A&T, NCCU team up to study disease-fighting ginger

The bioactive compounds in ginger pack a punch, two of them, actually. Fresh ginger contains anemia-fighting gingerols. Dry ginger contains shogaols, biocompounds that could be helpful in preventing cancer. Scientists from N.C., A&T and N.C. Central University are working together to determine how the human body can get the most benefit from those compounds.

UNC-TV will air a report on the research tonight (December 18), on “North Carolina Now” at 7:30 p.m. But if you want to watch it now or any time, just click here.
