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

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

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop. but how is the papaya?

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop. but how is the papaya?

These are scams: People make this stuff up as entertainment. There are no 'superfoods to fight cancer.' I wish there were -- you'd see us physicians taking advantage of them, and especially the research piranhas at the NIH and the spymasters of the world. They don't know anything that we don't. Relative protection -- eat sensibly, avoid tobacco, don't abuse alcohol, & maintain surveillance with your doctor. ...Read more

Is guanabana soursop safe to take ? What about if you have lung cancer?

Yes: In general natural fruit juices without any concentrates or additives are ok and possibly good; certain fruit extracts like grape fruit may interact with certain metabolic pathways in the liver and affect the efficacy/toxicity of cancer treatments; check with your oncologist during the treatments to make sure he/she is aware of such supplements. ...Read more

Had anyone been cured from breast cancer using soursop leaves?

Had anyone been cured from breast cancer using soursop leaves?

No: This is a vicious, cynical scam. The plant (seeds are worst) is actually a neurotoxin. It is poisonous to some cancer cells in culture which is no surprise (just about anything can have an effect on stuff growing in a petri dish). There's not even an animal model, and anyone who offers a human testimonial is lying -- it would have been published and a scientist's reputation made. ...Read more

The throat cancer treatment soursop and cancer cure?

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
