Garlic may not be the best food to eat while you’re on a hot date, but it can significantly reduce your chance of developing colon cancer. That’s because eating garlic can unleash antibacterial properties that help prevent cancer cells from forming or multiplying.
It’s easy to add garlic to your diet, partly because it’s affordable and partly because there are so many dishes that benefit from its addition. For example, consider adding fresh garlic to your next homemade soup, chili or spaghetti sauce. If garlic isn’t quite your style, then scallions, leeks, onions, and chives can have the same effect. In the end, your colon will thank you for it.
