Część #A: Informacje wprowadzające tej strony:


#A1. Jaki jest cel tej strony:

       The goal of this web page is to repeat various folklore claims regarding fruits, especially these ones which describe their healing capabilities. Note, however, that none of the claims repeated here were verified by me - I just repeat them as they come to my attention. Thus, some of these claims may be exaggerated and/or disseminated on purpose by producers of given fruits, to boost their sales and prices.
       It is also worth to notice, that internet is developing a "sub-culture of chain-emails". It depends on sending various "chain emails" to hundreds of people. Some of these emails contain outrageous claims, and their lack of merit can be detected at a first glance. Others are more puzzling and the possible close look at whatever they claim could be worth-while. These more puzzling chain emails I try to reproduce here.

Część #B: Papaja:


#B1. "Łańcuchowy email" na temat "papaja" krążący w internecie w lipcu 2011 roku:

Motto: 'Nawet jeśli weźmie się ten email "ze szczyptą soli", nie daje się zaprzeczyć że papaja jest bogata w najróżniejsze witaminy.'

       No need to cry about scarcity of blueberries, strawberries, etc in SINGAPORE . We have our wonderful papayas, pineapples, bananas, durians and mangoes are affordable. Papaya was the only studied food found to halt breast cancer
       Scientists studied 14 plant foods commonly consumed in Mexico to determine their ability to halt breast cancer cell growth. These included avocado, black sapote, fuava, mango, prickly pear cactus (nopal), pineapple, grapes, tomato, and papaya. They also evaluated beta-carotene, total plant phenolics, and garlic acid contents and antioxidant capacity. They found that only papaya had a significant effect on stopping breast cancer cell growth. (International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition, May)

Papaya is a store-house of cancer fighting lycopene:
       The intense orangey-pink color of papaya means it is chock full of cancer fighting carotenoids. Not only beta carotene, but lycopene is found in abundance. The construction of lycopene makes it highly reactive toward oxygen and free radicals.
       Scientists at the University of Illinois think this anti-oxidant activity contributes to its effectiveness as a cancer fighting agent. Epidemiological studies have indicated an inverse relationship between lycopene intake and prostate cancer risk. They showed that oral lycopene is highly bioavailable, accumulates in prostate tissue, and is localized in the nucleus of prostate epithelial cells.
       In addition to antioxidant activity, other experiments have indicated that lycopene induces cancer cell death, anti-metastatic activity, and the up-regulation of protective enzymes. Phase I and II studies have established the safety of lycopene supplementation. (Cancer Letter, October 8, 2008)
       Prostate cancer was the subject of a study in Australia that looked at 130 prostate cancer patients and 274 hospitalized controls . The scientists found that men who consumed the most lycopene-rich fruits and vegetables such as papaya were 82% less likely to have prostate cancer. In this study, green tea also exerted a powerful anti-cancer effect. When lycopene-rich foods were consumed with green tea, the combination was even more effective, an outcome the researchers credited to their synergy. ( Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2007)

Isothiocyanates found in papaya restore the cell cycle to eliminate cancer:
       Organo-sulfur compounds called isothiocyanates are found in papaya. In animal experiments, isothiocyanates protected against cancers of the breast, lung, colon pancreas, and prostate, as well as leukaemia, and they have the potential to prevent cancer in humans. Isothiocyanates have shown themselves capable of inhibiting both the formation and development of cancer cells through multiple pathways and mechanisms. (International Journal of Oncology), October, 2008)
       Researchers in Japan clarified the mechanisms of action in a type of isothiocyanate found in papaya known as BITC, that underlies the relationship between cell cycle regulation and appropriate cell death. When cancerous cells die on schedule, they are no longer a problem. The researchers established that BITC exerted cancer cell killing effects that were greater in the proliferating cells than in the quiescent cells. Cancer cells that are proliferating are much more dangerous than cancer cells that are in a state of dormancy. (Forum of Nutrition, 2009)

Enzymes from papaya digest proteins including those that protect tumors:
       The fruit and other parts of the papaya tree, also known as the paw-paw tree, contain papain and chymopapain, powerful proteolytic enzymes that facilitate chemical reactions in the body. They promote digestion by helping to break down proteins from food into amino acids that can be recombined to produce protein useable by humans. Proteolytic enzymes protect the body from inflammation and help heal burns. They do a good job of digesting unwanted scar tissue both on the skin and under its surface.
       Research has shown that the physical and mental health of people is highly dependent on their ability to produce proteins they can use effectively. However, as people age, they produce less of the enzymes needed to effectively digest proteins from food and free needed amino acids. They are left with excessive amounts of undigested protein which can lead to overgrowth of unwanted bacteria in the intestinal tract, and a lack of available amino acids.
       Eating papaya after a meal promotes digestion, and helps prevent bloating, gas production, and indigestion. It is quite helpful after antibiotic use to replenish friendly intestinal bacteria that were the casualties in the war against the unwanted bacteria. When the intestinal tract is well populated with friendly bacteria, the immune system is strengthened, and can better protect against flu and cancer.
       Being a proteolytic enzyme, papain is able to destroy intestinal parasites, which are composed mostly of protein. To rid the body of intestinal parasites, half a cup of papaya juice can be alternated each hour for twelve consecutive hours with the same amount of cucumber or green bean juice.
       Papaya contains fibrin, another useful compound not readily found in the plant kingdom. Fibrin reduces the risk of blood clots and improves the quality of blood cells, optimizing the ability of blood to flow through the circulatory system. Fibrin is also important in preventing stokes. Proteolytic enzymes containing fibrin are a good idea for long plane rides to minimize the potential of blood clots in the legs. People who sit at a desk all day might want to use proteolytic enzymes too.
       Proteolytic enzymes are able to digest and destroy the defense shields of viruses, tumors, allergens, yeasts, and various forms of fungus. Once the shield is destroyed, tumors and invading organisms are extremely vulnerable and easily taken care of by the immune system.
       Undigested proteins can penetrate the gut and wind up in the bloodstream where they are treated by the immune system as invaders. If too many undigested proteins are floating around, the immune system becomes overburdened and unable to attend to the other tasks it was meant to do. Proteolytic enzymes can digest these rogue proteins, freeing up the immune system.
       Let's ensure a slice of papaya every day in our diet. Papaya juice would be great.

