A report that ginger destroys cancer tumours more effectively than many cancer drugs

Ginger Destroys Cancer More Effectively than Death-Linked Cancer Drugs

Ginger, a cousin spice of super anti-cancer substance turmeric, is known for its ability to shrink tumors. Astoundingly, it is even more effective than many cancer drugs, which have been shown to be completely ineffective and actually accelerate the death of cancer patients. Commonly consumed across the world in small doses among food and beverage products, the medicinal properties of ginger far surpass even advanced pharmaceutical inventions.

The subject of one study based out of Georgia State University, whole ginger extract was revealed to shrink prostate tumor size by 56% in mice. The anticancer properties were observed in addition to ginger’s role in reducing inflammation as well as being a rich source of life-enhancing antioxidants. But what about cancer drugs? Could this simple spice really topple the advanced pharmaceuticals that are often touted as the ‘only option’ for cancer patients by medical doctors?

It turns out that cancer drugs are not only severely ineffective at permanently shrinking tumors, but they actually make tumors larger and kill the patient more quickly. More specifically, the tumors have been found to ‘metasize’, meaning they come back bigger and more stronger than their original size. What’s more, the ‘metasizing’ was found to be very aggressive. According to scientists Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, the premium priced drugs were little more than death sentences for many patients.

“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 study author Dr. Raghu Kalluri.

These are the very drugs considered to be the scientifically proven solution by mainstream health officials.

Meanwhile, ginger presents virtually no side effects and has been used as a food product by many cultures for countless centuries. Instead of creating super tumors, whole ginger extract was shown to exert significant growth-inhibiting and death-inductory effects in a spectrum of prostate cancer cells. Over 17 other studies have also reached similar conclusions on ginger’s anticancer benefits, with the spice being shown by peer-reviewed research to positively impact beyond 101 diseases.

This information seems promising. I googled research on ginger as cancer destroyer and used various combinations of keywords. There seems to be a good reason to hope this might be an alternative to those wretched pharmaceutical drugs. ginger and cancer research reveals different research trials. 

"Some proponents have also claimed ginger is able to keep tumors from developing, even though available scientific evidence does not support this."

"While ginger may be effective in treating nausea and vomiting linked to some cancer treatments, it may also interfere with blood clotting. If this happens, it could be life threatening to some patients receiving chemotherapy."

"You may have just heard about a new or alternative form of cancer treatment. Before you put your time, your body, and your money on the line, learn more about what you are looking at so you can decide if it's worth it."

Learning About New Cancer Treatments

Do you have plans to include ginger in your diet or make adjustments to your protocol? I am very interested in what you decide and the impact on your cancer.

Thank you for the reference on ginger as a cancer fighting agent.  It's always good to look into the options.

If I can be a skeptic about this article, I would like to do so.

Starting with the first sentence, referring to turmeric as a super cancer fighting substance - I don't see any references there.  I would want to see actual evidence-based-medicine, showing that there is anticancer benefit to turmeric.   Actual statistically valid research.

Back to ginger, if the spice far surpasses advanced pharmaceutical inventions, as the article states - how about some comparative studies.  I don't see those referenced.

The article makes a blanket statement that cancer drugs are "severely ineffective at permanently shrinking tumors....  make tumors larger" and states they "metasize" meaning they come back bigger and larger.  Which sounds like "supersize me".  But - I think the term they want is metastasize, and that means not that they come back bigger and "more stronger", but they spread through the body.  Ultimately they might grow "bigger and more stronger" - I'm unclear on the meaning of "more stronger" - because cancers do grow.  I tried to search on "metasize" but it did not search on google.  That leads me to think the author really has no idea what they are talking about.

The article links to another that states a research study "proves, once and for all, the complete fraud of the conventional cancer industry. Not only is chemotherapy, the standard method of cancer treatment today, a complete flop, based on the findings, but it is actually detrimental for patients with cancer.

In the end, then, that means decades of basic research and applied research, using the same evidence based science that we use as the basis for out nontheism, are fraudulent.  I guess, a massive conspiracy. 

I don't want to deny anyone hope, and I don't want to be over supportive of the profit-based, often crony-based research system.  I know it's flawed.  That's how science grows, replacing imperfect past information with information that is incrementally closer to correct.  I have also read that more people are surviving cancer, and being cured of cancer, than ever before.

That's my 2 cents.  Again, said respectfully, and not wanting to deny anyone of hope or optimism for the future, but wanting to be as much of an evidence-based skeptic as I can.

I was aware of the horrible cure rate for cancer chemotherapy.

Though I enjoy the taste of ginger, my stomach can't handle it.

Here we are - it took a bit of effort, but I'm thinking this is the actual research report regarding ginger extracts and prostate cancer.   There may well be other reports.

It's a bit arcane, unless you like reading primary research papers.

Extracted from the abstract-

Here we show antiproliferative efficacy of the most-active GE [Ginger Extract]  biophenolics as single-agents and in binary combinations...  Our data demonstrate that binary combinations of ginger phytochemicals synergistically inhibit proliferation of PC-3 cells...  Interestingly, combining GE with its constituents (in particular, 6-gingerol) resulted in significant augmentation of GE's antiproliferative activity. These data generate compelling grounds for further preclinical evaluation of GE alone and in combination with individual ginger biophenols for prostate cancer management.

Link to the original research paper.

"Ginger phytochemicals exhibit synergy to inhibit prostate cancer cell proliferation"

If anyone wants to discuss the paper in more detail, I'd be happy to talk about it.  The actual research paper looks more rigorous than the 3rd-party article.

Somewhere buried in the text, they also say how much ginger would be required to have an effect.  I'll have to look for that again.  I was sleepy and groggy when I read it.  Which I am now again, too.

Let's see.....  some ginger tea.  More specifically, chai with pepper, cinnamon, clove, and ginger.  And honey.  I love that stuff.

What ginger does when you eat it isn't the same as what ginger extract does in a lab to a cell culture. 

There are many other herbs etc. with some research evidence of anticancer properties.  Like pau d'arco. 

But who knows how much it actually helps with cancer to use those herbs.

I wonder how much truth there is to the accusation that an herb could be a powerful cancer medicine, but not used in mainstream medicine because a pharmaceutical co. can't patent it.

Good point.

What ginger does when you eat it isn't the same as what ginger extract does in a lab to a cell culture.

Daniel, you wrote, "ginger tea.  More specifically, chai with pepper, cinnamon, clove, and ginger.  And honey.  I love that stuff."

I have never had chai. Do you brew it? buy it? What form of ginger do you use? 

ginger tea, Daniel's recipe

chai

pepper

cinnamon

clove 

ginger

honey 

Joan, the ones I buy are in teabags. There are various brands of chai. Chai is basically just an Indian style spiced tea. My favorite brands are Tazo and Stash. I just looked at the Tazo and found it does not have ginger on the label but does in the ingredients. Some of the store brand is good too.
What kind of pepper Daniel? Black pepper? That sounds like a strange choice to me. Are we talking about a spicy tea or something with a flavor like ginger ale, which I love, and drink often for my stomach.
And is this tea good for your stomach?
Sorry there are so many questions here.
I just re read what you wrote and it plainly says spicey. Sorry about that.
Ky I think its black pepper. Sounds strange but I like it.

Once you try it, you're hooked, it's so tasty! You can also add some dried orange peel, and how much you take of the ingredients is not so important. Just let it brew for ten minutes.

I'll give it a try! Thanks.
