According to the latest research, conducted by group of scientists at the University of Michigan, and thanks to the three centuries of medicinal use of this root, we can now realize that ginger root is killing ovarian and prostate cancer cells, without harming the healthy human cells. This actually means that this super healthy root destroys cancer cells, without the bad side-effects (usually caused by the conventional chemotherapy treatment).
Ginger root is absolutely amazing and it’s one of the healthiest foods on the planet. It has been used for treating nausea and inflammation problems. According to the results from the American Association for Cancer Research, the medical experts have found that every time ginger powder was used to treat cancer cells, all cancer cells were destroyed, because they were exposed to this super healthy compound.
This eliminating process is also known by the name apoptosis, which in medical terms means – cancer cell suicide. So, when the cancer cells are exposed to this super healthy root, they start to attack each other. This process is called autophagy. The medical experts claim that this root is very useful and beneficial natural remedy for cancer patients, who are undergoing chemotherapy. Sometimes, ginger is used in much bigger amounts, to treat cancer patients without the chemotherapy drugs and medications, or the radiation therapies.
Other, more recent study, which also showed ginger’s ability to fight ovarian cancer, has found that 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.
