Ginger has proven itself to be amazing in the fight against cancer, in recent studies it has shown to be even more effective at killing cancer cells than some medications.
Ginger was found to reduce the size of a prostate tumor by 65% in one study at the Georgia State University. In addition to this, it is known to reduce inflammation and supply the body with antioxidants.
Another study published in PLoS showed that an ingredient found in ginger, 6-shogaol is better at beating cancer than certain mainstream cancer treatments such as chemotherapy when targeting breast cancer cells.
6-shogaol is so important as it has been found to be effective against cancer stem cells, which are known as ‘mother cells’. Although this part of the cancer only make up around 1 or 2 % of the tumor, they are notoriously hard to kill.
In addition to killing the cancer stem cells, this special component leaves the healthy cells alone, something which chemotherapy doesn’t do, making treatment easier on the patient.
Even the new cancer drug taxol was not found to be as effective against tumors as 6-shogaol, proving itself to be around 10,000 more powerful.
It has been noted that turmeric has amazing effect on certain cancer cells, and ginger, being it’s cousin, can also be just as useful.
More research needs to be carried out in the field, but these initial test are a step in the right direction to having a natural cancer cure which has none of the harmful side-effects that current cancer medications do.

No single herb threatens the pharmaceutical industry’s global monopoly as much as turmeric. Here’s why…
Turmeric has received a lot of attention in the past few years. The reason has everything to do with the power of social media to undercut traditional pharmaceutical industry controlled media channels, along with the reality that the available published literature that has accumulated on turmeric’s health benefits is astoundingly vast. The open access database MEDLINE, for instance, now contains over10,000 study abstracts on turmeric and/or its components, such as the polyphenol known as curcumin. Our intention at GreenMedInfo.com is to save you time looking through these thousands of studies by putting all the relevant ones to natural and integrative medicine in one spot. In the case of the burgeoning volume of turmeric and curcumin literature, that spot is our Turmeric Research dashboard…
