Papaya was the only studied food found to halt breast cancer

Scientists studied 14 plant foods commonly consumed in Mexico to determine their ability to halt breast cancer cell growth.

These included avocado, black sapote, guava, mango, prickly pear cactus (nopal), pineapple, grapes, tomato, and papaya.

They also evaluated beta-carotene, total plant phenolics, and gallic acid contents and antioxidant capacity.

They found that only papaya had a significant effect on stopping breast cancer cell growth.

(International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition, May)

Papaya is a store-house of cancer fighting lycopene

The intense orangey-pink color of papaya means it is chock full of cancer fighting carotenoids.

Not only beta carotene, but lycopene is found in abundance. The construction of lycopene makes it highly reactive

toward oxygen and free radicals.

Scientists at the University of Illinois think this anti-oxidant activity contributes to its effectiveness as a cancer

fighting agent. Epidemiological studies have indicated an inverse relationship between lycopene intake and prostate

cancer risk. They showed that oral lycopene is highly bioavailable, accumulates in prostate tissue,

and is localized in the nucleus of prostate epithelial cells.

In addition to antioxidant activity, other experiments have indicated that lycopene induces cancer cell death,

anti-metastatic activity, and the up-regulation of protective enzymes.

Phase I and II studies have established the safety of lycopene supplementation.

(Cancer Letter, October 8, 2008)

Prostate cancer was the subject of a study in Australia that looked at 130 prostate cancer patients and

274 hospitalized controls. The scientists found that men who consumed the most lycopene-rich fruits and

vegetables such as papaya were 82% less likely to have prostate cancer. In this study, green tea also exerted

a powerful anti-cancer effect. When lycopene-rich foods were consumed with green tea, the combination

was even more effective, an outcome the researchers credited to their synergy.

( Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2007)

Isothiocyanates found in papaya restore the cell cycle to eliminate cancer

Organo-sulfur compounds called isothiocyanates are found in papaya. In animal experiments, isothiocyanates

protected against cancers of the breast, lung, colon pancreas, and prostate, as well as leukemia,

and they have the potential to prevent cancer in humans. Isothiocyanates have shown themselves capable

of inhibiting both the formation and development of cancer cells through multiple pathways and mechanisms.

(International Journal of Oncology), October, 2008)

Researchers in Japan clarified the mechanisms of action in a type of isothiocyanate found in papaya known as BITC,

that underlies the relationship between cell cycle regulation and appropriate cell death.

When cancerous cells die on schedule, they are no longer a problem.

The researchers established that BITC exerted cancer cell killing effects that were greater in the proliferating

cells than in the quiescent cells. Cancer cells that are proliferating are much more dangerous than cancer

cells that are in a state of dormancy. (Forum of Nutrition, 2009)

Enzymes from papaya digest proteins including those that protect tumors

The fruit and other parts of the papaya tree, also known as the paw paw tree, contain papain and chymopapain,

powerful proteolytic enzymes that facilitate chemical reactions in the body.

They promote digestion by helping to break down proteins from food into amino acids that can be recombined

to produce protein useable by humans.

Proteolytic enzymes protect the body from inflammation and help heal burns.

They do a good job of digesting unwanted scar tissue both on the skin and under its surface.

Research has shown that the physical and mental health of people is highly dependent on their ability to produce

proteins they can use effectively. However, as people age, they produce less of the enzymes needed to

effectively digest proteins from food and free needed amino acids.

They are left with excessive amounts of undigested protein which can lead to overgrowth of unwanted

bacteria in the intestinal tract, and a lack of available amino acids.

Eating papaya after a meal promotes digestion, and helps prevent bloating, gas production, and indigestion.

It is quite helpful after antibiotic use to replenish friendly intestinal bacteria that were the casualties in the war

against the unwanted bacteria. When the intestinal tract is well populated with friendly bacteria,

the immune system is strengthened, and can better protect against flu and cancer.

Being a proteolytic enzyme, papain is able to destroy intestinal parasites, which are composed mostly of protein.

To rid the body of intestinal parasites, half a cup of papaya juice can be alternated each hour for twelve

consecutive hours with the same amount of cucumber or green bean juice.

Papaya contains fibrin, another useful compound not readily found in the plant kingdom.

Fibrin reduces the risk of blood clots and improves the quality of blood cells, optimizing the ability of

blood to flow through the circulatory system.

Fibrin is also important in preventing strokes.

Proteolytic enzymes containing fibrin are a good idea for long plane rides to minimize the potential of blood clots in the legs.

People who sit at a desk all day might want to use proteolytic enzymes too.

Proteolytic enzymes are able to digest and destroy the defense shields of viruses, tumors, allergens, yeasts,

and various forms of fungus. Once the shield is destroyed, tumors and invading organisms are extremely

vulnerable and easily taken care of by the immune system.

Undigested proteins can penetrate the gut and wind up in the bloodstream where they are treated by the

immune system as invaders. If too many undigested proteins are floating around, the immune system

becomes overburdened and unable to attend to the other tasks it was meant to do.

Proteolytic enzymes can digest these rogue proteins, freeing up the immune system.

Let's ensure a slice of papaya every day in our diet.

Papaya juice will be great too!

Hi Angie_lv
I love all nuts eat alot mixed nuts now and almost have made switch to become vegitarian.
Still eat some fish and chicken, but alot more of my veggies now.
Yes beta carotene which is carrots and also found in the Papaya juice at a higher rate.
All berries are very good with oxidizing our blood.

