Garlic has a strong reputation in the history of food and preventative medicine. The first written reference to it showed up about 5,000 years ago, in Sanskrit. Chinese scholars had good things to say about garlic as early as 3000 B.C. Modern medical research is investigating the curative claims made for garlic and has confirmed many of them.
A regular diet of garlic lowers blood cholesterol and hypertension, soothes asthma, and counteracts artherosclerosis. And in its spare time, garlic, raw and added to salads, or cooked and added to other foods, is the secret ingredient in many a tasty dish.
