After reading Santos’ post, I looked up “sour sop” on Wikipedia. The article confirmed that sour sop is anti cancer. While I was there on the Wikipedia article, I started looking up the References there. At this point…I have only read the information in three or four of the references. The references are from credible sources, are recent, and moving. I will continue to research this, and possibly update this article.
I read santos’ profile on Google+. Click on santos amaru …then click on “About”. He deserves credit for service to society, please let him know that you appreciate his efforts.

The appropriate dose of graviola depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for graviola. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
