Ginger is a remarkable root already listed as “super food” as it has variety of health benefits. It has been used for many years due to its fantastic benefits which start to multiply nowadays, and moreover these benefits have been scientifically proven.
There is a remarkable finding that with its health promoting qualities, it can be 10,000 times more efficient in eliminating cancer than chemotherapy, discovered in a recent study.
This is what Food Revolution reports, quoting:“The new study titled, ‘6-Shogaol Inhibits Breast Cancer Cells and Stem Cell-Like Spheroids by Modulation of Notch Signaling Pathway and Induction of Autophagic Cell Death,’ identified powerful anti-cancer stem cell activity in 6-shogaol, a pungent constituent of ginger produced when the root is either dried or cooked. The study also found that the cancer-destroying effects occurred at concentrations that were non-toxic to non-cancerous cells – a crucial difference from conventional cancer treatments that do not exhibit this kind of selective cytotoxicity and therefore can do great harm to the patient.”
Cancer stems cells are also referred as mother cells as they need daughter cells which will multiply thus forming tumors. It was discovered by researchers that chemotherapy is not very effective in destroying these mother cells, and because of that cancer may reappear after some time.
Here below is what research findings report:“Cancer stem cells pose serious obstacle to cancer therapy as they can be responsible for poor prognosis and tumor relapse. To add into the misery, very few chemotherapeutic compounds show promise to kill these cells. Several researchers have shown that cancer stem cells are resistant to paclitaxel, doxorubicin, 5-fluorouracil, and platinum drugs. CSCs are thus an almost unreachable population in tumors’ for chemotherapy. Therefore any compound, that shows promise towards cancer stem cells, is a highly desirable step towards cancer treatment and should be followed up for further development.”
