God had prepared fruits of the tree as food for sustenance. He made everything ready for man to survive on this earth. There is nothing missing in the beautiful world that He created for man to live in. Every thing is complete for man's survival.

God declared in Genesis 1:29, "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; for you it shall be for meat." (vs. 31) And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold it was very good."

The perfect world that God made for man was sullied because Man sinned and disobeyed against God. Everything changed when man sinned against the commandment of God. In the beginning, man survived on herbs and fruits. After the flood of Noah's days, he was allowed to consume meat. The Edenic days had disappeared when man sinned and rebelled against God, the creator of his world. It took a long time before man would redeem himself and return to the fold of God.

In the 21st century, diseases abound and man is trying to find remedies to combat this and turning to alternative means to fight diseases. A number of herbs, fruits and vegetables have been found to be beneficial in combating diseases like cancer, heart diseases, and other diseases.

Treatment of Prostate Cancer varies depending on the stage of the cancer (i.e., spread) and may include surgical removal, radiation, chemotherapy, hormonal manipulation or a combination of these treatments.


Interesting recent research shows that avocado seems to be a potent warrior in the fight against prostate cancer. Avocados contain the highest amount of the carotenoid lutein of all commonly eaten fruits. In addition, they contain related carotenoids, including zeaxanthin, alpha-carotene, and beta-carotene, as well as significant amounts of vitamin E. A very recent study showed that an extract of avocado containing these carotenoids and tocopherols inhibited the growth of prostate cancer cells. Interestingly, when researchers used lutein alone, the cancer cells were unaffected, thus demonstrating once again that it's the synergy of health-promoting nutrients in whole foods that makes the difference.


While there are more than 500 varieties of avocados grown worldwide, Hass avocados are the most readily available at supermarkets nationwide. Similar research has not been conducted on other varieties of avocados.

The findings are published online in the journal Seminars in Cancer Biology .

“As far as we know, this is the first study of avocados and oral cancer. “We think these phytochemicals either stop the growth of precancerous cells in the body or they kill the precancerous cells without affecting normal cells. Our study focuses on oral cancer, but the findings might have implications for other types of cancer."

Lead author Steven M. D'Ambrosio, a member of the molecular carcinogenesis and chemoprevention program at Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Centre, also wrote an accompanying editorial for the journal, discussing the cancer-fighting potential of fruits and vegetables.

Studies have long associated the consumption of fruits and vegetables with a reduced risk for various types of human cancer. The protective effect is attributed to the high levels of phytonutrients or phytochemicals – plant compounds thought to have health-protecting qualities – that are often found in dark colored fruits and vegetables.

“As far as we know, this is the first study of avocados and oral cancer,” says D'Ambrosio. “We think these phytochemicals either stop the growth of precancerous cells in the body or they kill the precancerous cells without affecting normal cells. Our study focuses on oral cancer, but the findings might have implications for other types of cancer. These are preliminary findings, and more research is needed.”

D'Ambrosio found that phytochemicals extracted from avocados target multiple signaling pathways and increase the amount of reactive oxygen within the cells, leading to cell death in pre-cancerous cell lines. But the phytochemicals did not harm normal cells.


Avocado has been found to be beneficial in prostate and oral cancer. See below for diabetes control from California Office of Minority Health.

Irvine, CA--(HISPANIC PR WIRE)--September 2, 2004--Diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death in the Hispanic community, according to the Office of Minority Health. However, individuals can combat diabetes by maintaining a healthy weight, active lifestyle and nutritious eating habits (1). California avocados are a nutrient-dense food source and a cultural favorite that can be part of a healthy diet for managing diabetes.

Over 10 percent of the Hispanic population suffers from diabetes..

(2). Further findings from the October 2003 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) project that Hispanics born in 2000 have a nearly 1 in 2 risk of developing diabetes during their lifetime, which translates into a 1.5 times higher risk than non-Latino whites.

Avocados also offer vitamin E that helps neutralize free radicals, folate that may lower homocysteine levels in the blood, and fiber that helps regulate blood sugar levels. All of these functions offer important benefits for people with diabetes. Ounce-per-ounce, avocados rank highest in monunsaturated fat, vitamin E, folate, potassium, magnesium, lutein, beta-sitosterol and glutathione, compared to other commonly eaten fruits. According to the Food and Drug Administration, diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer and other chronic diseases. California avocados are included in the National cancer Institiute’s 5 A Day program.