Część #C: Cebula:


#C1. "Łańcuchowy email" na temat "cebuli" krążący w internecie w sierpniu 2011 roku:

Motto: "Jedno jabłko dziennie trzyma lekarza od nas daleko, jedna cebula dziennie trzyma każdego od nas daleko, jeden czosnek dziennie trzyma nawet Drakulę od nas daleko" (jest to znane angielskie powiedzenie-przysłowie, w oryginale stwierdzające, cytuję: "One apple a day keeps doctor away, one onion a day keeps everyone away, one garlic a day keeps even Dracula away" )

       In 1919. When the flu killed 40 million people, there was this doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it, and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer, and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy.

When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different, the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home (probably only two rooms back then).

The doctor couldn't believe it, and asked if he could have one of the onions, and place it under the microscope.

She gave him one, and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion.

It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore keeping the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in Arizona.

She said that several years ago, many of her employees were coming down with the flu, and so were many of her customers.

The next year, she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your home.

If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office, or under your desk, or even on top somewhere.

Try it and see what happens. We did it last year, and we never got the flu. If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better.

If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case.

Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on onions!

Now there is a P.S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who regularly contributes material to me on health issues.

She replied with this most interesting experience about onions: I don't know about the farmer’s story, but I do know that I contracted pneumonia, and needless to say I was very ill.

I came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion, put one end on a fork, and then place the forked end into an empty jar, placing the jar next to the sick patient at night.

It said the onion would be black in the morning from the germs.

Sure enough, it happened just like that. The onion was a mess, and I began to feel better.

Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago.

#C2.1. Moje uwagi na temat powyższego "łańcuchowego emaila" o "cebuli":

       Already the first paragraph hit me strongly - namely, the picture of a doctor from 1919, who used a primitive optical microscope available at that time, and still managed to see flu viruses on the onion, that are hardly detectable with present "electron microscopes". How he did it? A similar reservation I have towards the final description concerning an onion end kept on a fork throughout the night. Actually, ends of any fruits, e.g. tomatoes, cucumbers, plums, etc., not just onions, kept in jars on forks throughout an entire night, in the morning would become "a mess" full of germs.
       Anyway, I am NOT to verify the "email-folklore" story, but to simply repeat it. So even if we take it with a "pinch of salt", we must remember that onions are sources of numerous folklore medicines - for example see item #C3 on the totaliztic web page named healing.htm.

Część #E: Podsumowanie, oraz informacje końcowe tej strony:


#E1. Podsumowanie tej strony:

       Strona ta dostarcza przykłady stwierdzeń jakimi folklory różnych narodów opisują swoje owoce. Ja nie mam możności aby sprawdzić poprawność owych stwierdzeń (wszakże NIE jestem lekarzem) - stąd jedynie powtarzam je tutaj. Pozostaje więc kwestią czytelnika aby wyrobić sobie własne zdanie na temat ich ważności i merytu.
       Odnotuj, że tropikalne owoce omawiane na niniejszej stronie są dokładniej opisane (i zilustrowane) na stronie o nazwie fruit_pl.htm.

#E2. Emaile i dane kontaktowe autora tej strony:

       Aktualne adresy emailowe autora tej strony, tj. oficjalnie dra inż. Jana Pająka, zaś kurtuazyjnie Prof. dra inż. Jana Pająka, pod jakie można wysyłać ewentualne uwagi, zapytania, lub odpowiedzi na zadane tu pytania, podane są na stronie internetowej o mnie (dr inż. Jan Pająk). Tam również dostępne są pozostałe powszechnie używane dane kontaktowe do autora tej strony.
       Prawo autora do używania kurtuazyjnego tytułu "Profesor" wynika ze zwyczaju iż "z profesorami jest jak z generałami", znaczy raz profesor, zawsze już profesor. Z kolei w swojej karierze naukowej autor tej strony był profesorem aż na 4-ch odmiennych uniwersytetach, tj. na 3-ch z nich był tzw. "Associate Professor" w hierarchii uczelnianej bazowanej na angielskim systemie uczelnianym (w okresie od 1 września 1992 roku, do 31 października 1998 roku) - który to Zachodni tytuł stanowi odpowiednik "profesora nadzwyczajnego" na polskich uczelniach. Z kolei na jednym uniwersytecie autor był (Full) "Professor" (od 1 marca 2007 roku do 31 grudnia 2007 roku - tj. na ostatnim miejscu pracy z naukowej kariery autora) który to tytuł jest odpowiednikiem pełnego "profesora zwyczajnego" z polskich uczelni.
       Proszę też odnotować, że z powodu mojego chronicznego deficytu czasu, ja bardzo niechętnie odpowiadam na emaile, które zawierają TYLKO wykonawczo czasochłonne prośby, jednocześnie zaś dokumentują zupełną ignorancję ich autora w tematyce którą ja badam.

#E3. Jak dzięki stronie "skorowidz.htm" daje się znaleźć totaliztyczne opisy interesujących nas tematów:

       Cały szereg tematów równie interesujących jak te z niniejszej strony, też omówionych zostało pod kątem unikalnym dla filozofii totalizmu.
