Garlic use dates back to Old Testament times, when it was a favored food. Drawings of garlic from 3700 bce were uncovered in Egyptian tombs. Over the centuries, garlic has been used to ward off vampires, demons, witches, and evil beings and was thought to have magical properties. Medicinal uses date back to 1550 bce, when it was used as a remedy for heart disease, headaches, and tumors. It has also been used as an aphrodisiac to improve sexual performance and desire, and as a cure-all for everything from hemorrhoids to snake bites (1-4).
