Ginger may be a powerful fighter against colon cancer
About the author: 

Ginger, the popular spice, may help prevent colon cancer

Ginger, the popular spice, may help prevent colon cancer. It reverses colon inflammation, a key marker for the cancer - and the effect was seen after just 28 days.
The spice - which is the root of the Zingiber officinale plant - reverses inflammation by blocking eicosanoids, special signalling molecules in the central nervous system, which control the immune response of inflammation.
Researchers witnessed a 'significant reduction' in colon inflammation in a group of volunteers who took 2 g of ginger every day for 28 days compared to another group that were given a placebo.
The research team from the University of Michigan carried out the latest trial after discovering the spice the incidence and number of tumours in rats.
