Extracts from Amazon fruit tree have shown dramatic success in killing cancerous cells

Annona muricata tree
The annona tree family has over 110 species mostly growing in the wild with the main ones being Annona muricata found in the Amazon rainforest and the Annona cherimola, which is grown locally and known as ‘matomoko’ in Kenya. A study at the Catholic University of South Korea found that an extract from the plant was 10,000 times more effective in killing colon cancer cells than the drug currently in use.
