Why, oh why, Beachcoma in the time of these people's needs do you have me laughing OL over here?!?!
Too much garlic -- good question, here's where I usually turn to Peterson's Field Guides: (reaches into 'library' -- bookshelf in the kitchen,
ahem, follows index to pg 36, one sentence warning
, mind you there's usually numerous 'warnings' for herbs, this is far from controversial
The essential oil extracted from the bulbs is extremely concentrated and can be irritating.
on the edit: I really should find these beneficial properties page somewhere online, it's amazing what this does for you, and it's being tested
throughout the world for numerous conditions... wow... everytime I read about garlic... in the uses
listing per herb in this book (Medicinal
Plants & Herbs) there's usually a couple of sentences, paragraphs average, this is something else for garlic...
Petersons Field Guide @
Amazon for $9.50 (before shipping)
Garlic @ Wiki
Wiki really should chill in their warnings page, I know, I know, you can go in and write something "else" but I've trusted Peterson's for over 30
years since it's a 'respected' field guide for those into 'nature' -- Wiki does go on about how it's beneficial and have one line in their
warning where it says it's not 'damaging' in the long run...
