Notes for this study:
Based on the connections between inflammatory eicosanoids in the colon and colon cancer risk, ginger at 2g a day was investigated to see if its actions as a COX inhibitor (similar to aspirin and [curcumin]) was able to reduce eicosanoids.

Over a period of 28 days, 2g of ginger extract daily was able to reduce pro-inflammatory eicosanoids in the colon and theoretically confers protection against colon cancer or at least a reduced risk.
