A very useful fruit

I did not mean to write on this topic. I wanted to continue on the healthy foods that I had started. Something interesting happened and so I am pitching thi blog in.

Some of you may know that I am in Vietnam enjoying a good holiday with my daughter’s family.

Some of you may also know that I have a linkage in the past with Srilanka. The home where we lived when I was a child was in a big campus. It had some fruit trees growing wildly. We enjoyed eating that fruit.

That fruit is freely available in the markets of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). So I could not resist the temptation to eat the fruit of my childhood days. The fruit is shown below.

This fruit is called as soursop in English.

This fruit is available in Gudalur of Tamilnadu, India, during this season.

One of the stated benefits of this fruit is that it prevents cancer. I have no hesitation in consuming any natural food that is supposed to prevent cancer without any attempt at trying to prove.

Once we complete the foods good for the heart, we will look at some of the foods stated to prevent cancer.

All the very best.