I been into diet alot from my heart troubles and trying reverse damage done in my veins.
I was trying see if i had mention about what i found about margerin you know butter subsitutes.
So many brands being used. But all have hydrogenation or say partially hydrogenized or just hydrogenized. But, none of the reports says why its bad just that it is. My wife found a chemist who said under microscpe its one property away from plastic and has two properties of paint to it. And just think we put that stuff in us everytime we eat it. Its in so many things.Whipped creams which are artifical and dipps we use with chips and found in some cream cheeses. Its in so many things even peanutbutter.

I have become avid lable reader.I refuse put that stuff into body. My doctors say its why i have that large clog in my arteries near my heart. PLease let my life be a warning to everyone please change how we all eat.Please its not good to live with heart disorders believe me, No-one wants life i have now.

Lets all eat lots of papaya. Thanks Angela!

Etymology / Definition of Masturbation The word masturbation is derived from the Greek word mezea ('penises') and the Latin verb masturbare ('to defile by hand or to disturb by hand'). Masturbation can be defined as deliberate self stimulation of ones genitals. As the etymology of the word suggests, hands are generally used to arouse the sexual organs which may result in orgasm. Men may fondle or stroke their penis with their hand or touch other erroneous zones (like the scrotum or anus). Women often rub the vulva, or gently stroke the clitoris and the minor lips (labia minora). Some women simultaneously play with the nipples of their breasts. Instead of using their hands, both males and females may also rub their genitals against some object, such as a pillow. Some females can reach orgasm by riding a bicycle or a horse. Masturbation commonly refers to sexual activities done alone (autoeroticism), but can be a sexual act between people. This is referred to as mutual masturbation, where one person stimulates their own genitals or their partners. Many people find the sight of their partner masturbating highly erotic. visit


There are many special masturbation aids on the market. The most common of these is the artificial penis, also known as a dildo (from the Italian diletto - "delight"). Dildos can be made of wood, rubber, plastic or glass. Vibrators are also popular sex toys. They are like dildos, but battery powered or electric. Great for masturbation as well as partner sex play. Babeland have a great selection of sex toys. Watching pornography, reading erotica or cultivating sexual fantasies are common aids to masturbate. Humans are not the only animals to masturbate. Many other mammals have been known to masturbate in the wild and in captivity. Female Masturbation Techniques There are many different techniques women may employ to masturbate. Through experimentation, a personal preference may be found which gives that particular woman the most exquisite pleasure. Some common techniques are: *Inserting one or more fingers into the vagina to stroke the frontal wall of the vagina where the g-spot is located. * Stroking the clitoris and / or massaging the breasts. * In the bathtub or shower, using warm running water to stimulate the clitoris. * Lying face down and straddling a pillow (or something similar) and rubbing the vulva and clitoris against it. * Standing up, the corner of an item of furniture, or even a washing machine, can be used to stimulate the genitals. * Some women can orgasm by crossing their legs tightly and clenching the pelvic or leg muscles, which creates pressure and enhances blood flow to the genitals. Techniques, Sexual Response & Multiple Orgasms From the website: 'Women commonly masturbate by rubbing or applying pressure to the clitoris, mons, lips of the vagina, or some combination of these areas. The methods by which they do this varies greatly. Fingers or other devices may be used to rub the shaft of the clitoris in an up-and-down motion on either or both sides, or the shaft may be rubbed in a circular fashion. The vaginal lips may be gently pulled; this movement of the inner lips causes the loose skin covering the clitoris to move back and forth, creating a pleasurable sensation. Because the glans of the clitoris is highly sensitive, prolonged stimulation usually becomes irritating, and thus it is not often used as the focus of masturbation. Relatively few women (some sexologists estimate about 20%) insert anything into their vaginas while masturbating. Those who do usually insert just barely into the opening. However, some women completely insert fingers, dildos, vibrators, and other objects, such as bananas and cucumbers, during masturbation. All these methods may involve the use of various kinds of lubricants, and many women stimulate their breasts while stimulating their genitals. Some women use washcloths, clothing, pillows, furs, silks, or other such devices to aid their stimulation. Most women prefer lying on their backs, but some prefer standing or sitting. While standing or sitting, a woman may rub against certain objects, such as doorknobs, dresser drawer pulls, the edge of chairs, or bedposts. The woman may cross her legs and increase the pressure on her genitals by contracting her lower abdominal, gluteal, and thigh muscles. Water massages may be used. Some women derive sexual stimulation while riding a bicycle or a horse, activities that were at one time forbidden to women for that very reason. Female sexual response to masturbation is about the same as for males. Some women have reported orgasm 30 seconds from the start of self-stimulation, while the usual time is a little less than four minutes. Because of a woman's ability to have multiple orgasms, she may maintain her threshold of orgasm far longer than a man. ... When mutual masturbation is employed during intercourse, it may greatly enhance sexual response; some women report that they receive more intense pleasure from masturbation either by themselves or by their partner than they do from coitus, especially if their partner is a male who has only slight potency. This is because the clitoris receives little direct stimulation during pelvic thrusting in the missionary position.'

Definition of Sexual Fetish
First described by Sigmund Freud in 1887, sexual fetishism is a form of paraphilia where the object of affection is a specific inanimate object. 

A fetish is an object, not a body part. According to psychology or psychiatric terminology there is no such thing as a 'foot fetish'. That is called a partialism. This is when a part of the body is an extremely important part to achieve sexual arousal. A shoe though, could be a fetish.

A fetish is when a person is sexually aroused by a specific object or objects and is generally unable to achieve sexual satisfaction without that object being present.

What makes a fetish 'fetishism' by definition is that it interferes with your life. It's not just something you like to do, but something you have to do. In other words, there is no other way to have an orgasm except with a shoe, bra or panties present, or whatever that person is into.
