It still does wonders for the breath

Thank God it still tastes so good: 

Garlic may be good for a lot of things -- spicing up your diet, for sure -- but it seems to be no good at all at lowering your cholesterol.

After conducting one of the most elaborate studies yet on garlic's effect on cardiovascular health, scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine said Monday that they could find no benefit in terms of reduced levels of LDL cholesterol, the "bad" form linked to heart disease.

Most people live by certain food rules. My top three are: 1) Chocolate is good; more chocolate is even better. 2. Cheese! 3) There is no such thing as too much garlic.
