Pakistan has the highest ratio of breast cancer patients in Asia as around 40,000 women die every year due to this fatal disease. Necessary cost is very high for healing it, but all is not without risk. The effects of chemotherapy are very haunting in all cancer patients.

Sour sop (Annona muricata) is a broadleaf, flowering, evergreen tree native to Mexico, Cuba and Brazil. Also called Prickly Apple Pear in English, Guanabana in Spanish and Graviola in Brazil. The tree grows quickly, often producing its first crop within 3–5 years from seedling. The fruit is heart-shaped to oval, ranging in size from a few inches to over 1 foot in length. Often the fruit is lopsided, possibly due to poor pollination. The fruit is reported to weigh as much as 15 pounds. Sub acidic to sweet in taste pulp is white that is eaten out of hand or more commonly used to make fruit drinks, sorbets and ice cream. Once harvested, the fruit softens in 4–7 days and has a shelf life of another 3–5 days. There are commercial plantings in the Philippines, Mexico and South America. Nutritionally, the fruit is high in carbohydrates, particularly fructose. The fruit also contains significant amounts of vitamin C, vitamin B1, and vitamin B2.
