American Cancer Society Funded Research Sixty Years Ago on Papaya Leaf Enzyme

20130702-100037.jpg

Back in 1954 when we only had typewriters, a grad student at the University of Utah named Joe R. Kimmel typed the results of his research on papain. Joe’s research on the predominant cancer-fighting enzyme in the papaya leaf (papain) was funded by the American Cancer Society. After hearing about this archive, the Director of the Julia Ruffin Project, Jill Nicole Gallo said, “my grandparents could have possibly lived longer if this research was made public”.

The Julia Ruffin Project is chartered to promote the health benefits of papaya leaf tea and focuses on its effect against cancer. Ms Gallo works a plan and a team that will make public these effects instead of burying the research of hardworking researchers in library archives. The Project is setting up to grow potent young leaves in Jamaica.
