  • People with weakened immune systems, children, pregnant women and seniors should avoid unpasteurized cider and fruit juice. Pasteurization is a heat-treatment process that kills harmful bacteria by subjecting food to a very high temperature for a specific length of time. Check the label to make sure your cider is pasteurized.
  • Feeling nauseous? Research suggests that ginger may help relieve nausea after surgery and chemotherapy.
  • Ginger contains compounds called gingerols that may have anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting effects. In lab studies, gingerols slowed the growth of colorectal cancer cells and caused ovarian cancer cells to self-destruct. While these are exciting results, scientists need to do more research before we can know if gingerols have the same effect in humans.
