Ginger Destroys Cancer More Effectively Than Chemotherapy- Study

loading...

In a Georga State University study on the effects of ginger extract on living cells, researchers found that ginger extract induced growth-inhibition and death on cancerous cells, while leaving the healthy cells alone.

Ginger was found found to have virtually no side effects, which separates it from modern-day chemotherapy.  Some forms of chemotherapy have actually been found to increase the rate of metastasis, causing cancer to appear in other organs that were unrelated to the organ being treated.

“Whatever manipulations we’re doing to tumors can inadvertently do something to increase the tumor numbers to become more metastatic, which is what kills patients at the end of the day,” said Dr. Raghu Kalluri, working on an unrelated study at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

At George State, the researchers found that ginger extract shrunk prostate tumors in mice by 56%, while reducing inflammation and providing anti-oxidants.

This study comes in addition to 17 other studies linking ginger to anti-cancer benefits.  The plant has also been subjected to peer-reviewed studies that link it to healing when dealing with over 101 other diseases.
