Garlic has long been touted as a health booster, but it's never been clear why this herb might be good for you. A new study done by the University of Alabama appears to shed light on why garlic may protect the body against various cancers.

Researchers show that eating garlic appears to boost body's natural supply of hydrogen sulfide. They extracted juice from the garlic bought at a local supermarket and added small amounts of the juice to human red blood cells. The cells immediately began emitting hydrogen sulfide.

The power to boost hydrogen sulfide production may help explain why a garlic-rich diet appears to protect against various cancers, including breast, prostate and colon cancer, said the study authors. Higher hydrogen sulfide might also protect the heart, according to other experts.

The downside - the concentration of garlic extract used in the latest study was equivalent to an adult eating about 2 medium-sized cloves per day. And that is almost unheard of in the western society, such as USA where people's big concern is that it can make their breath and sweat smell like garlic.

But in countries, such as Italy, Korea and China, where a garlic-rich diet seems to be normal thing, the consumption is as high as 8 to 12 cloves per day.

While that may sound like a lot of garlic, it isn't hard if you use it every time you cook or making a habit of snacking on garlicky dishes like hummus with vegetables.
