Pawpaw sap

My brother was telling me about herbal medicine of pawpaw sap so I googled it and found this.

Its not easy to find pawpaw around here lately because of the drought. We used to have them coming up wild in the garden but not any more.
Does anyone have a herbal capsule they take? I am looking in iherb but most of it is just a dietary aid to digestion. I want the anti cancer properties of it.

    It used to be that you boiled the pawpaw leaves and drank that. It tasted awful and did nothing for Mum’s cancer.

    The extract does refer to a lack of clinical trials! When in doubt, it’s wise to check!

    @LibbyA That sounds ‘delightful’. When I was at school my home ec  teacher used to make us drink the water that we boiled the veggies in, yuk.
