    Ginger is a spice that has many beneficial effects on cells. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that protect cells from mutations, especially cancerous ones. In fact, over 50 antioxidants have been found in ginger.

    Ginger can also help to lessen chemotherapy-associated nausea. If nausea is a concern, try adding ginger to tea (add 1 tablespoon each of ginger root and lemon to hot water) or to soups (like carrot), as well as dressings like this one.
