Papaya Leaf – New Alternative Cure For Cancer
A recent study conducted at the University of Florida (by Doctor Nam Dang and his team) together with their Japanese counterparts, documented that the leaf of the common papaya fruit may help in the prevention and cure of certain types of cancer. This information came forward after it was discovered that the leaf of the papaya may hold of interest important cancer fighting abilities.
The study involved papaya leaf extract, who’s strong anti-cancer properties showed an excellent degree of success when applied to numerous lab-grown tumors. It was also noted at the same time that the degree of success when using papaya leaf extract incremented substantially as larger doses were applied.
Over ten different cancers were also exposed as being effected (in a positive manner where all cancer types showed a slowing of growth) when the papaya leaf extract was applied against them. These included: breast cancer, cancer of the cervix, cancer of the colon, leukemia, liver disease, lung cancer, lymphoma, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, and stomach cancer.
Doctor Nam Dang was quoted as saying “Based on what I have seen and heard in a clinical setting, nobody who takes this extract experiences demonstrable toxicity. It seems like you could take it for a long time – as long as it is effective.”
It was the first time that research had been able to show that papaya leaf extract boosted the production of Th1-type cytokines (considered to be key signaling molecules that are important for the regulation of the body’s immune system). A boost to the immunity system is shown to help cure conditions such as: autoimmune disease (diseases that arise from an abnormal immune response of the body against substances and tissues that are present in the body [autoimmune]), and inflammation.
It has long been known of the beneficial properties of the papaya leaf extract to fight off illnesses; however, the study made by Doctor Nam Dang and his Japanese colleges really did underline the importance of such a leaf in cancer research, and research for many other illnesses too. The results were considered an important, and major break-through in the fight against cancer.
Papaya leaf can be found at most good health stores in the form of capsules, dry-leaf, tea (teabags), powder, and tincture (an alcohol-based derivative product of the fresh herb). It is considered to be an extremely safe extract to consume, and would be considered an excellent addition to any daily anti-cancer diet. Studies have shown that papaya leaf extract offers almost zero side-effects when consumed in a stable manner.
