SOURSOP -Natural Cancer KILLER – 10,000 times stronger than Chemo?

How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree? If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Graviola tree. The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rain forest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising. Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to…

  • Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
  • Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
  • Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
  • Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life


The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970’s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing… Extracts from the tree were shown to:

  • Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.
  • The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
  • What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched-so why haven’t you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be-why doesn’t every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients? The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health-and for many, our very lives(!)-are controlled by money and power.

Graviola (Soursop)-the plant that worked too well

One of America ‘s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rain forest. Various parts of the Graviola tree-including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds-have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties-and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.

But that’s where the Graviola (Soursop) story nearly ended.

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree-it’s completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it. It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated.

There was no way the company could protect its profits-or even make back the millions it poured into research. As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research! Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed

When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola-and its shocking cover-up-came in fast and furious… … The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976.

The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public… …

Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials-the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value-were ever initiated… …A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…” …

The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients. …A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers…

Seven years of silence broken-it’s finally here!

A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil , is finally available in America . The full Graviola story-including where you can get it and how to use it-is included in Beyond Chemotherapy: New Cancer Killers, Safe as Mother’s Milk, a Health Sciences Institute FREE special bonus report on natural substances that will effectively revolutionize the fight against cancer.

Graviola, also called Brazilian pawpaw, soursop, and guanaba, in addition to numerous other names, refers to a particular tree or its fruit. The fruit is green and heart shaped, and about six to eight inches (15.24-20.32 cm) in diameter. The tree is found in South America and on numerous tropical islands and grows best in rain-forest climates. The pulp of the fruit is popular in juices, sherbets, and smoothies, and exhibits notes of tangy and sweet. It can also be peeled and eaten, though some find the taste alone too sour.

As a fruit, graviola may not prove exceptional, but it certainly has an extended history of use in ancient and now modern herbal remedies. In early times, the leaves of the graviola were used for tea to reduce swelling of the mucus membranes (catarrh) or to treat liver disease. The black seeds were often crushed and used as a vermifuge. All parts of the tree might be ground and used as a sedative or as an anti-convulsant. The fruit was used to reduce joint pain, to treat heart conditions, as a sedative, to induce labor, or to reduce coughing or flu symptoms.

Known names : SOUR SOP, Graviola, Guanabana. Cancer cura, soursop

  1. You think that is true? I know that there are many natural stuff that work but that one there is something else

  2. So far studies seem to show it will attack many cancer cells highly effectively in a test tube. The problem is the cancerous cells in a body are part of the body and not in a test tube. Things that work in test tube are often ineffective when digested.
    Likewise there was a study on mice which showed promise, but the literature is littered with cases where something worked well in mice and failed in man.
    The soursop is a common topical fruit tree, and has a delicious fruit of white pulp with black seeds. However, it seems the substance to be used here is from the leaves.
    There are many scientists who would love the glory and the Nobel prize for discovering a major cure for cancer. So now the story is out work will probably go on, but nothing happens fast.
    In the meantime, anyone who thinks that taking an extract of this at this time is likely to cure them of cancer is grasping at straws.
    On the other hand, If someone is dying of cancer and has ample funds, better than buying the extract, take a trip to the Caribbean, find a soursop tree, seek the advice of some old herbalist, boil up the leaves and give it a try. It would not be a bad way to spend ones last few months of a life anyway.

  3. Am giving the fruit a try.If I am still around after three months will let you know.
    Sounds too good to be true!

  4. knew the leaves were good to boost the nervous system.
    Will give the fruit to a friend for trial.

  5. Oops I treated my Uncle who had a stroke on his left side of the body by using heat and soursop leaves. Today my uncle is 100% normal..

    I knew there was something special about the plant…

  6. before you all go jumping into the bushes and reaping all the soursop you can find , do some research behind these articles without properly documented reports or studies. Dont believe the common ” in a study by …University” typical sensationalising and bias filling text to articles.

    Sour Sop has a high concentration of Annonacin a chemical compound known to cause brain lesions consistent with Parkinsons Disease. Oh And here are the references

  7. Right now I’m boiling up some leaves. A tree is found in our backyard. I don’t think I’m sick, but I do want to stay healthy.
    Won’t hurt to try. It’s completely natural.


  9. What parts of the sour sop do i eat?
    I heard the stem, leaves,and fruit itself.
    The fruit tasty but the leaves and stems, how do i prepare them? If boiling, what effect do they have on my kidney, liver and heart?


