Similar to its cousin spice, turmeric, which has a strong anti-cancer effect, ginger is largely known for its incredible ability to shrink tumors.
Amazingly, studies have shown that it is even more effective than many drugs used in the cancer therapies, that are now considered to be completely ineffective and it is believed that these actually accelerate the death of patients diagnosed with cancer.
Ginger is commonly consumed in small doses all across the world -- you may add it to your dish or you can either find it in some drinks. Its healing properties are much better than some advanced pharmaceutical inventions.
The Georgia State University conducted a study involving laboratory mice. The results showed that whole ginger extract can actually shrinks prostate tumor size by an astonishing 56% in mice.
Its anti-cancer properties came to subject in addition to the role of this spice in reducing inflammation, and its high content of life-enhancing antioxidants.
Let’s go back to the cancer drugs issue. Is it possible that this simple spice can really surpass the advanced pharmaceutical solutions that doctors often consider as the ‘only option’ for patients diagnosed with cancer?
Scientists have shown that drugs used in cancer therapies are not only severely ineffective at permanently shrinking tumors -- which is supposed to be their main purpose, but they actually make tumors grow larger and eventually the patients die a lot sooner than expected.
To be more precise, these drugs are held as responsible for the ‘metastasis,’ meaning the tumors come back bigger and more stronger than they originally were. What is even worse, at that stage the ‘metasizing’ appears to be even more aggressive.
The scientists from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston explained that the premium priced cancer drugs are a ‘little’ worse than death sentences for many of the patients struggling with caner.
“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 the study author, Dr. Raghu Kalluri.
And there is no need to mention that these are the very drugs that mainstream health officials consider to be the only scientifically proven solution.
Meanwhile, ginger has no side-effects and people have been using it since ancient times. So instead of supporting the tumor growth, whole ginger extract has shown to be able to shrink tumors significantly and actually it helped patients diagnosed with prostate cancer avoid death.
There are 17 other studies that also gave the same results regarding ginger’s anti-cancer benefits, and there is evidence proving that ginger has a positive impact on more than 101 diseases.
