    I don't know anything about it,

    but Sloan-Kettering's website has a good overview, including links to a number of studies.  And btw, welcome to the forum, as I see you've just joined!  Ann Alexandria

    It is wise to be cautious and do as much objective research

    as you can.  When I looked this up there were two links one right on top of the other ...

    Link #1: A youtube video that claimed it was "A Natural Cancer Cell Killer"

    Link #2: An article by a toxicologist warning that there are potential neurotoxins in the fruit and leaves of graviola and that chronic consumption could be risky.

    If your mother is to be having conventional chemo treatments you may want to be careful about what you add -- not saying it cannot be down and have benefit -- but just use caution.

    Perhaps someone with more experience than me will be able to provide more information. -- Cynthia

    I have been making tea from
    I have been making tea from soursop leaves for a few weeks now. No side effects, but no obvious results to speak off to date. I find garciol of more interest extracted from garcinia indica, so you may want to research this too.

    I asked my natriopathic

    I asked my natriopathic oncologist about this supplement. Sadvise ended that there really isn't much proven data on itsability to fight cancer, but there was some indication that it can interfere with the effectiveness of folfox I decided not to use it, but may give it a try now that I am done chemo.  I think it's best to consult with a natriopath if you decide to use any supplements as well as your oncologist who should know what you are taking if you are on chemo.

    Proceed with Caution.

    I have been told about this herb by many many people..

    Read all you can before taking it.. if you take too much or stay on it too long.. it can cause Parkinson's.. do you really need that on top of what you have?
