Our Hero, Dr. Edward Howell, provided the science foundation to understand why papaya leaf tea has effect against cancer. Dr. Howell showed in the lab by experiment after experiment the effects of food enzymes on digestion and health. The enzyme in the papaya leaf, papain, is a protein dissolving enzyme that can eat away the protein or fibrous coating around cancer cells, then allowing your body to kill the cancer. The protease (protein eating enzyme) papain is accompanied by co-enzymes in the leaf that are critical for their work.
We celebrate the late Dr. Howell and his life work.
