This One Spice Works Better than Drugs When it Comes to Cancer
After nearly three hundred years of medicinal use and recent research from the University of Michigan, we now know that ginger root can not only kill certain types of cancer cells, such as prostate and ovarian cancer, but do it better than chemotherapy and with zero side effects or toxicity.
Ginger (along with turmeric) must be one of the true miracles of Mother Nature. It has been used since ancient times to treat inflammation and nausea, but in a study presented at the American Association for Cancer Research it was shown that when powdered ginger was applied to cancer cells, those cells all died. This cell death is called apoptosis. In fact, when ginger is applied to cancer cells, these cells even attack one another, a phenomenon called autophagy.
Ginger is already being used for those who are undergoing chemotherapy to help treat their nausea and vomiting, however, why not use ginger in larger quantities to treat cancer in and of itself?
The British Journal of Nutrition published the results of a study performed in America at Georgia State University that showed that an extract from ginger (zingiber officinale) killed prostate cancer cells in humans while leaving healthy cells untouched. This extract from whole ginger was shown to shrink prostate tumors by as much as 56 percent.
In fact, more than 17 studies have shown that ginger has powerful anti-cancer benefits. This is welcome news when you find that most cancer drugs are not only ineffective at permanently reducing tumor sizes, but they actually end up making tumors grow larger when the chemo is discontinued, which means the patient ends up dying more quickly.
Ginger is also one of the best natural pain killers around. It has similar analgesic compounds like the popular ibuprofen. Gingers 4 fold fighting ingredients are gingerols, zingerone, shogaol, and paradol. These compounds fight prostaglandins which send signals of pain to the brain. In one study, subjects who were experiencing muscle pain were given ginger instead of typical pain relievers. Every single subject experienced lower levels of pain. If you experience recurring pain, try taking between 500 and 1,000 mgs of ginger each day (ginger tea made from fresh, organic ginger root) should give you the relief you are looking for.

Perhaps one of the best things about ginger is that, even when consumed in huge quantities, there are no side effects and no toxicity, something you can’t say about radiation and chemotherapy. About 15 percent of American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 20,000 women will get a diagnosis of ovarian cancer each year. Imagine the number of cases that can be helped with nothing more than ginger root?

Why won’t you hear about this on the nightly news or in your Facebook newsfeed? Because the cancer industry is one of the most prosperous businesses in the world. In 2014 alone, there will be more than 1.5 million new cases of cancer diagnosed in the US. The National Cancer Institute states that current medical costs of cancer care about approximately $125 billion, and that is expected to increase to $173 billion in the next 5 years.
This is why you won’t see the facts about ginger and how it can treat cancer in mainstream media. The cancer industry produces too much income and employs millions of people to ever allow a “cure” to be found. The cancer industry makes money only when it treats cancer, but will lose money if a cure is ever found. Read more about certain foods as cancer killers.
If you have cancer, or if you are under a doctor’s care, always talk to your doctor before starting any herbal program. Although ginger is believed to be safe for everyone, it might interfere with prescription drugs or, in rare cases, it could cause an allergic reaction. Be safe, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or are taking prescription medications, and always consult your physician before consuming any herbal supplement.

It is interesting that I had a crave on ginger soon after I had the stage four measurement of prostate cancer. I did not make the connection when I bought a lot of organic gingerbread cookies.
Later I did some research and began taking turmeric and graviola. That stopped the cancer symptoms I had more than a year, in three weeks. But that includes a lot of three time tests to confirm. If I ate half as much sugar and any dairy products, these herbs would fail.

Article says “when applied to cancer cells.” What about when it is consumed, does it get applied by the body to these cells?
