We all have a cancer killer in our kitchen and probably are not aware of it. Some did not like the smell or because of the heat it produces in the body. I love ginger and it fragrance. A friend sent me a write up on the medicinal properties of Ginger and I like to share it with you.

GINGER has powerful healing effects and has been well documented. It is a proven remedy for upset stomach. Reams of studies show that it inhabits inflammation and there is substantial evidence that it fights cancer.

For instance, a recent University of Michigan study showed that when ginger was added to ovarian cancer cells in the laboratory, it caused the cancer cells to self-destruct (a process known as “apoptosis”).”

For health benefits, try using ginger as often as you can. The best was I have found to get a good serving of ginger is to juice it. You can juice it together with apple, carrots, spinach, broccoli, cabbage and it gives a great flavor to the drink.

I had a friend who burped badly. This is due to the cold food he consumed without
heating it up. I beat up two eggs, juiced a ginger, added rock sugar and steam it until the egg turned into custard form. I made him eat it before he goes to bed. Immediately we saw the effect the next day, the burping is lesser. With another one more dosage and the burping stopped totally.

There are many type of gingers and use it when you cook. I have always sliced ginger into thin strips when I steam a fish, or add it into my plain porridge. It is best when you stirred -fry vegetables. Another way is to blend ginger, add a little table salt and oil. Eat it with steamed chicken and black sauce, it is yummy.


  1. I love ginger and use it as often as possible ... in fact, today I created a lentil curry dish and ... yep ... I put ginger in it. Yum! Not only is it a healthy food ... it tastes great.

    Thanks for the information and the ways you use it.

    Take Care!

  2. My mummy always nag at me for not putting ginger in my vege dishes... coz she said most of the vegetables are "cold" and have to add ginger to bring heat to the body.

    Now the I am overseas with no mummy's homemade food, I gotta listen to her and be good to my own body.. ^_^

  3. Very great people with nice blogs content :)

  4. Hi Guys

    Thanks for the response. Small, I just went to click on your site and probably will follow the challenge.

    Cindy, not many people can take the heat of ginger. I suppose living in Japan is cold so you need ginger to 'warm' you. I know you already got a BIG 'Ginger'.... ha.a.a.a this is for consumption.

    Snow...in Singapore, we should eat more.

    Hi Zeeshan, thank you for dropping by and for the compliments. I believe you have a great blog too.

  5. Will try out nxt time when my mother-in-law burps again. Thanks for the info.
