Garlic Reduces Cancer Risk
April 21, 2010
Eating garlic reduces cancer risk, new
study seems to show - In a recent study, researchers showed that
eating garlic causes the body to make less
of a common cancer-causing substance.
It is known that processed meats and food cooked at high temperature
produces nitrates. The body then converts the nitrates through a
process called nitrosation into substance that is toxic to the body.
The researchers saw that eating more garlic reduces the amount of these
chemical markers for cancer showing up in urine samples. Although the
exact mechanism of how garlic works is unknown, they concluded that eating garlic
can reduce the risk of cancer.
This is good news for those who love to eat garlic.
