How long until hit pieces come out against garlic in the US press? “Garlic causes heart attacks”, “Garlic linked to hate crimes and Trump”, etc...🤷‍♂️

How about this one: "Revealed: Trump wears SS uniform when planting garlic at Mar A Lago, gives the Nazi salute after watering it in?"

So pleased with this great news. We are garlic eaters in Greece and many dieticians insisted to consume as.much as possible as prevention during the peak of the pandemic. Now, this! It has a double benefit especially for those that had been vaccinated. Thank you for your continuous work. I have spread your work around to colleagues which I hope they follow you closely as I do.

God bless.

Natural therapeutics, even those that have robust science supporting them, have always been at the fringes of mainstream medicine - it seems they are being actively *removed* from the outskirts. To think a handful of simple vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, all with existing or emerging evidence, could have been recommended or supplied by public health.... It's criminal. But just illustrates what we've always known about the corruption of health and medicine. Thanks for this 👍

I love fresh organic non China raw garlic, been eating 3 cloves a day for years. My Dad thought it would be funny to feed it to me as a kid, little did he know he started a life long habit, that’s keep me out of the allopathic sick care realm. God gave us absolutely everything we need to stay healthy and garlic is my favorite! That and purple onions that is, lol 😂. Hail the Stinky rose!

Any food high in sulfur helps our cells build an exclusion zone of charge-separated water, which can also help us mitigate the effects of EMF: https://romanshapoval.substack.com/p/water-insulates-emf

So eating onions would help also? Are they better cooked or raw? What about leaks? Chives? I quite like a raw red onion in slices.

Expand full comment

Great question Bacca. Yes onions would work as well. They have more sulfur when raw, however this can be rough on some people's digestion as leaky guts can't always handle the full potency until they are sealed and healed. Red onion is even better - has quercitin, a potent antioxidant.

Very interesting & well written🍻 There's more than a couple of reasons why Covid lockdowns kept everyone indoors.

For MEDICINAL or Wow! Hot Garlic. - use a micro-plane zester, let sit a few minutes, consume raw, mixing bits into a mouthful of food. Or, as you will fire breath. Effective preventative for social engagement and viral replication?

What I found "researching" ... micro plane or otherwise puree very fine then let sit for 2 min to 10 min (or longer, sources vary) for enzyme activity to develop the "active" properties. use raw or add after cooking and cool down as heat breaks down "active" properties. A teaspoon of micro planed garlic puree weighs about 5 grams - ~a gram per ml. In the animal study below the lowest dose tested (0.1 g/kg body weight/day) for 28 days, it showed significant deterioration in liver function tests (LFT's) though both the 0.1 g/kg body weight/day and the second lowest .25 g/kg dose no showed morphological changes in the liver over the 28 days.

For a person weighing 70 kilograms / 154 pounds the lowest dose tested, 0.1 g/kg body weight/day, which showed significant deterioration in liver function tests would be a 7 gram dose of fresh garlic puree per day

Garlic hepatotoxicity: safe dose of garlic

S V Rana 1 , R Pal, K Vaiphei, K Singh


PMID: 16910057


Information on the effect of garlic on the liver and optimal dose of garlic to avoid liver damage is not known. This study was planned to determine the safe dose of garlic. Male wistar rats (110-170g) were fed fresh garlic homogenate (FSH) orally in three different doses (1.0, 2.5 and 5.0 g/kg body weight/day) daily for 28 days. Liver histology, serum transaminases, bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase were estimated at 0, 14, 21 and 28 days in control and experimental animals. 1.0, 2.5 and 5.0 g/kg body weight/day of garlic showed significant (P<0.001) deterioration in liver function tests (LFT's) after 21, 14 and 7 days respectively. A 1.0 g/kg body weight/day dose of garlic was associated with marked histological damage in liver after 21 days. Therefore, three lower doses of garlic (0.1, 0.25 and 0.5 g/kg body weight/day) were given orally to another group of similar rats to determine the safe dose of garlic. LFT's were serially measured and animals were sacrificed on the 29th day of experiment. All three lower doses showed significant deterioration in the LFT's values of animals after 28 days of feeding the freshly prepared garlic homogenate. Both doses of garlic i.e. 0.1 and 0.25 g/kg body weight/day were associated with normal histology of liver, but 0.5 g/kg body weight/day dose of garlic showed morphological changes in the liver of one animal. Therefore, the present study suggests that garlic with high dose has the potential ability to induce liver damage and low doses (0.1 or 0.25 g / kg body weight/day) are safe doses of garlic.

Agree! My other favorite is baked for hours @170 F. in toaster oven until it is dehydrated, & golden to cedar brown. A single clove crumbled is enough for a meal if you love garlic. It's potent yet the flavor is excellent. Stores for ages without losing its kick.

Hi, Walter. I saw a TV commercial recently regarding "rare" ATTR-CM and an available treatment from P f i z e r. The reference to amyloid in the fine print made me think of all the work you've done. You may also wish to do a Google Trends search for the term "ATTR-CM" for the past 5 years as well. (Granted, consider the trustworthiness of the source. History is alterable.) Thank you and peace be with you. I apologize that this comment is not directly related to the Friday Hope topic. I wasn't sure how else to reach you.
