As we age, we think we are supposed to “get” some disease. I say, “Let’s don’t get anything”. And if you already “got” something, let’s “get” rid of it! For that reason, I couldn’t go another day without telling you that just by eating garlic you can help prevent or decrease the possibility of getting the major chronic diseases associated with old age, such as stroke, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attacks, cancer, immune disorders, arthritis, and cataracts.
That’s a pretty bold statement from such a small little stinky bulb, but garlic works because it stinks. That stink comes from its most active ingredient, allicin, which minimizes the oxidation, inflammation, and other cell-destroying processes which cause those major diseases.
