You are also protecting yourself against cancer if you take garlic. Both garlic and onions have bioactive sulfur compounds that are effective at every stage of cancer formation. They are also effective at preventing cancer in the first place. Even the National Cancer Institute has published an endorsement of garlic saying that several studies have shown reduced risk of cancer due to an increased intake of garlic.
Some of the cancers that were included in the studies included: cancer, esophageal cancer, cancer of the pancreas, and breast cancer. It isn’t exactly clear what it is within garlic that is able to fight cancer so effectively. Some people think that is due to the extremely strong antibacterial properties of garlic.
Others attribute garlic’s ability to fight cancer to one of its other benefits, but one thing is clear, no matter if you’re trying to protect yourself from cancer or trying to treated, garlic is one of the most effective natural cures.
