"Ginger, a commonly consumed spice found in food products and beverages worldwide, has been found to exhibit many anticancer benefits. According to a new study out of Georgia State University, whole ginger extract has been found to reduce prostate tumor size by 56% in mice. In addition, ginger is a powerful source of several bioactive phenolics, including gingerols, paradols, shogaols and gingerones."
The trouble is ginger can't be patented, so don't look for official approval of this by any medical authorities - pharma won't get into this and so it's relegated to the fringes.
