USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 17 (2004)

Nutrition Note: All values are for 100 grams (3.52 ounces) and for raw fresh fruits or vegetables. The longer you store or cook your products the more nutritional value is lost, so if you need to cook do it short and fast and always use fresh products. Also If   you have special needs or conditions make sure you consult with your doctor or nutritionist.

AFP reports here at Yahoo News: MIAMI  – Researchers said Tuesday that papaya leaf extract and its tea have dramatic cancer-fighting properties against a broad range of tumors, backing a belief held in a number of folk traditions.
