As far back as the clay-tablet or papyrus-scroll history goes, it records the virtues of garlic, as food & medicine. John Heinerman traces the fascinating history of the "stinking rose" through ancient & medieval times from Sumeria to Transylvania to Gilroy, California, where it is celebrated in an annual festival. And, as he points out, the therapeutic value of garlic is a good deal more than folklore: modern research has analyzed the herb's chemistry & shown the remarkable effects of its active ingredients on health, especially on the immune & circulatory systems. Dr. Heinerman examines the full range of garlic's exciting medical properties & roles in disease management, & how the reader can use them, & also provides a section of garlic-rich recipes that make full use of what he calls "the single greatest herbal tool which Nature has bequeathed to the human race."
