Score: 80/100 (8.0 out of 10)
David Soh Poh Huat's may be on to something in terms of the benefits of soursop leaves, something that the grand majority of the public isn't aware of.
David's heart is certainly in the right place, and we love and admire his quest to help people who are suffering from cancer and other life-threatening ailments. In his previous book, Care Giving Gift of Unconditional Love, it was clear that David had dedicated his life to helping as many people suffering from these diseases and ailments as possible.
This book also comes from a place of love, dedicated to a sister to died from cancer yet fought a valiant and long battle against it.
It's incredibly short, brief, and oddly specific, similar to David's previous book. Also, similar to David's previous book, it isn't written particularly well.
English is certainly not David's first language, and it surely shows from time to time. However, it's actually not too difficult to understand what he is trying to communicate.
Ultimately, David is advocating for the use of soursop leaves from soursop fruits to fight cancer, particularly when used in the form of tea. Whenever someone comes up with something claiming it to be a cure or remedy, our BS/quackery radar automatically gets raised. We're not new to herbal supplements or “special foods” being advocated as some sort of panacea. St. John's Wart, garcinia cambogia, apple cider vinegar, and green tea are some popular examples.
However, believe it or not, there is some research and science backing the benefits of soursop leaves in fighting cancer, unfortunately, most of the research is on mice (not humans) or on cultures. According to what we found on cancercenter.com, a 1997 study published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry found that soursop compounds were even more effective at destroying breast cancer cells than chemotherapy. However, this was in vitro (essentially in a test tube). In other words, it was performed outside the human body.
Perhaps the most cited example is the 2016 study published in Scientific Reports that showed anticancer properties of the compound versus prostate cancer cells. However, this study was performed on mice.
With all that said, it's frustrating to know that a treatment for cancer—one of the most deadly, destructive, and devastating of all diseases—may exist, yet most of the public is left blind or unaware of it. Could you imagine if this could help some sufferers? Could you imagine if it could save lives? Could you imagine if it could provide some hope and/or comfort?
Perhaps the most valuable part of this book are some of the anecdotal case studies. There are about a half-dozen of them, all detailing different ways in which the use of soursop leaves improved markers for cancer. Some of these improvements were achieved in a month and a half. Some of these improvements came in just five days!
For bringing this impressive and promising supplement into the public light, we are awarding this book an 8.0 out of 10. Check it out on Amazon!
