Soursop – Graviola

Over three decades ago, in 1976, the National Cancer Institute performed a study on the soursop fruit (also known as graviola) which demonstrated amazing cancer-fighting potential. Results of this research showed that graviola was quite effective at attacking and destroying the malignant cells.

As a matter of fact, graviola was found to be “selectively toxic” to colon cancer cells and was also calculated to be 10,000 times more potent than Adriamycin chemotherapy (also known as doxorubicin). Adriamycin is oftentimes called “red devil” due to its deep red color and terrible side effects, which include life-threatening (sometimes fatal) damage to the cardiovascular system. Even though Adriamycin is NOT selectively toxic to cancer cells (i.e. it kills ALL cells – even healthy cells), it has been a first choice of chemo for over 50 years.

In 2011, researchers found that graviola fruit extract (GFE) suppressed so-called oncogene (or cancer-causing gene) expression in breast cancer. The oncogene, known as epidermal growth factor receptor, is commonly over-expressed in breast cancer, and therefore an ideal target for therapy.

      hi there, I believe this is called a custard apple and not a soursop (although they could be related). I have both of these fruit trees in my garden as a child and eaten both. They taste different. This custard apple is creamier but not juicy unlike the soursoup. I hope this can be clarified since people who may not have the good fortune like I did to grow up in my parent’s farm may then be unintentionally misled. Sincerely.

  1. Soursop is a wonderful food with lots of benefits. It also helps fight cancer cells with lots of testimonies to back it up.
