Ginger Processes Anti Cancer Potential, Scientists Suggest

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a pungent kitchen spice which processes the potency for the prevention and treatment of cancers, some studies found.

Cancer is the class of chronic illness characterized by cell growth disorderly and uncontrollably on some tissue and organs in the body.

Most cases of cancer start in the cells on the surface of the inner lining of specific tissue or organs in the early stage.

Most patients in this stage depending on the type of cancer do not experience any symptoms. However, at the advanced stage, as the tumor has penetrated deeply into the layers of tissue, most cancer can suppress the nearby tissue and nerve cells, causing localized symptoms and severe pain.

At this stage, the cancerous cells can travel a distance away from the original site to infect other healthy tissue and organs.

The exact causes of cancer are unknown. Epidemiological studies, depending on the type of cancer suggested that aging, sun exposure, radiation exposure, toxic chemicals viruses and bacteria, certain hormones, family history of cancer are some most common prevalent risk factors of cancer.

Some researchers suggested. obesity or overweight, poor diet, and lifestyle are the most common preventable risk factors associated with cancer onset in the US.

According to the statistic, approximately:over 200,000 new cancer diagnoses and 80,800 deaths from cancer in Canada in 2017.

Lung, colorectal, breast, and prostate cancer are accounted for about half of all cancer diagnoses and deaths. 

About 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetimes and 1 in 4 will die of the disease.

In the concern of the prevalence of overweight and obesity is increasing worldwide and a link between obesity and cancer is growing, Dr. Karen Basen-Engquis, the lead author launched an investigation to examine the obesity and cancer risk.

At the final report of the experiment, the team said, " Recent research has found that as the body mass index increases by 5 kg/m2, cancer mortality increases by 10%." and "Additionally, studies of patients who have had bariatric surgery for weight loss report reductions in cancer incidence and mortality, particularly for women".

And, "Numerous cohort studies, summarized in systematic reviews, have shown a link between obesity and cancer incidence overall and for selected cancer sites (eg, endometrial, postmenopausal breast, colon, and esophageal adenocarcinoma)".

These results clearly suggested the risk of cancer is elevated in obese and overweight population compared to healthy weight individuals.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.

The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine to treat dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.

On finding a natural whole food for the treatment of cancer with no side effects, researchers looked into the ginger antiemetic and anticancer activities.

By examing the phytochemistry, bioactivity, and molecular targets of ginger constituents, especially 6-shogaol, researchers suggested that the content of 6-shogaol found very low in fresh ginger, but significantly higher after steaming exerts a significant anti-cancer activity.
Dr. Wang CZ, after taking into account co and confounders, said, "6-shogaol can be served as a lead compound for new drug discovery" and " The lead compound derivative synthesis, bioactivity evaluation, and computational docking provide a promising opportunity to identify novel anticancer compounds originating from the ginger".

Furthermore, in the examination of the plant-derived exosome-like nanoparticles, a promising substitution and exhibit anti-cancer biocompatibility through oral, intranasal administration, researchers looked into ligands from the ginger.

Application of ligands from the ginger demonstrated an anticancer effect by the ability to exhibit the gene expression in T-cells with siRNAs through activating innate immune responses.

These results suggested that ligands on ginger derived exosome-like nanovesicles (GDENs) inhibit tumor growth on a xenograft model by intravenous administration.

Taken together, ginger processed ligands on ginger derived exosome-like nanovesicles (GDENs)and 6-shogaol may be considered a function for the prevention and combined with primary therapy for the treatment of cancer without inducing adverse effects.