We have seen how the Almighty Lord God of the universe has prepared herbs, vegetables and fruits of various kinds to sustain us before He created Man. If only we trust and obey Him, we will not get into trouble with our life and not have so many kinds of diseases to combat. Avocado is only one of many fruits that are good for our health. There are still many undiscovered fruits that lead us to good health. May God open our eyes to discover the secrets of the plants and herbs. All glory to God.

Great news for you.

iekcir on August 04, 2014:

i had prostate problem and after eating avocado (a few months ago) for 3 weeks (after i heard its healing properties), i was miraculously cured (my psa came to its lowest normal level and my prostate gland was reduced into its normal size. my doctor who prescribed to me different medicines in the past 3 years could not believe until he saw the ultra sound results. now, i do not have to take those expensive medicines which can have side effects, however, i still monitor my psa (prostate test).

Glad to meet a son of God who believes in His almighty power. In Genesis 1:29, it is stated: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

KelKel on June 18, 2014:


Im a son of God as well and strongly believe in his almighty power to create all things fruits/veggies for our own cures i mean many years ago science was not as evolved as it is now and im pretty sure Adam and Eve cured Cain and Abel and the rest of their children with natural herbs due to no docs around... Btw about the avocado its amazing how we understatimate the seed which its a GREAT antioxidant helps to burn fat and the prostrate and many more benefits...

What to do with the avocado seed is TEA: cut the seed and boil it and for every half you can make a cup of tea...

Thanks Brother Hope To See You In Heaven!

May God Bless You And Your Family

Thanks for liking the article. God is a spirit and has no form. So His skin could not be white, black or any colour. I do not believe in priests who molesting kids daily. Sorry you do not believe in God.

Jason on September 02, 2012:

Like the info. Do not like so much God chit chat. In the bible God killed around a million people. The Devil killed 8 people. Tell me why you worship God again? With quotes such as, "Only God can help you"? How does he or she help when nobody has ever seen him? I suppose you God is white skin coloured. I really wish people would just wake up and stop believing in such a warped religion. You do know that preists are molesting kids daily right? Religion was created to control the masses, can't you see this?

einron (author) from Toronto, Ontario, CANADA on December 14, 2011:

Agree with the thoughts that God has provided us with everything for survival.

I have written an article on graviola or what other countries called "soursop" on cancer, and other articles on food and cancer.


Andelthedon from St. Lucia on December 13, 2011:

I strongly believe that God has provided man with everything necessary for survival. We depend to highly on modern medicine to address our health issues. Great info on avocados I was unaware of its ability in terms of cancer prevention. I have been aware of another fruit called soursop and I would highly recommend anyone to use it for the purpose of cancer prevention and possibly even cure.

Avocado cures psycosis

Atheist suffering from evolution psycosis, that humen is product of evolution not creation must eat avocado .







even he was not aware of it.

why you climb himalaya,cross atlantic or arctic poles,

you must be searching something........what buddah was searchin under a was only God......even he was not aware of it

new philosophy ....theory like evolution will fade one another....

until humanity reach a conclusion........that is GOD ALMIGHTY.

Einstein said: Time is only illusion. .

There is no difference between the past and the future .The present is only an illusion.

Evolution has no meaning without time....our perception of change in nature is not caused by Time.




The whole evolution theory succumb in concept of time....


Time is total illusion....a relative term of motion or events taking place in nature.......

TIME IS NOT ACTUAL CAUSE of changes in nature (evolution)

Without water and electricity or oxygen life will evolution will stop

without backing CAUSE ...evolution itself need a GOD.


evolution itself need a backing power,a God,without water evolution will stop.....time/evolution cannot change equation of water h20

Praise God for His goodness! If only more people would believe in eating natural foods, fruits, etc.

Murrells Inlet SC dentist on December 06, 2010:

Avocado has a lot of benefits. We're so thankful that god gives us nutritional foods that would help cure different kinds of sickness, and they also serve as the protectors of our body. So we should appreciate these blessings by taking or eating them regularly.

einron (author) from Toronto, Ontario, CANADA on November 17, 2010:


Thanks for being objective. A good thing cannot become bad because your opponent likes it.

