Ginger has been used by traditional medicine as a super herb remedy to treat inflammation, nausea and many other ailments. But, recently the American Association for Cancer Research revealed that in every single instance where ginger powder was used to treat cancer cells, they all died as a result of being exposed to the compound. This is called apoptosis (cancer cell suicide.) in medical terminology. When ginger is present, the cells even attack one another, which is called as ‘autophagy’.

Recent studies like this have thrown light towards ginger being a remedy against ovarian and prostate cancer. What is more striking is ginger has no toxicity when consumed even in high doses, and does not cause people to endure the very uncomfortable side effects of chemotherapy and other radiation treatments. The American Cancer Society admits that more than 15% of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and more than 20,000 American women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year. Many of these cases can be helped with ginger root as a natural remedy.

Ginger’s ability to fight Ovarian Cancer:

“Ginger inhibits growth and modulates secretion of angiogenic factors in ovarian cancer cells. The use of dietary agents such as ginger may have potential in the treatment and prevention of ovarian cancer.”

Ginger’s ability to treat Prostate Cancer

The British Journal of Nutrition published the results of an American study recently in which ginger extract killed human prostate cancer cells while healthy prostate cells were left alone. Whole ginger extract was revealed to shrink prostate tumor size by a whopping 56%.
