Garlic has been grown since before recorded history and probably originated in central Asia. It was important in the culinary, medicinal and religious practices of many ancient civilizations, and is said to have been fed to the Egyptian slaves building the pyramids to promote strength.
There are an astonishing number of myths and beliefs concerning garlic, ranging from its ability to ward off vampires to its use as a folk remedy for high blood pressure and for fighting diseases from the common cold to cancer. Modern medical research does not discount the value of garlic...Stephanie Alexander ~The Cook's Companion~
Couldn't resist putting this little bit in...especially since I have recently finished the Twilight Series of books by Stephenie Meyer...all about vampires!!!
