Garlic does nada for cholesterol

Speaking of flatluence, that's about all volunteers assigned to garlic treatment got after six months of daily garlic sandwiches. That and bad breath plus bad body odor. What they did not get was any change in their cholesterol levels compared to the control group who ate the garlic-free sandwiches.

Thank heavens, I can't bear my garlic supplements. I accidentally ordered garlic on my last mail order vitamin load, and worse yet, it was a buy two get three free deal. Unbearably odiferous burps--and the cat bit into one that rolled onto the floor, adding garlic to old fish fumes on her breath. I'm just going to jettison the entire lot.
