Cancer could be destroyed — Naturally
There are many websites, books and videos that tell us eating natural food — raw, unprocessed natural food and vegetables is one of the best ways of avoiding cancer. But now there is scientific proof that ginger extracts (GE) have a role to play in safely treating cancer cells.
Ginger is an excellent source of several bio-active phenolics. Ginger has been known to display anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, indicating its promising role as a chemo-preventive agent.
Whole ginger extract was tested on prostate cancer cells in mice and startling results were discovered. Remarkably, daily oral feeding of 100 mg/kg body weight of GE inhibited growth and progression of 56 % in mice, as shown by measurements of tumour volume. In addition these comprehensive studies have also confirmed that GE works with human prostate cancer cells.
Tumour tissue from GE-treated mice showed reduced proliferation index and widespread apoptosis compared with controls, as determined by immunoblotting and immunohistochemical methods.
Most importantly, GE did not exert any detectable toxicity in normal, rapidly dividing tissues such as gut and bone marrow. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report to demonstrate the in vitro and in vivo anticancer activity of whole GE for the management of prostate cancer.

So, to me, this begs a very important question, why, in the face of actual scientific evidence (there are many other studies to confirm this) aren’t we pushing this line of inquiry as hard as possible? If the pharmaceutical industry embraced the search for natural remedies, rather than synthetic drugs, progress could be made to obliterate this awful disease. Given the fact the cancer can be treated with none of the awful side-effects associated with chemotherapy. We should look at this because of the damage caused by this barbaric treatment for cancer patients.
I say this for a very important reason — my son has just been diagnosed with cancer — stage 3 lymphoma. Until now cancer has only touched the very extreme edges of my social circle, it has never dared to come close to me. Now it has hit the centre of my world and I’m angry. I’m angry at myself first of all for being lazy and not doing anything before. I’m angry at the large pharmaceutical companies for not researching in this area. I’m angry at governments who aren’t doing enough to push this line of inquiry and I’m angry that cancer charities, who receive billions of dollars a year, aren’t doing more.
But most of all I’m angry that we are still pumping our loved ones full of mustard gas, a toxic poison, dressed up as a medicine. I have to stand by while educated people (doctors) glibly decide that the “best way” to treat my son is to decimate his immune system in the vain hope they will kill the cancer. But the question is — how much of my son will die in the process.

I can’t question the doctors as this is considered heresy by my family and the good doctors would probably nod sagely and say in a condescending way that “alternative therapies” are untried and untested. Maybe they are untried because no one with enough influence seems willing to at least try something different.
Oh boy, I’m angry because I feel impotent and useless in the face of the machine that the medical industry has become.
I’m also angry because I have no voice — no one will read this and, if they do, people will agree with me (I hope) but then move onto something else more important in their day. This is what I used to do — so I’m sorry I didn’t do more before.
