The moment you hear or eat garlic, garlic breath becomes a concern for everybody.Due to this a lot of people avoid eating garlic and lose out on it's health benefits.
A clove of garlic a day keeps cancer away.....
Garlic has a very strong flavor, and it needs to be mixed with other foods in order to be enjoyed. The best way to eat garlic would be to add it in food while cooking it. Allicin gets distributed throughout the meal, providing you with the benefits of its anti-carcinogenic and antiseptic properties.
Make sure you peel the garlic before cooking it. Cooking garlic in its peel destroys its curative properties. Similarly, peeling the garlic days before and crushing and storing all the crushed garlic together to be used a little at a time may be very convenient as a time saver, but you lose many of garlic's potent health properties.
