Ginger for cancer therapy

GINGER is a medicinal plant or what we call herbal remedies that can be used to kill ovarian cancer cells while the components contained in the chili could be expected to shrink or shrink pancreatic tumors. So says Dr. Rebecca Liu, assistant professor in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, the U.S., and his team, who have tested ginger powder dissolved and applied to ovarian cancer cell cultures.

The study states that there is evidence of a variety of spicy or hot foods beneficial to inhibit the growth of cancer. The study examined the effectiveness of ginger against cancer cells. Nonetheless, this study is the first step.
It is said, ginger can kill cancer cells by two roads, namely the destruction process called apoptosis and autophagy, the process of cell feeds. It outlined the experts in the meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research.

According to Dr. Rebecca, many cancer patients who are resistant to standard chemotherapy, in which the action of chemotherapy is the process of apoptosis. While ginger has the ability to take cells (autophagy) can help those who are resistant to chemotherapy.

American Cancer Society reported ovarian cancer kills 16,000 of 22,000 U.S. women. Ginger is proven to control the inflammatory state, which is associated with the development of ovarian cancer cells.

In another study using rats given capsaicin (a compound in chili peppers), Sanjay Srivastava of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, USA, found that capsaicin was able to turn off pancreatic cancer cells. Capsaicin make cancer cells die and have the ability to reduce tumor size.
