Ginger May Help With Prostrate Cancer

28 December 2011 No Comment

Sadly, prostrate cancer takes the lives of thousands and thousands of males every year.  Chemo, radiation, surgery, medications, etc., etc., are just some of the many treatments used in battling this disease.

Muscle & Fitness magazine recently informed that “Long known as a digestive aid, ginger may be able to slow the progression of prostrate cancer, according to a recent study.  Researchers at Georgia State University showed that ginger extract slowed the progression of prostrate cancer grafts in mice by as much as 56%.  The dose used was moderate, the human equivalent of 736 mgs for a 200-pound person.”

Any little bit helps!