    Veronica L. Snoh

  10. I have found the report to be very informative but I still do not know how to use it. I would like to know hoe it is used expecially for asthma, heart dieseas and cancer.

  11. I definetly will be trying this. Where in Boston can i purchase the fruit fresh and not frozen. Doesn’t hurt to try.

  12. You can’t find the fruit here in the United States. Try Jamaica, Barbados, Saint Lucia, South America, and or Africa. Try looking up Soursop or Soursop cancer under google for more information. From what I understand it can be very beneficial

    1. Im in Honolu Hawaii these trees are abundant here on every island locals the local china town farmers market carry when in season (google your area china town farmers market) and philopino friends eat the fruit for desert (very sweet) and drink the tea daily!
      Im cancer patient and using the tree leaves for tea and drinking this daily!
      Yes the leaves are more ptent green not dried and when green the smell is bad like cat urine! Cant tell the taste is tea once leaves are boiled and simmered to tea.


    My name is Adebayo Johnson, CEO of Worldchangers International.Nigeria,West Africa

  14. Look folks I am Jamaican my mom brew the tea leaves and juice the fruit all the time, we drank it a lot with no problem. We even pick the fruit of the tree and eat it when is ripe. As a matter of fact, we have sour sop trees by the thousands on the Island and locals drink this stuff like there is no tomorrow. If you think Jamaicans are crazy don’t drink it otherwise drink up and be merry.

    Ya mon sour sop no problem.

  15. I’m leaving in the Philippines, in the island of Mindanao. Soursop here, is called Guyabano or Abana. There’s plenty of Soursop trees here and the fruit are just harvested in the backyards. I began to boil leaves for with a ration of tree (3) leaves to one (1) glass of water. So far after a week of drinking Soursop tea, My wife and me experienced good sleep, good waste disposal and a light feeling in the morning.

    We are healthy adults, but we’d like to know what this plant can do to our bodies since it grows aplenty here in our location. I’d like to know how to prepare this kind of medication using other parts of the tree.

  16. My name is Gina Jarrett Alder.
    I was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I am now drinking a cup of sour sop tea every night. I live in Florida and my friend has a tree in her back yard. If anyone wants sour sop leaves, send me an email. Good luck and God bless

  17. honestly these tree is every where in my village,infact i use to eat the dad use to joke with it as natural pounded that i know i will begin to spread the news may be lives will be saved.for me i will discuss with different herbal companies to come together and come out with a strategy to harness these great from kogi state nigeria.thanks abalaka

  18. I was brought up to believe that there is no ailment that God did not create a natural cure for and thsi discovery has just reinforced that doctorine.I am a nigerian and would like to contact Mr. Adebayo Johnson, ”CEO of Worldchangers International.Nigeria,West Africa”for the free seeds.

  19. I got to know about the usefulness of the fruit 2 days ago. Even though, i have eaten the fruit severally. I am a Nigerian from the South-Eastern part of the country. We eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, may be that could be the reason that other tribes believe we are stronger and healthier.

  20. I know for a fact as a kid that graviola is good to decrease blood pressure and arousal. Some third world parents use it to control children who engage in sexual activity at early age. In fact, grown ups males in my surrounding refused to drink its juice because it will make them less potent as a man, but we, young girls, have no fear to drink its juice or ice cream. what we dislike about it is its smell in our glasses after drinking it-it smells like a dog who didn’t take a bath. One can add lemon as antioxidant to it, water, and sugar.

    One can add milk to it and makes a perfect juice. My mother makes tea with the leaf a lot to lower her blood pressure to avoid polypharmacy. I have fact this is a good blood pressure reducing product. Could it be good also for cholesterol?

    However, if someone has a serious nervous breakdown or shock or trauma (right after an accident or an event-event like you hear of a love one death and is greatly in shock), graviola or any of its ingredients or extracts can kill you within minutes. This fruit has been there before I was born. In fact, many of my family members planted it a lot and buy it in the market whenever we don’t have it in the garden. This is a seasonal fruit that many people ignore, but I have fact this is of great importance to high blood pressure and to decrease sexual desire. Being in a family dorm previously, the guys hated to drink it as it decreased their sexual desires they said.
    Graviola’s fresh fruit has a better effect on blood pressure than its process juice.

