Throughout history garlic has been the topic of many old wives' tales and folklores, from keeping vampires away to curing various ailments. There is some truth in these, as recent research has shown that the entire onion family, particularly garlic, does have some properties that destroy bacteria and protect against heart disease. Garlic has been cultivated in Central Asia for thousands of years. As early as 2000 BC, the Chinese were using it in their cooking.
