Prior to this, garlic was something that belonged to the kitchen - in my head at least, but after reading articles that talk about garlic's benefits, I now know better! Many say that garlic can also prevent cancer, but how true is this? as per the article of New Hope Unlimited, an alternative cancer treatment center in Arizona, possibly, garlic may help prevent cancer because of its antibacterial properties and its ability to block substances that cause cancer, help with DNA repair, and cut down cell proliferation. But still, there's no strong evidence pointing to it as a means to prevent cancer even if it has potential anti-cancer properties.