  21. I don’t know if this is true – Someone said, “one is not allowed to board an airplane with the fruit and the leaf as they may consider to be like drug”.

  22. Jong Curayag,
    If you have it in your backyard, you can contact local grocery stores like Publix, winn dixie, and others and market the leaf like some people did it for basil life. Could that require the presence of FDA to test your tree?

    I do believe many people will buy it as heart disease is very prevalent in the U.S.

    Take home message:

    For those who use blood pressure medication, this is always best to control your blood pressure often as you may not want it to low too much.

    Recipe for the leaf, I believe is, three leaves per 16 oz of cup of water and boil it for 15-20 minutes.





  24. I would like to contact Gina Alder. Please contact me with your e-mail address. I am interested in acquiring the fruit.


  26. I have been diagnosed with advanced prostrate cancer. I tried soursop drink and ate the fruit over a period of two weeks. My PSA went down by half. Unfortunately when I ran out my PSA rose again. I am interested in getting some soursop or leaves as I am struggling to find anymore as season is over. Can anyone help?

  27. Beware of Nigerian Scams, this news will attract all the scammers on he earth. No offence to any nigerian posting her but we all know how we have been affected by these scams.

  28. I have seen the comments given by Martin on December 1, 2009 @ 3:23 pm.I would like to communicate with Mr. Martin immediately. Please give your e-mail address or write me to the following address:

  29. My uncle was diagnosed with Lymphoma last summer…he had two bouts of chemo and refused to do it again..after the chemo..he still had the lymphoma..he started eating the soursop about a month ago …his last check up..they told him whatever he is doing keep doing it…he has no signs of being…I am eating it..daily a little at a time..and I have my daughter have two bites every two is a fruit..I don’t see the harm..

    1. My name is David from the south east of Nigeria,We have lots of Soursop Trees in our backyard, i can package the leaves or the stems to any quantity you desire.,at a token fee..

  30. Please can anyone give any information about the dosage, and are there really any side effects. Where can i get it in lagos, nigeria thanks

  31. In Florida you can buy the plant at some flee market or nursery, because it is seasonal you can only get it begining in early spring. There are also nursery on the internet that will ship it to you. You can also get the pill at health food store. I dont believe it can be grown in london because its not tropical. They also have the frozen juice in spnish, carribean and probable asian stores.

  32. Just reading these comments and would like to point your attention to an article which appeared in The Jamaican Daily Gleaner a leading news paper in Jamaica. The article triggered my internet research about sour sop and I came upon this site. I do not have all the answers but I would say there is something about this plant. Read for yourselves and decide. As far as I know the parties involved has nothing to gain from their story which means a lot to me. The article was published on 1/18/2010 and can be accessed by going to Jamaica Gleaner Online, going to archive for the date indicated and searching for the article titled “The power of Love Raymond Kirlew” or by a google search for the above statement.

    Please post your comments about this article, and what you think.

  33. i would like the e-mail address for Gina Jarret Adler so I could recieve the sour sop leaves, thank you.

    Admin {Please supply your correct email address so i can contact you}

  34. I got some Graviola capsules “healthy cell support, supports immune function, positive mood state” at Wilner compounding pharmacy in NYC. They are made by Now Foods, 395 S. Glen Ellyn rd., Bloomingdale, IL

  35. I take the Graviola (Soursop) together with Anti-Mutagens with Ellagic Acid. also in capsules. Ellagic Acid is found in pomegranates and walnuts. Cancer flourishes in an acid environment so Susan Lark, M.D. suggests that a half teaspoon of Baking Soda in a glass of water be taken every day. HOwever reading the book
    KNOCKOUT Interviews with doctors who are CURING CANCER and how to prevent getting it in the first place by Suzanne Somers, Dr, Nicholas Gonzalez a specialist in pancreatic cancer says he keeps some patients in an acid state.

  36. From what I hear, big companies are determine to keep this wonderful plant a secret as they cannot patent it. Everything coming from “our backyard” for their profit and no sharing of profits! The Lords gift of nature are to be shared not patented! Caution, also, should be taken. Best wishes and speedy recovery to the sick.

