Dear Dr. Grace,
Garlic smells terrible for me. Is it really important for my health?

Dear Alexa,
Garlic is a plant in the allium family that is closely related to onions. Chopping, crushing or chewing garlic releases allicin, which is beneficial to health. Garlic can combat sickness, including the common cold because it boosts the immune system. Four cloves of garlic a day have been shown to reduce blood pressure and reduce cholesterol levels. Diallyl sulphide, a compound in garlic is a powerful antibiotic against intestinal infections.
