A study published in the European Journal of Medicinal Plants recently concluded that papayas may be a delicious and natural way to prevent brain damage caused by cadmium toxicity. Cadmium is a known carcinogen and neurotoxin. In point of fact, this specific heavy metal is notorious for intensifying oxidative damage in the nervous system, thereby increasing one’s risk of various diseases and illnesses, particularly those related to the brain.
It was concluded that papaya displays excellent antioxidant and detoxification properties. These prove to be advantageous for anyone who may be at risk of a cadmium-induced brain disease.
