Being 1/4 Korean Rocks, Now For a New Reason

The National Women's Health Information Center had a news piece on Wednesday entitled "Ginger an Ovarian Cancer Killer." Researchers presented findings at a conference of the American Association for Cancer Research that suggested ginger could trigger ovarian cancer cell death, and prevent tumor cells from becoming resistant to treatment. According to the story, "It's already known that ginger helps control inflammation, which contributes to the development of ovarian cancer cells. By halting inflammation, ginger may stop cancer cells from growing, the researchers suggested." The full report is not yet available, and the AACR website was down as of Saturday afternoon.

Now, if the kimchee vs. bird flu and Pepcid AC vs asian flush things pan out, I'm going to be all set. :)
