Is This Fruit Extract 10,000 Times
Better Than Chemotherapy?

Over a quarter of a century ago a study was performed on the seeds of the Soursop fruit, also known as graviola, which at that time demonstrated such amazing cancer-fighting potential, that those exposed to it within the conventional medical community looked upon it with complete incredulity.
Published in the Journal of Natural Products in 1996, Compound 1, one of five extracted from the seed of the graviola fruit, was found to be “selectively cytotoxic to colon adenocarcinoma cells (HT-29) in which it was 10,000 times the potency of adriamycin.”
Adriamycin is the trade name for the chemoagent doxorubucin and is known by the nickname “red devil,” due to both its deep red color and terrible side effects, which include life-threatening, even fatal damage to the cardiovascular system. This abject lack of “selective cytotoxicity” — the ability to kill only the cancer cells and not healthy ones – is what makes Adriamycin so dangerous. And yet, it has been a first line treatment for a wide range of cancers for almost half a century.
Since the 1996 study, little research on graviola was performed. There was a cell study in 1999 which showed it had anti- prostate cancer and breast cancer activity; another 2002 cell study showed that graviola exhibited anti-hepatoma (liver cancer) activity, but nothing as promising as the original 1996 study ever followed.
Then, in 2011, the journal Nutrition and Cancer revealed highly promising research on Graviola and breast cancer. Researchers found that graviola fruit extract (GFE) suppressed so-called oncogene (or cancer-causing gene) expression in the cell and animal models of breast cancer. The oncogene known as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is commonly over-expressed in breast cancer, and therefore an ideal target for therapy.
According to the researchers
“A a 5-wk dietary treatment of GFE (200 mg/kg diet) significantly reduced the protein expression of EGFR, p-EGFR, and p-ERK in MDA-MB-468 [breast cancer] tumors by 56%, 54%, and 32.5%, respectively. Overall, dietary GFE inhibited tumor growth, as measured by wet weight, by 32% (P < 0.01).” [emphasis added]
The study authors concluded
“These data showed that dietary GFE induced significant growth inhibition of MDA-MB-468 cells in vitro and in vivo through a mechanism involving the EGFR/ERK signaling pathway, suggesting that GFE may have a protective effect for women against EGFR-overexpressing BC [breast cancer].” [emphasis added]
Given these findings the time may be ripe for reconsideration of graviola in the prevention and/or treatment of cancers, such as colon and breast cancer.

My Dear Friend,
Imagine you’re working in a drug company.
Suddenly, you stumble across a natural compound that’s…
…10,000 times more toxic to colon cancer cells than a common chemo drug…
…lethal to 12 different kinds of malignant cells, especially those that cause lung, prostate, and breast cancers…
…safe enough that it protects healthy cells instead of killing them…
…doesn’t cause extreme nausea or hair loss…
…and this treatment doesn’t make cancer patients drop huge amounts of weight, get weak, or compromise their immune systems…
Wouldn’t you naturally want people to know about it? Think about how many lives it could save…how much suffering it could wipe away…how much a discovery like this could change the face of medicine forever!
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to question your common decency. Far from it. What I’m suggesting is that I think you’d be as shocked as I was when I found out what I’m about to tell you…
One of America’s billion-dollar drug companies sat on this very same super-potent, super-safe cancer treatment — for seven years!
The web of intrigue I’m about to unravel is as compelling as any Hollywood plot. How so?
Picture this. Scene:
The Amazon. Act One: A drug company with a billion-dollar bank account discovers two phytochemicals trapped in the seeds of a plant that grows here in the jungle.
These naturally occurring chemicals literally destroy cancer cells. And without harming healthy cells. In fact, extracts from the same plant actually boost immunity!
Does the drug company tell the world? Call the newspapers?
Not on your life.
Instead, it’s Act Two:
The company orders researchers into the lab to isolate the natural chemicals so they can crank out a patented, prescription version of the drug. They do this for seven years before they finally give up…the synthesized version just isn’t working. (And you can’t patent natural compounds — it’s against the law.)