Atheist on November 16, 2010:

Enron, skeptik and others,

I am an atheist however I do not think that Enrons belief should be rediculed. Even though I do agree with what Skeptik says re God, as an atheist one must show respect to those who have other beliefs.

Main reason for nmy comments are some logical errors from Skeptik. Just because Enron believes that God created AQvocados and asparagus (another veg with cancer healing properties, does NOT make avacado useless. We know that avocado and other vegs have been evolving over an extremely long period, before the birth of the God of the sons of Abraham, and nature does contain cures for many many deceases. So, u all atheists who are offended by Enron's belives on God, pl do not miss out the important part, that there are health foods and some of them can at least help if not cure even serious deceases like some forms of cancer.

I have prostate cancer in initial stage. Have just started treatment. I see no harm in trying asparagus and avacado and if I see signi8ficant progress, I will certainly share with all. Atheists are humanists and they believe in helping others. Skeptik, I am an extremely convinced atheist, however I see no reason to mock Enron's believes. I for one would like to thank Enron for providing info on avacado... however I am not likely to thank god for providing it. Of course, Skeptik, I have no right to criticize yr choice of words... I have stated my views on yr remarks.

God created man to have freewill in his actions. The result is the consequence of his action. He can do good or evil.

A man is motivated in his heart in what he does. Man is created in the image of God just as God created Adam and Eve. BUT, they obeyed the devil rather than God.

You were created good in the eyes of the Lord, but influenced by your parents' upbringin, and influence of friends, surrounding, etc, you grew up to be what you are today.

I pray for you. Search your heart.

skeptik on August 31, 2009:

Avocadoes are great, almost everything in Nature, is great!

I said, Nature, because thats all it is! Whe you brain-washed sheep keep bringing this imaginary being in, I sigh!!

Most people, including many of you, are cured, in Hospitals,

bt doctorS, by SCIENCE!! 'GOD' never cured anyone, never

helped anyone who 'prayed' till the cows came home! Which

GOD gave us the avocados and all the other things and ccreatures(which have been proven by science and fossile bones to be millions and millions of years old), again, which GOD, the one that most you think he made teh earth ..5000 years ago(avocados have been here for 20 000 years) and that the earth is flat? What GOD, you nincompoos?

Nobody knows how we got here, even the scientists are, but at least science proved a lot of things

right! GOD, Nothing! 'His' book, the Bible, told us that

the earth will end, Apolcalism, at least 30 times in the past 2000 years! WE are still here!! What is that telling you about your lying GOD? Your 'GOD; instead of helping you, "HE' kills you bt millions every year, in floods, earth quakes, vocano eruption, hurricanes, etc..maybe 3-4

atheist die too, by accident, vacationing!! mostly,you,

the believers! What GOD is that that kills you lie rats?

Or maybe is not, GOD maybe is Nature, the it has been from

the begining, before life and people existed: The same violents changes in the earth atmosphere and underground!

GOd has nothing to do with anything, God doesnt make earthquakes, hurricanes, or avocados!! Something left all this for us, but surely wasnt a 6' tall old man with a white beard, living on top of the clouds! If you ever flew

in a plane(onother science product!!) ober the clouds, you

know hes not there!!! YOu might feel insulted, Im dont care, I wrote facts, not fantasy, like you! You can check it

out!!! OH, by the way, the Vatican is the most genocidal criminal organisation of all time: They ordered the killing of over half a billion people!!!!!! in the past 1500 years!

Your GOD/religion will destroy this planet! Watch TV what is doing everyday! Not the ..atheists! Do you know what the atheists are doing, my oblivious believers? Not only they dont kill anyone but they've invented this beautiful medium

for you to post your imaginary dreams! They've invented the phone, the car, the Tv,they save your life in hospitals(yeah, my hatefull, relgious/republican-some racists freinds, your lives has been saved milliond of time by the ...jewish you 'hate' so much for 'killing' Jesus!! well,

the truth about that is different, but thats onother story!

And you think the avocado will fix your problems? YOur problems are not..physsical!!

Over here we also refer to avocado as butter fruit. We usually add milk and sugar and consume it as a dessert.

At one time there was speculation that avocados increase the Low Density Lipo-protine count, later on it was proven otherwise.

Anyways, thanks for the valuable information.
