GOD'S FRUIT: PAPAYA PREVENTS PROSTATE CANCER
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?

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.
