Another Reason to Eat Garlic

While the article says the study was small, and a week isn’t very long, the preliminary results are certainly encouraging. In this brief study scientists were able to measure the marker for a carcinogenic process in urine tests. Those individuals that consumed 5 grams of garlic had the lowest level of this marker. The article indicates that a clove of garlic ranges between 1 and 5 grams.

This study is similar to the research done on raw foods that showed that garlic inhibited the growth of all the cancer cell lines it was tested on. I don’t know about any of you, but this study encourages me to continue to eat my garlic at least twice add in addition to using it in our food.


  1. Ha! Like we needed another reason. ;-)

  2. Lalo,

    Well you know I didn't, but I thought others may. ;-)
