Let us first look at what cancer really is before we delve into the healing powers of the soursop fruit as it pertains to cancer. Most of us know of cancer and know that it is a serious illness but many do not understand what cancer essentially is and how it works.

Our body is made up of a countless number of cells. In order for development and growth to take place there must be cell division, new cells are formed and old cells die all in a natural cycle. Cancer however is the disruption of this cycle, they do not die like normal cells, they just continue to grow. This growth abnormality is as a direct result of damage to the cell’s DNA. Usually when the DNA of a cell is damaged it would be repaired or if not the cell would ultimately die. With cancer cells however there is no repair and no death just constant growth. When cells begin to divide and grow beyond control and further they begin to affect other tissue in the body those disruptive cells are categorized as cancer cells. There are over one hundred different types of cancer, all name based on the original cells which caused the disruption. Therefore Lung Cancer is the uncontrollable growth and spread of cells in the lungs, Breast Cancer pertains to the growth of cells in the breast, etc. So contrary to common belief the type of cancer someone has is not indicative of where the cancer is, it only points out where the cancer started.

The Soursop or graviola has been studied extensively by Purdue University’s School of Pharmacy and has undergone many other studies since the 1970’s all of them proving that the soursop fruit has the innate ability to target the damaged cells and kill them causing a balance in the cycle of cell growth and development. However questions as to how effective it is at totally stopping the pattern of uncontrolled cell division in the body are left with no clear answers.

“The recent research on soursop focuses on a novel set of chemicals called Annonaceous acetogenins. These annonaceous acetogenins are produced in the soursop leaf, bark, and seeds. Several research groups have verified that these chemicals display tremendous properties of antitumor and selective toxicity against various types of cancer cells, all while causing no harm to regular healthy cells. Many of the acetogenins have demonstrated selective toxicity to tumor cells at very low dosages, as little as 1 part per million. Since 1997 the novel alkaloids found in the soursop fruit have illustrated incredible antidepressive effects.

The soursop belongs to the Annonaceae family or Custard Apple family to which the annonaceous acetogenins are aboriginal. These chemicals in general have been documented with antitumorous, antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimicrobial activities. Mode of action studies in three separate laboratories have recently determined that these acetogenins are superb inhibitors of enzyme processes that are only found in the membranes of cancerous tumor cells. This is why they are toxic to cancer cells but have no toxicity to healthy cells.

The Annonaceous acetogenins discovered in soursop thus far include: annocatalin, annohexocin, annomonicin, annomontacin, annomuricatin A & B, annomuricin A thru E, annomutacin, annonacin, annonacinone, annopentocin A thru C, cis-annonacin, cis-corossolone, cohibin A thru D, corepoxylone, coronin, corossolin, corossolone, donhexocin, epomuricenin A & B, gigantetrocin, gigantetrocin A & B, gigantetrocinone, gigantetronenin, goniothalamicin, iso-annonacin, javoricin, montanacin, montecristin, muracin A thru G, muricapentocin, muricatalicin, muricatalin, muri-catenol, muricatetrocin A & B muricatin D, muricatocin A thru C muricin H, muricin I, muricoreacin, murihexocin 3, murihexocin A thru C, murihexol, murisolin, robustocin, rolliniastatin 1 & 2, saba-delin, solamin, uvariamicin I & IV, xylomaticin.
