The health giving properties of fresh garlic cannot be over emphasised.
Eat a clove or more of raw fresh garlic everyday and, so many claim, you will:
-Lower your blood pressure
-Reduce the risk of heart trouble
-Reduce the risk of cancer
-Reduce the risk of stomach ulcers
-Improve your auto immune system
-Ward off sore throats and colds
Needless to say you will smell of garlic. However, eating fresh parsley will reduce the smell; it is a small price to pay for improved health.
