WARNING: Cherimoya linked to Parkinsons Disease

caw_in_zn5April 4, 2012

Please be aware of research on ingestion of some Cherimoya family fruits and atypical Parkinsons' disease in Central America. Reference is on Wikipedia. Too much evidence of risk for me!

It's more the soursops and you have to eat it for quite a while. I've eaten several cherimoyas daily for a couple weeks at a time when I'm in a tropical region where they are in season and have never suffered any ill effects.
