar, to starve out cancer, you would starve out every other cell as well. Veggie and fruit diets have health benefits but no proven anti-cancer benefits. ...Read more

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop, how about papaya?

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop, how about papaya?

Worthless: Please forgive my frankness. If you're going to survive in a world full of sweet-talking disinformation artists, you're going to have to learn to recognize obvious untruths. There is nothing "spiritual" about believing something on emotion. Papaya is worthless as a cancer Rx and so is soursop. In science, truth can't be hidden. If either worked, the NIH piranhas would have proved it years ago. ...Read more

Can herbal supplements help to treat cancer?

Can herbal supplements help to treat cancer?

Not alone: We cannot trust herbals or remedies that have no good evidence that they help in serious research studies. In patients that have no good alternative to be cured herbals may be tried for compassion. Not all cancers are treated the same.

Banana, garlic, lemons(calamansi), tomatoes, and honey are found to cure hypertension or help lower risk. If used as a mixed juice, can this still cure?

Banana, garlic, lemons(calamansi), tomatoes, and honey are found to cure hypertension or help lower risk. If used as a mixed juice, can this still cure?

Hypertension: "help lower risk" is very different from "cure hypertension." some juices may be healthy when they contain antioxidants, like garlic. You really need to keep a close watch on your blood pressure, because even without symptoms it can still be high and affecting your organs (like blood vessels, heart, brain, and kidneys, etc). Please work with your doctor, and don't rely on juices alone. ...Read more

The throat cancer treatment
soursop and cancer cure?

Proven vs unproven: By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". Soup may comfort but not cure. ...Read more