  37. I leave in Nigeria, I just lost a close friend to Breast Cancer. I thank the Lord for the infromation on the Gaviola Tree, (Sour Sop)
    I have already begun to fetch the fresh leaves which I shred by hand and dry into tea and i give friends and neighbours. Ofcourse my household also-+.
    This information is coming at a time Cancer(s) have become an epidemic. I am an author, I found space in my new book to write about the Sour Sop as a way of informing people – my reading public.
    Talking about the issue of dosage should not be allowed to become a clogg. For us in this part of the world who are slightly versed in alternative medical information, we also know that nature eliminates whatever comes in exess- if it is still in the form nature made it. However, discretion is often cautioned when I advicse people (especially women) on drinking and eating the sour sop.
    The point here is to make the human bbody alkaline, because scientitsts have alerted us that Cancer Cells are promoted only in a highly acidc body. And sibce the naturally occuring chemicals in the Sour Sop are alkalinsing in nature, you have the clue.
    Once again, I thank the Lord for this infromation, women are already finding succour thorugh eating the Sour sop fruit and drinking the tea.Cheers

  38. We are now in the pick of Sour sop season in Dominica
    The prices are very low now, so I’m taking advantage of this opportunity.
    Normally i just use the pulp to make juice and other times i just eat the whole thing 🙂

  39. I enjoyed reading it. I need to read more on this issue…I am admiring the time and effort you put in your blog, because it is apparently one great place where I can find lot of reusable info..

  40. If you live in L.A. you can find soursop juice in Chinese markets. You can also find frozen guanabana pulp (soursop) in the latino markets. If you are in Florida, you might be able to find the actual fruit in the Cuban markets. I found a website through of an actual fruit market that specializes in all types of exotic fruits. They can even ship it to you. According to them, soursop is in season June/July. I’m sorry I don’t have the name right now, but it was something like I’m sure that’s not it exactly but maybe a search might produce something. Hope this helps. 🙂

  41. Iam very impress from what Iam reading about this fruit. I am a Guyanese but never heard of this fruit what it can do for your health I used to eat it all the time but now I do not know where I can find it in the U.S.A. Can someone be so kind enough to let me know where in Florida I can get it to buy? thank you very much. Hope to hear from you soon

    1. There are grocery stores that sell the pulp or the nectar. The pulp you can find from the manufacturer La Fe, usually found in a frozen pack and the nectar juice from Goya foods. Look it up….

    2. From Trinidad here…It grown in Trinidad as well..soursop makes tasty milky drink…also yes..the leaves make an exceptional herbal’s a slight sedative… use it when you can;t sleep or stressed..usually 2-3 leaves in pot of boiling water would do…dIDN’T KNOW IT was soo beneficial..i live in New Mexico but order tropical fruits online from Florida…If you so happen to live in Florida buy the seeds and plant it in a pot, if it grows well wait till its about 2 feet and plant it into the ground give it enough space for growth and sunlight…the soursop juice is sold in cans but quite not the same… truly awesome though!

      1. I agree with you Debbie, I have always eaten that fruit because its so delicious without even realizing the benefits of it.
        These added benefit is definitely a plus +

  42. where in Kenya, especially Nairobi can Iget this Soursop for my sister who has cancer.WOULD LIKE HER TO START ON IT IMMEDIATELY.

    1. Please can the eating of the soursop fruit regularly prevent cancer or is it the leaves and stems alone that is effective in combating the disease?

  43. This is a very common fruit in Benue State Nigeria. i do it frequently but little did i know is a wonderful drug.

  44. dear sir
    i must do this again , I have cancers of the breath ,my cousin put me on to soursop graviola tablets ,but they are giveing me the runs ,what can i do to ,

    1. wow!!i have this tree in my garden in Jamaica,my mom makes tea from its leaves for us, had no idea it was so beneficial. Jamaica is flourishing with them!

  45. We have sour sop trees these all over St. Elizabeth rotting on trees, not even the local factory won’t buy it! Such a waste!

    1. I have a brother that has stomach cancer we live in Las Vegas and it seems the chemo that he is getting is only making him sicker. We feel that the Dr. is only giving him chemo to extend his life but not really to find a cure he says that only a miracle can save him. what of this fruit plant can he take? maybe the tea leave and how many times? I will keep you posted with the results THANK YOU.

    2. Omg. What a waste. Back here in Malaysia, some of the old folks who knows the benefits are using the leaves to make tea. It smeels leafy but the taste is very nice.

  46. Why it is not used insread of surgery and later the use of chemotherapy? Is there a real scientific accepted research about the use of these fruit> I have been drinking guanabana juice for many years. Thanks

      1. We supply a Natural Health Drink – guyabano or soursop. If interested, please email me at

        Soursop is really very good. Did you know that he Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than the leading commonly used chemotherapeutic drug! And unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!

