New Study: Ginger is 10,000X stronger than chemo (and only kills CANCER CELLS) 


Turmeric has widely been toted for its effect on cancer, but new research has shown that its cousin ginger is just as powerful. Not only that, it’s been found to be even more effective than some cancer medications at killing cancer. There is even evidence of some cancer medications being ineffective and actually accelerating the death of cancer patients.

The Power Of Ginger

One study, conducted by Georgia State University found that whole ginger extract was able to reduce the size of a prostate tumor by 56% in mice. In addition to its effect on cancer, ginger was also observed to reduce inflammation and supply the mice with life-enhancing antioxidants.

Another study published in PLoS found that one particular component in ginger known as 6-shogaol is superior to conventional cancer medication, namely chemotherapy, at targeting the root cause of breast cancer malignancy: breast cancer stem cells.

Sometimes referred to as ‘mother cells’ cancer stem cells are the cause of a wide range of cancers, not simply breast cancer. These ‘mother cells’ are responsible for creating the different ‘daughter’ cell types that makeup the tumor colony. While cancer stem cells only constitute .2 to 1% of the cell makeup of the tumor, they seem to be almost ‘immortal’.

What that means is these cancer stem cells are able to self renew; they are capable of continuous differentiation, are resistant to conventional chemotherapeutic agents, and are capable of splitting off and forming new tumor colonies. The only way to fully ensure that your body is cancer free is to destroy the cancer stem cells within a tumor.

This new study found that the pungent constituent in ginger known as 6-shogaol was very active when it came to anti-cancer stem behavior. This constituent is produced when the root is either dried or cooked, two very common uses for ginger already. But there is something very specific about 6-shogaol that makes it superior to chemotherapy treatments for cancer.

Researchers found that these cancer-destroying effects occurred at concentrations that were non-toxic to non-cancer cells. That means that this particular component of ginger only killed cancer cells, leaving healthy cells alone. This makes it very different from conventional cancer treatments that do not display that kind of selective cytotoxicity, meaning they can really harm the patient.

When it comes to breast cancer, 6-shogaol significantly affects the cell cycle therefore resulting in increased cancer cell death. It induces programmed cell death through the induction of autophagy. It also inhibits breast cancer spheroids (lumps) from forming. But that isn’t the only astounding thing about 6-shogaol.

This study also found, that in tests of the cancer drug taxol, it did not show the same level of effectiveness at destroying cancer stem cells and tumors as 6-shogaol. Even when the concentrations of taxol were increased, it was still found that 6-shogaol was 10,000 times more effective at killing cancer stem cells, stopping tumors from forming, and keeping healthy cells alive.

More research needs to be done so we can show that ‘modern cancer medicine’ is not as effective as natural medicine; making our bodies sick while trying to cure a disease is simply not enough anymore.

    But think of all the money that the pharmaceutical companies will lose! It will affect income at Gorski’s hospital! And making money is supposed to be modern health-care’s priority, right?
    They won’t make a cent if we all use ginger instead, anybody can get hold of THAT, and it’s too late to patent it…

    That’s a nice heads up.

  • Alleged Comment

    I thought it was laetrile? The radio show last night said it was PROVEN effective against cancer by two TOP researchers.

    Erin Elizabeth, Sayer Ji, Unfortunately, the next cure your gonna need is for lead poisoning. The banksters don’t like your type, (do gooders), and may kill you for the same reason they killed Einstein: He knew too much.

  • darthangel

    So you would rather see her live in fear? Some things are worth standing for. Comments like that destroy the confidence of those who would stand up for truth.

  • darthangel

    They want you to think everyone supports them. Of course once you realize democracy is a facade, you realize they have much less support than appears on the surface. We have been promised that a remnant of awakened will always survive….and yes, the powermad will always lose in the end no matter how many they bring down with them.

    The cancer industry is a racket for sure. I would only use chemo as a last resort.

    We call it being aware rather than negative. Does being positive includes accepting all the rubbish going on with a smile on our faces?! Chemotherapy kills people so why not say no to it and turn to alternatives which have been proved to work!

    Thanks Health Nut and all concerned for this article…It supports what Dr Chan says

  • Here’s hundreds of foot notes to evidence 🙂 I know some are sad when we prove it. Hope you’re one of the good guys.

