Ginger causes Ovarian Cancer cells to Die

GINGER CAUSES OVARIAN CANCER CELLS TO DIE -UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN REPORT.

Ginger is known to ease nausea and control inflammation but researchers at the University of Michigan in a study sponsored by the National Institute of Health, are investigating a new use for this age old remedy: treating ovarian cancer.

Quote:
In laboratory studies, researchers found ginger caused ovarian cancer cells to die. Further the way in which cells died suggests ginger may avoid the problem common in ovarian cancer of cells becoming resistant to standard treatments.

Researchers used ginger powder, similar to what is sold at grocery stores, only a standardized research grade. The ginger powder was dissolved in solution and applied to ovarian cancer cell cultures. Ginger induced cell death in all the ovarian cancer cell lines tested.

Moreover, the researchers found that ginger caused two types of cell death. One type, known as apoptosis, results from cancer cells essentially committing suicide. The other type of cell death, called autophagy, results from cells digesting or attacking themselves.
