30 Bananas a Day!

I was accustomed to eating a fair amount of garlic.  I am rarely sick and associate the two.

I would like to know if there are those who formerly ate garlic, no longer do now, and have they noticed any difference in how many colds, flu, etc.

Basically, it's like eating a medical drug. Oh~

Food = food. Medical drug = medical drug.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. To us, a ripe red apple entices. To a tiger, a gory red carcass is enticing.

So, in seeing an article that sings the praises of garlic in the November, 1978 issue of Reader's Digest, I wonder what is at the heart of it. Magazines usually don't devote their space to something without a commercial angle unless there is an overriding reader interest. But let's presume this article is simply an effort to present a topic of general interest which they sincerely feel will benefit their readers.

When we get into the article we find that garlic is praised for about everything except its food value. In fact the windup is that garlic is a "flavoring agent," a condiment. But in between we find it is quite toxic (not by the tenor of the article but by some of its uses as an antibiotic and an insecticide). It was noted that its juice can be used as an antibiotic to kill a culture of bacteria in just minutes.

We organic gardeners have long known that we can protect our gardens well by planting garlic amongst some of the rows. Also, it is suggested that the juice of garlic can be used for killing mosquito larvae, aphids, houseflies, caterpillars, etc.

But we of life Science recommend that you not eat garlic because of its poisonous qualities. To be sure, the mustard oil of garlic is the sole ingredient for which it is recommended. And just as surely, it is a poisonous indigestible oil that plays havoc with the human constitution just as does the capsicum of hot peppers, the nicotine of tobacco, the solanine of the nightshade family or any of the myriad of other poisons of popularity referred to as herbs.

There will be a day when garlic and other plants bearing poisons will be recognized for what they are and shunned rather than praised.

he solanine of the nightshade family

can we eat tomatoes, or are they toxic too?

tomatoes are currently my fav... but i am willing to change that if necessary.

not the leaves, roots or unripe .. ;)

Acute solanine poisoning can happen from ingesting green or sprouted potatoes or green tomatoes with symptoms including cramps, diarrhea, dizziness and sleepiness.

The roots and leaves of the tomato plant are poisonous. They contain the nerve toxin solanine which interferes with the body's ability

Hippo is saying: eat in such a way that you won't need medicine, that it becomes needless. 
garlic it's like a medicine.

Bwahaha, I see some major editing has been going on here. Nothing wrong with that, but now my mangled posts make it look like I dunno English. Anyway, the case against garlic is pretty clear enough.

PS   garlic is not 'food'   :)  pungent allicin

seems like you lack an understanding of how it is not part of what we do here and why.

you are treading dangerous ground by justifying stuff we DO NOT promote. ;)

garlic 'delicious' ...  no

oh and to answer the question again and more direct no flues or colds at all since doing 811. before they would come and i would use garlic but the harms outweighed the benefits.  (burned skin foul gas horrid body odor ulcers)

hehe what i replied to (promotion) is gone.  just for clarity i am not responding to the original poster in the first 1/2 here.    ;)

i was that sort of person never eating garlic and eating only when sick

sure it kills stuff but i was getting better in spite of by self healing

natural hygiene changed my life ,  down with garlic now!   i am thriving more than i ever have and no need for that toxin

Garlic is an irritant. Here's an analogy to understand the effects of garlic:

Like turpentine, it removes paint on your skin. If you do not have any paint to remove, then it will burn and irritate your skin. this is what happens in your intestines.

Those who eat the SAD diet may actually benefit from the expulsive and irritating effects of garlic, since they need to get rid of the garbage that they consume.

But once you are cleansed by eating nature's diet then you no longer benefit from garlic.

Garlic is popular as "medicinal" in our society because the majority eat so badly.
