    Has anyone heard of the Graviola Tree?

    10000 times stronger killer of CANCER than Chemo"..

    The Sour Sop or the fruit from the Graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.

    Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.

    Drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden.
    The other parts of the tree are also useful.
    The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.

    This tree is low and is called graviol

      Because there is no evidence that any of that is true.

      Basically, there are some risks to trying it... and no evidence that it's a cure for cancer.

      Wikipedia page on the graviola tree is also quite good. Says essentially the same thing. No data for treatment of human cancer.

      Sounds great... I would love it if I could just drink a bit of sour juice and be assured of an effective cure for cancer. But, the data are not there.

      Best wishes.

      Unfortunately this appears to be more like one of those emails with information about Miracle Cures. I believe this can safely be lumped together with the "cure" using baking soda.

      Unfortunately, there is no known cure-all for cancer. There are so many different types of cancer cells that even with standard-of-care chemotherapy drugs from Big Pharma, only a certain drug will work on a particular cancer. The list of foods, herbs and botanical substances that has been put forth as potentially having some benefits for preventing and treating cancer or the side-effects is long. There's everything from graviola to cannabis to broccoli. Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has a short list http://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/integrative-medicine/about-herbs#All that includes graviola http://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/herb/graviola

      Anything outside of the standard-of-care mainstream medicine is called Complimentary and Alternative Medicine, or Integrative Medicine. Some of what's out there is good. Some is garbage. Some is harmful. One thing I will always agree with is this statement from the National Cancer Institute, "It is important that the same scientific evaluation that is used to assess conventional approaches be used to evaluate CAM therapies." That means it's important to consider the source, where they get their information, how they reach their conclusions. Remember that big pharmaceutical corporations are not the only ones out there trying to make money. What they do have that's important is the scientific research. When your life is in the balance, the last thing you want to do is gamble on a long list of longshots to intervene in the course of a disease without knowing exactly what you're doing. But it is interesting, and I have started to consult with dad's doctor about the possibility of including at least one of these complimentary items that has some kind of science to back it up, into my dad's care with one concern-- that it does no harm. If something does no harm, and it meets a standard of science, in my opinion that's the only time it's worth a try.
