ENGVAR[edit]

I just noticed an edit to make the article more consistent in use of Caribbean English spelling. There's still a US English "tenderizer" though. It looks to me like the articles was started in US English in 2003, with the spelling "flavoring" (see here). US spelling was stable for several years, but was converted to Caribbean English in 2006 with this edit (though there were some back and forth edits over the spelling of flavo(u)r in the weeks preceding that edit). I don't really care if Caribbean English is used, but going by the "rules" it should probably be US English. Either way, it'd be good to add a banner advising which English variant should be used in this article. Plantdrew (talk) 23:48, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Anti-cancer effect[edit]

The article is wrong about the fact that there is no medical evidence that it is effective.. There is actually a lot of peer-reviewed reasearch confirming anti-cancer properties for this plant :

This[1]. Those sources are unreliable for any statements about therapeutic use; we need WP:MEDRS for that. Alexbrn (talk) 07:07, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

It seems that the studies could be included as, "Ethanol extracted from Annona muricata L. has been shown to kill cancer cells in vitro, and inhibit tumor growth in vivo in animal models, but has not been studied in humans, has not been approved for therapeutic use in the United States, and currently there is no medical evidence that consuming the fruit has any impact on any metric of health." If added that way it at least indicates it's being studied while expressly stating that it is not fully studied nor approved for medical use in the US. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2603:300D:302:9100:E437:303D:6F41:6298 (talk) 12:58, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

No because we need WP:MEDRS for any WP:Biomedical information. Alexbrn (talk) 13:04, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
