God created everything that is good on the earth. He does not discriminate one herb or fruit from another. Each type has its own use and therefore is good for all human beings.

God said in the book of Genesis 1:11,12 that what He created on the earth like grass, herb or fruit trees are good and God was well pleased with His creation.

However, Christopher Columbus saw papaya as the fruit of the angels. Angels are spirit, but do they eat food?



The common names for Papaya are Papaw or Paw Paw (Australia), Mamao (Brazil).

Origin: The papaya is believed to be native to southern Mexico and neighboring Central America. It is now grown in every tropical and subtropical countries.

Fruit: There are two types of papayas, Hawaiian and Mexican. The Hawaiian varieties are sold commonly in supermarkets. They generally weigh about 1 pound and have yellow skin when ripe. The flesh is bright orange or pinkish, depending on variety, with small black seeds in the center.

Women in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the West Indies have long used green papaya as a remedy for abortion or to prevent pregnancies so their children are not born into slavery.

Papaya and Green Tea Team Up to Prevent Prostate Cancer

Choosing to regularly eat lycopene-rich fruits, such as papaya, and drink green tea may greatly reduce a man's risk of developing prostate cancer, suggests research published the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition (Jian L, Lee AH, et al.)

In this case-control study involving 130 prostate cancer patients and 274 hospital controls, men drinking the most green tea were found to have an 86% reduced risk of prostate cancer compared, to those drinking the least.

A similar inverse association was found between the men's consumption of lycopene-rich fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, apricots, pink grapefruit, watermelon, papaya, and guava. Men who most frequently enjoyed these foods were 82% less likely to have prostate cancer compared to those consuming the least lycopene-rich foods.

Regular consumption of both green tea and foods rich in lycopene resulted in a synergistic protective effect, stronger than the protection afforded by either, the researchers also noted.

Protection against Macular Degeneration

Your mother may have told you carrots would keep your eyes bright as a child, but as an adult, it looks like fruit is even more important for keeping your sight. Data reported in a study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology indicates that eating 3 or more servings of fruit per day may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in older adults, by 36%, compared to persons who consume less than 1.5 servings of fruit daily. In this study, which involved over 110,000 women and men.