  58. This herb is the ideal answer for millions of cancers sufferers in the developing countries who cannot afford to pay for the highly priced classical anti-cancer drugs manufactured by rich corporates from the developed world!
    Let me know how to access it please

  59. The soursop has so many health benefits its unbelievable that this has been unknown to us for so long. Along with its ability to target and kill cancer cells it could serve as a sedative as indicated by henrietta. Further it can serve as an antidepressant, prevent muscle spasms and even regulate your heart rate.

  60. It’s not only grown in the Amazon Forest I live in the US Virgin Islands (close to Puerto Rico) and I have one growing in mu back yard

  61. I used to eat like a crazy,person when I was young, take the pulp, put it in a blender add some milk and a little bit of honey, and you get a nice tasty drink.

  62. Am a little crazy with herbal medicines. Came accross turmeric and am processing turmeric powder from rhizomes. But to improve the potency of the powder i mix there a few gaviola leaves, oregano and some other herbal leaves. After i dry the combination, I grind them to powder with a corn mill.

  65. Throughout the Caribbean you can get soursop in anyone’s backyard… I’m currently in American but my grandmother send me soursop leaves and I make tea with them 3 leaves per teacup. It’s good when you can’t sleep as well just 5-10 leaves, 1 cup water 3 teaspoon of sugar and you will be sleep in no time.

  66. I would like to try this fruit/juice/or bark. I really don’t undersatnd just how to use it but I do want to try it.

    1. I would like to use it, but do not know how to use graviola fruits, leaves, roots and bark as herbal medicine. Please share with me.

    2. you can boil 10 leaves in 3 cups of water. easy as that. eat the fruit. My dad had stage 3 prostate cancer when we found out and went through radiation theraphy for 40 days and medication for 6 months when we get to know about soursop ( which is to abundant in our backyard!) and since then no medication has been prescribed by his doctor just because his PSA count has been consistent at 0.01 for 2 years now. We think the soursop has greatly helped.

  67. Hi.. Iam from India, can someone tell me weather this tree or fruit is available in India or not, If not can some one help me with the plantation of this with which I can grow the tree at my backyard

      1. Your Answer is wrong……Ramphan or the Custard apple is sweet fruit…..but this one…I doubt it is available in India…..need to make a trip to the Amazon

  68. guyabano locally called in philippines you can find it anywhere and when i was small we used to pick its fruits but what i like most are those silk worms who eat the leaves and turn into large butterflies

  69. Please tell me where I can get this tree or the fruit from it, thankyou, brigid mc gurk. i live in Northern Ireland.

    1. Hi Brigid, you could try at the nursery for a tree, but it is a tropical tree and would need very special attention in N Ireland. If all else fails you could try growing one from seed in pure compost and see what happens.
      I understand leaves and extracts are now available through health shops.
      Good luck in your search.

    2. Hi Brigid you can actually buy this fruit in some Asian market. This fruit has different names ( guanabana, guyabano and etc.

  70. im lucky…ahhh i have some fruits in my house,actually they are now over ripe and some more to come,,lots in our backyard.some we just give to friends and neighborhood,its just an ordinary fruit here in the philippines.tnx god.

  71. Every thing is fine & accepted but where are we going to get it in INDIA, that to of good medicinal quality.

  72. Guys, this plant is widely available in Jamaica. Even Jamaican foodstores in the USA might have it in their stores. If you have a friend from Jamaica they will even send it to you at no cost and yet in its purest form. Jamaicans drink it for breakfast starting as healthy kids most/every morning, hence, low cancer rate. I have to believe that I now have cancer because I migrated from that lifestyle for the past ten years…oh, the regret. Having leaves ship in.

    1. do you have a Nigerian friend?
      if yes, tell him to get some pieces for you on his/her next trip from nigeria. it’s a bit costlier to us but you can afford it.

  73. There is not a limited supply of Sour Sop. I have tons of trees on my 60 acre property in Central America. Therefore, the extract can be easily made and plentiful at that. If you feel the AMA was in the wrong by not revealing the truth you should practice what you preach. It is okay to sell the product but it is not okay to mislead your potential buyers. The stuff is readily available in many parts of the world. Tell the whole truth and you’ll find that you’ll be able to sell your product much more so than by duping people into believing it is not a common tree in many, many parts of the world. Moreover, before I moved to Central America….I lived in the Pantanal of Bolivia/Brazil (the river veins that extend from the Amazon). The trees grow for several hundreds if not thousands of square miles and are very plentiful.