    That link simply goes back to this this article. NOT very good journalism and not in the least convincing. 🙂

  • al

    Let me be real clear. It is horribly reckless to imply people should skip chemotherapy and just eat ginger. One might as well say that jumping off the george washington bridge kills cancer. First, mice aren’t human. While they are similar, there’s a reason the FDA requires cancer treatments be proven in double blinded human studies for effigy and safety. Also, this statement contradicts itself. ” “occurred at concentrations that were non-toxic to non-cancer cells. That means that this particular component of ginger only killed cancer cells, leaving healthy cells alone. This makes it very different from conventional cancer treatments that do not display that kind of selective cytotoxicity,” given at nontoxic concentrations…doesn’t mean the drug is not cytotoxic, it means the dosage is. There actually are many drugs that are selectively cytotoxic, that’s why so many drugs are available, a drug may be effective in one kind of tumor, and not another. For God’s sake PLEASE don’t give people unproven medical advice that has potentially lethal effects. Are you sure you want to live with that?

  • al

    once they derive a drug from a component they can patent that.

  • I have no words for this comment

  • at the bottom of the article it has (SINCE THE START) said “link to the STUDY” please click on it and you’ll find the study. it’s been there all along. You’re welcome.

  • I’m not giving medical advice. I’m simply printing a story that is backed up with evidence. Not only that. MAINSTREAM news is writing articles every day – like this on- on NPR that says chemo doesn’t help us live longer or better. Same with the documentary Millions just watched “The Truth About Cancer” Sorry but even doctors and scientists (over 100 in that 12 hour doc) are saying the same thing. NPR: THE TRUTH ABOUT CHEMO which doesn’t help us live longer or better

  • Jetwoman

    Recommendations on how much to use?

  • Lynn Noell

    Taxol, a chemotherapeutic drug used to treat Breast Cancer and other types of cancer, is actually derived from the Yew tree in California. Many of the chemotherapy drugs come from plants, e.g. vinca alkaloids, etoposide, etc. It’s important to know that even natural substances from plants can have side effects and toxicities.

  • i think she was talking to the negative guest 😀 XO E

  • FairIsFair1207

    Wondering…how MUCH Ginger should be consumed daily? Best method of cooking? THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!!

  • blemum

    To be fair, that is a mischaracterization of the NPR story and the documentary. The issue at hand in those is not that “chemo doesn’t work” etc., it is the fact that we often treat people who are already to advanced along the disease path for the treatment to do much good. This overuse of late stage treatments is what skews the stats and creates the issue of wasted dollars. “Cancer” is an umbrella label for literally thousands of different diseases that only share one common aspect, their derivation from out of control cell mutations. Many cancers the body fights off on its own with no intervention. Others are imminently treatable with scientifically proven therapies that are quite varied (there is not a single treatment known as “chemo”).Advising or attempting to scare people away from treatment is terribly unethical. Delaying treatment often can lead to death, even if the patient reconsiders later on to get treatment after the disease has progressed.

    Furthermore, any scientist or researcher worth an ounce of water will tell you that literally thousands of substances show promise in petri dish and mouse model studies. Unfortunately, very few ever find success in human trials. These stories such as “ginger cures cancer” or “cannabis cures cancer” do a disservice to the complexities of the disease, the very real struggles faced by researchers and patients, and of course just basic societal understandings of how such matters work.

  • ZAK

    So how readily bio-available is 6-shogaol compared to Curcumin for instance? I’ve read the most people can get out of pure curcumin is around 12% (by boiling the capsules for at least 10 mins). So it would definitely be a big deal if this compound can be more easily absorbed.

  • Pinkdragon

    I’m wondering where to purchase whole ginger extract so that I can get it in the purest form? … or would shaving raw ginger into hot water and drinking do the same thing? I do that often.

  • Anni Mock

    I saw that – You need to pray always for safety, I will pray for you as well. It seems to me that they are taking out all of the Doctors / Holistic practitioners / etc. capable of exposing the truth~
    Just like they did that Bankers last year. ; – ]
    Be well my friend~

