Although it cannot be referred to as a cure, papaya leaves have shown to slow cancer growth.

10 of the most common types of cancer were exposed to the extract. Slower growth was noticed in cervix, breast, liver, lung, pancreatic and every other type they examined. Moreover, higher doses provided greater anticancer effect.

This is excellent news for cancer patients, and everyone concerned with the disease. The worst thing is that the number of these people keeps going up. People are willing to spend a fortune in order to cure themselves, but it seems like there is no such a thing as cure for cancer. Yet.

Could it be that the green juice made from papaya can actually cure cancer? Is that the solution to the modern agony? Alternative medicine may have the key to this matter.
