  • My brother has aggressive prostate cancer and will have it removed along with lymph nodes in a week. He was told about these leaves from the sour sop and has been making tea with them. I told him to stop taking it before surgery in case it’s a blood thinner which I read this online. He has no problem finding leaves or fruit since most Asian markets have the fruit but you can get anything online too. The problem is that I read that it can also give you Parkinson’s disease. I want to know what other side effects this plant has please. We heard it has cured cancer but there are no human trials or test or anything to prove this is true.
