Is there any relationship between Papaya and Cancer?

Welcome back to the new step of becoming healthy. 😀

As we all know our diet keeps us most healthy in life. Fruits and vegetables are important in daily diet. Papaya is also great fruit for the body.

Papaya is a fleshy fruit with a rapid pulp softening during ripening.

Dietary fiber are generally considered carbohydrates that are incompletely processed by human digestive enzymes but can provide health benefits, such as lowering risk of colorectal cancer ( cancer wich affects colon and rectum) development. Fruits and vegetables are rich in pectin, a soluble dietary fiber found in plant cell walls.

Many types of pectin, especially the modified ones have been associated with anti-cancer activity in both in vitro and in vivo studies, such as the reduction of cell proliferation, migration, adhesion and the induction of apoptosis. These anti-cancer activities were shown for modified pectins of citrus, apple, sugar beet and ginseng. Papaya pectin is more effective than found in citrus or sugar beet.

According to studies , Papaya pectin from different ripening stages induces death of cancer cells at different levels & papaya pectine affects interaction between cancer cells and extracellular matrix proteins.

Thus , yes there is a relationship between a ripe papaya and cancer…. Ripe papaya have anti-cancer properties.

Eat healthy. ☺ Stay healthy. ☺ Stay happy
