American scientists have named the fruit, which contains the strongest anti-cancer substance in the world.
The guanabana tropical fruit of the graviola tree is characterized by the most powerful anti-cancer effect. It is also known as soursop. The juice of this fruit is capable of producing detrimental effect on cancer cells. It has a pleasant taste and does not entail such negative consequences as chemotherapy.
It is widely believed in the countries where this fruit grows that guanabana helps in treating all forms of cancer. Since 1970, there have been more than 20 studies which prove that the extract of guanabana destroys malignant cells of 12 types of cancer, including cancer of the colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas.