So what do they do next?
Instead of publishing their findings, they box up the research and put it away to collect dust…never to be seen again.
The End? Not quite.
Thank God for independent thinkers!
This incredible natural compound from the Amazon — called Graviola — would have stayed hidden forever if it hadn’t been for one courageous researcher who couldn’t bear to see this discovery locked away.
Finally, in a series of confidential communications, he came forward. His career was on the line. But everything he revealed was so profound, it may change the history of medicine as we know it!
At the very least…
Doctors and patients are going to forever change the way they think about treating cancer. How do I know? I’ll tell you more about this incredible discovery…and hundreds more just as hidden, just as potent…in just a second. But first, let me share with you another kind of story. This one has an even happier ending…
How Daryl S. made 20 malignant tumors
disappear — in less than two months !
Daryl S. is an executive in a high-tech company in Texas.
I’m not going to give his last name because, like a lot of people, he likes to keep his medical affairs quiet. In fact, like a lot of people (especially men) Daryl used to rarely give his health a second thought. That is…
Until his doctor diagnosed him with prostate cancer.
Sonogram and a biopsy confirmed it. An incredible 20 malignant tumors had formed around Daryl’s prostate.
Alarm bells went off. Daryl wasn’t the least bit surprised when one of his doctors recommended surgery. But his doctor was surprised when Daryl refused it. You see…
Daryl knew then what a lot of men fear. Prostate surgery comes with a risk of lifelong impotence and loss of bladder control. He didn’t want that. No more than any man would. So what did Daryl do?
First, he agreed to less invasive hormonal therapy. Working with your doctor is critical when it comes to serious things like cancer. But Daryl also took some responsibility into his own hands. He set to work, researching every alternative prostate treatment he could find.
Some of the most compelling evidence was what he found about Graviola, the incredible natural compound I just told you about. The one that otherwise would have gotten lost in the dark filing cabinets of a pharmaceutical company.’
Daryl immediately started himself on a rigorous program of supplements, including Graviola. Now keep in mind, this substance has long list of potent health applications…from destroying cancer cells to boosting immunity to improving your sense of general well-being.
And guess what. It paid off.
Within two months, Daryl’s PSA levels plummeted from a dangerous 4.1 to a perfectly normal 0.00. And sonogram and gamma-ray tests showed that every prostate tumor had completely disappeared!
Incredible? Not when you find out why ‘unconventional’ healing stories like Daryl’s could happen a lot more often than they already do…
How thousands of patients could avoid needless suffering every year just by knowing ahead of time about powerful healers most drug companies would rather keep under wraps
Let’s face it.
Drug companies are in business. We like business. And anybody can see why it only makes sense that they plan to make their biggest money selling drugs nobody else has the right to make. There’s no other way to keep shareholders happy. But the terrible downside is this…
Certain natural compounds — no matter how powerful, how effective, how miraculous they prove to be — will never make it out of drug company research labs. In fact, most won’t get researched at all. Why?
Because it’s simply not profitable to develop a treatment that can’t be patented. Again, don’t get me wrong.
I’m not saying there’s some big conspiracy under foot.
I’m not saying there isn’t, either.
I’m just suggesting that trusting drug companies to dictate what’s best for you…and leaving it at that…well…
It’s a lot like asking a cat to look after your goldfish. Let me show you what I mean…
Millions of lives that probably could have been
saved over the last 25 years…but weren’t
How many people do you think have been diagnosed with cancer since 1976? Take a guess. It’s well over 20 million. How many died from the disease? About 6 million.
Yet, when U.S. scientists first suggested Graviola might unlock the cancer dilemma…Gerald Ford was still in the White House!
That’s right. It was 1976. And since then, over 20 different lab studies… including prolonged research by Purdue University and the National Cancer Institute…all pointed to the same thing: Graviola is a dynamo when it comes to destroying cancerous cells.
Yet not one drug company we’ve found took up the gauntlet and ran with it.
Like I said earlier, thank God for independent thinking…
