Yawn. Kyolic is a non-obscure internationally recognised garlic extract that has been marketed since 1975 in the USA and since 1980 internationally.While I'm sure there were obscure groups that made claims about garlic, how could they prove their claims? If they had been eating garlic from childhood, most people would just say well you have good genes or you drink wine and that's what did it.
Yeah that's it, it was the antioxidants in the wine, not the garlic. You and your childish friends made that exact statement to be, that it was the wine, not the garlic. Do you really think the pill industry wants people to understand garlic and all of its healing powers?
Just one example to refute your idiotic claims. Here is another:
"In 1858, none other than Louis Pasteur reported that garlic and onion were antibacterial. Later, Albert Schweitzer used garlic alone to treat amoebic dysentery in Africa. And in both world wars, garlic was used as an antiseptic to prevent gangrene."
Or more clinical:
"Effect of Garlic on blood lipids on Patients with Coronary Heart Disease"
Published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
That's Nineteen Eighty One in case you missed it.
And there are tons of others.