  74. We have Soursop in Hawaii too. Just tried it for the first time and it is very tasty. Kind of like a pina colada.

  75. I live in MN and our Pastor has stage one prostate cancer…PLEASE where can we order the Graviola Tree Leaves or tea whatever it is that people use to help cure cancer. How and where do I order it??? Thanks for your help!

  76. If anyone would tell me that this fruit has some health benefits I would not have believed them. I remember being in Haiti we used to eat this fruit and drink juice just like that. This fruit is very good and knowing that it can call cancer cells make guanabana the ideal fruit. I am helping in spreading the word about this fruit.

    1. This fruit is found in the commonwealth of Doninica. It can be purchased in the US at your local hispanic supermarket in the freezer section.

  77. I live in Costa Rica now. At the Farmer’s Market I have been able to buy guanabana fruit every weekend this year. (Jan – May 2012)

    I live in the Bahamas and this tree grows here and can be grown from seeds. There is a tree in my mother’s yard in Nassau, but I don’t think there are any fruits on it now. If you know anyone who lives in the Bahamas that you can contact to get you some seeds it shouldn’t be too difficult to get them to grow in Florida.

  86. Hello,

    can you please tell me, where i can find this fruit in germany or europe? we have a cancer patient in our family, so i hope someone can help us!

    1. A relative who heard about soursop told me and my wife about it before we went on vacation in the Philippines on March 8,2013. In the Philippines, we immediately requested the folks in the province to gather leaves of the Guyabano tree ( soursop in english). We instructed them not to dry the leaves under the sun but to shaded places only inorder not to lose its healing ingredient.I brought a lot of dried leaves on my way back to the US and started drinking the water boiled from the dried leaves.To my amazement, my blood sugar is reduced from 140 to 119, 109 and ultimately to below 99, which is normal.I had my blood test read by my physician who is an internist and told me that my creatinine serum dropped from 1.34 to 1.24 which is a normal value. I stopped taking Actos which gave me limb pain after taking it for 10 years.Als0, i reduced my Lantus insulin from 16 units to 6 units just this morning, because my blood sugar dropped to 98. I just would like to share this experience to anybody who are suffering from diabetes and to the side effect of diabetic pill such as Actos. I wish i can tell Takeda phamaceuticals to stop selling Actos because it did do harm than good in terms of limb pain. Right now i dont have those knee pain anymore, right shoulder pain, stiffnes on my both hands, etc.

  92. from what I have been able to find reading about this, it looks to be an extremely viable treatment option. Any direct information and/or research papers would be extremely helpful.

  93. Thanks for this miracle, my story is had 3 people died cancer that were hard medication and chemo they all passed away.

  94. Am been using it for quite somethimes but never knew it was so good.Usually eat the fruit at night before going to bed,its very good it calms the nerves and gives you a good night rest.My mother used to boil the leaves and make thea for us .


  96. I recently heard that this fruit cures cancer. I’ve had two person died in my family from cancer so i feel that this fruit will be perfect for my family members. The fruit is not so popular in the Bahamas so there are a few trees on the island where i lived. I started drink it as a tea and when i find the fruits i made smoothie from it which is very refreshing. For the few times drink the tea it really helps with the sinus congestion and coughing. Is there anyway i can get the tea from the stores because it is difficult to find

    1. It is true that this fruit has the potential to treat cancers including prostrate cancer, and this fruit is common in Ghana. Fortunately too noni plant also does the same healing and it is getting common in Ghana as people are cultivating the trees now.

  97. I’ve known this fruit by the name soursop and guanabana ( in Spanish) but have not heard the name graviola. My mother used to recommend steeping the leaves in boiling water and drinking the water as a sleep aid. The article seems to have attributed anti-cancer properties to extracts from the leaves and stems — possibly — but not necessarily to the fruit itself which, by the way, makes a wonderful beverage. Time will tell what other benefits the fruit/plant offers.

  98. My sister and I were in Ocho Rios and a nice lady was our driver. We had signed up to do some outings where you got in the water. We came back to the car and she had picked some leaves for us and told us what it was. I brought it home and boiled a cup of tea. It was delicious. The shock was that I did have cancer in my brain and she did not know that information.
