Morion's PhotoGallery 101| "Guyabano"


"Guyabano" 
Featured shots were taken on March 17, 2012 at Surigao City, Surigao Del Norte using GE x500 Camera.

TRIVIA: Soursop (English) /Guyabano's scientific name is Annona Muricata. The wonder fruit known as The Natural Cancer Cell Killer is  native to Philippines. Scientific studies proved that Guyabano tree's bark, leaves and fruits contains one chemical that is 10,000 times the potency of the chemotherapy drug Adriamycin.

  1. Guyabano is delicious! I really wish the scientists would do an extensive study about its cancer-killing capabilities, instead of guyabano being treated as an alternative medicine and the knowledge being spread through word of mouth alone. The big pharma companies will not be thrilled but the thought of defeating something as ominous as cancer with something as simple, abundant, and relatively inexpensive as guyabano is quite a thrill.

  11. Haven't had some guyabanos in ages. I so wanna try the sour but sweet flesh that nobody can go wrong with. I don't think the cancer cell potential is too good to be true because I've heard many positive feedbacks from other people.
