Study Reveals: Mixing Ginger And Chili Creates A Powerful Combination Against Deadly Cancer!!

Ginger and chili are usually used as spice, which are commonly seen in our kitchen. However, they not only add spice and flavor to our dish – they can also be used to treat various diseases.

A recent study has found that these popular spices have properties that significantly reduce the mice’s chance of developing lung cancer, due to their ability to bind to a receptor that is also responsible for tumor growth.

According to the online Journal of Agricultural And Food Chemistry, capsaicin, a compound in chili peppers, and 6-gingerol, a component in ginger, could work together to lower the risk of cancer, possibly because 6-gingerol binds to capsaicin to form a super-strong compound, which inhibits key tumor-growing receptors.