  • roxana

    Now… pay attention…”al” at what am I about to tell you.
    You can take FDA and shovel up your……what ever.
    If you want to find out some of your medical staff methods of “healing”.
    I leaved in London for a few years. In 2005 following a exaggerated scratching of my chest I went to have an X-ray. It was only the effect of the scratching that created a pain in the chest bone and second inferior rib. They told me that it might be TB or cancer. They found “apical nodules”, two, to start with and then five, and then five ,and then 8 and they added extras wrongs at my kidneys,etc. So… dear medical team take your pick. Only when I said that I will have a second opinion back home I will decide what will happen THEY BACKED dawn a little, but insisting that I should have TWO MRI $$$$$$$$$$$$$. To find out that there are “innocent” apical nodules appear from time to time in 3 out of 5 people at various times in life for various reasons. These are coming and going by them selves.
    How many people were misled to have chemo and even lungs taken out AND TRANSPLANTS $$$$$$$$$. I tell you. MILLIONS++++++?!?!?!?! POOR PEOPLE.
    I walked out and I said “well If I have cancer “let’s have a cigarette and enjoy a coffee”. I booked a plain ticket and to go home and sort it out among my family without telling them. IT IS NOW 2015.
    Can you sent me to see one single person who was saved by medical treatment. NOT ONE IN 100 YEARS.
    In 2013 I was taken to hospital following a bile problem. I walked OUT WITH 4 STENTS SECRETLY IMPLANTED IN MY ARTERIES, blocking other 7 marginal branches. After my own research in Cardiology field at the end of almost two years I discovered how the system works and the methods are using. THEY GOT ME THIS TIME, despite my verbal opposition.
    The system is united, they are hand in hand, POLICE, justices, etc.
    I was used as a Guinean Pig for training and research purposes by young unknown students . Now I’m waiting that one of the stents will break and that will do.
    It is not such a thing as a stent healing the arteries$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
    How many are mislead. I tell you. MILLIONS+++++++$$$$$$$$$$
    For the time I have a cigarette and enjoy a coffee almost every day.
    I stopped immediately taking the 6 tablets (the actually silence killers) and followed a simple natural diet for 6 mounts. I fell good for time being, I have a normal life, but I still can’t go over the fact that I have been used.
    People like Elisabeth might be wrong or might be right it is always us who will decide at the end of the day what and who to follow.
    Your medical staff and other organisations had the chance to prove what they can or can’t do for hundreds of years.

  • Vicky Sloane

    I love to read these kinds of articles. I get that the point was to show how there are better alternatives that are natural, but still in research stage (never ending). What I find however is there usually isn’t much information as to how the everyday person can use something like ginger to help them selves. I didn’t see any mention as to how much the rats were given (not that I’m okay with animal research) It did mention cooked or dried leading one to assume it doesn’t need to be overly concentrated or injected. Still it would be nice to see more breakdowns into how one might “realistically” use ginger. I wonder what the end game here is. For the pharmaceutical companies to add a bunch of crap to it, make it an over priced treatment, or for it to be recommended as a diet additive to prevent and or help treat cancer? Can one just drink 3 cups of tea a day?

  • Paul_CA

    If the alternatives have been proven to work then why isn’t this a medical break through on headlines of every media outlet? As a caretaker for someone going through Chemo I find it hurtful to hear the negative talk about this sensitive subject. Has the FDA or the American Medical Journal approved ginger extract as an alternative to chemo? Don’t give out false hope to us (caretakers). We are going through a living hell already.

  • It’s amazing people can’t click 😀 XOOXXO

  • carona

    Be polite! There is no need for name-calling.

  • R.j. Parker

    Kit, how much ginger, DMSO, laetrile and C were you using daily? Greatly appreciate your info, my wife has cancer and trying to help her. Thanks! John

  • RomeoOscOscSierraTangoEchoRome

    For Jill….

  • Stev

    Thank you for this post.

    To be honest, I am so shocked that pharmaceutical companies get away with this and that the federal government, once called on, take the pharmaceutical’s side because if money. I once thought this was done for damage control, you know too many population and wanting to keep it somehow manageable but this is a complete nonsense. We all as one, as one species, must stand to these goons and bullies. All of us are fully aware of how corrupt the government is and yet, we sit and watch our loved ones, our friends go through the pain and move on to their next phase of this journey. It just blows my mind!



    My mum was diagnosed in February with stage 1C ovarian cancer. She had surgery and chemo but it didn’t help. Would love to try this! What dosage would be taken and how?

  • Mary Rae

    Are you using EsterC which is better absorbed that regular C?

  • Mary Rae

    Just like in the boy in Lorenzo’s Oil, they couldn’t make any money on some oil compounds, so no research was done .

  • TotallyWow

    Can you please share brand of ginger and how much you took? I’m trying to determine how much Shogaol was involved as recent new/articles have been intriguing. We’re you taking a pill – would help to know exactly what you were taking – I’m trying to share info with a dear friend with cancer who wants to work with her doctor on complimentary natural opportunities in conjunction with her chemo. Thanks in advance….and I hope you are doing well now.
