Garlic: Does It Eat Up The Brain?

A few herbalists have caused a great stir amongst many people in regards to the use and consumption of garlic, stating that garlic eats up the brain. It has numerous benefits if taken under the proper circumstances, healing from a disorder. On a long- term basis, used for cooking, I would be very cautious.

A few herbalists have caused a great stir amongst many people in regards to the use and consumption of garlic, stating that garlic eats up the brain. Despite the numerous health benefits of garlic, scientific research showed that garlic shockingly impaired brain activity.

Well, these particular herbalists are correct, but the facts need some clarification. EXCESSIVE use of garlic over long period of times can damage brain tissue. In high doses, garlic can be toxic and destroy brain synchronization.

Garlic is a member of the Allium family of plants, the same class of plants that contain the chemical "mustard" which is used to manufacture MUSTARD GAS. So while alliaceous plants possess a plethora of beneficial health properties, they also have a downside or downfall.

In its natural (raw) state, garlic can transmit botulism, a neurotoxin that can cause paralysis of the muscles.

Common Alliaceous plants include:
  • Garlic (Allium sativum)
  • Onion (Allium fistulosum)
  • Leek (Allium odorum)
  • Shallot (Allium ascalonicum)
  • Chive (Allium scordoprasum)

Many people simply like cooking with garlic and onion (for taste purposes, of course) and this is understandable, and if you're hooked on garlic, then it would be wise to compensate, for the sake of your brain, with the use of certain herbs that have an affinity for the brain such as Gingko Biloba, Gotu Kola, Holy (or Blessed) Thistle, Lady's Slipper, etc.

Medicinally, garlic is a potent and effective antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial agent. Is it okay to consume capsules of pure garlic (perhaps with standardized allium)? I say sure, if you're attempting to overcome a sickness or illness, i.e. so-called cold, so-called viral infection, weakened immune (defense) system, etc.

Sparse consumption of garlic and other alliaceous plants is of no big concern in my opinion. Just simply don't consume great deals of them and often. If you do, then you're in jeopardy of damaging your own brain and impairing your cognition. The research has been done and is convincing.

However, simply put, all things in moderation!

Reasons to Stay Clear of Eggs

For many making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, cheese and eggs can be the hardest things to give up. In fact, a love for eggs and cheese in particular is often cited as one of the reasons people go vegetarian as opposed to vegan. It seems meat is easy to give up for some, while many can’t let go of the dairy stuffs. Recently, a Huffington Post blogger posted on “5 Smart Reasons to Eat Eggs,” with mention of the high protein content of the food, a possible reduced risk of cancer, and more. We’re here to tell you, Green Monsters, this advice isn’t so great for you – or for the animals involved in the egg industry. Here are 5 Reasons to NOT Eat Eggs:

1. Many studies show egg consumption actually increases the risk of certain types of cancers, including colorectal and bladder cancers. Check this out: “A case-control study done in Argentina found that people consuming approximately 1 1/2 eggs per week had nearly 5 times the colorectal cancer risk compared with individuals consuming less than 11 eggs per year. And, the World Health Organization analyzed data from 34 countries and determined that egg consumption was significantly and positively correlated with mortality from colon and rectal cancers in both men and women. Moderate egg consumption also tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer as determined by a case-control study of 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients published in the journal International Urology and Nephrology.” In other words, don’t risk it! There are so many egg alternatives out there that it’s silly to risk your health.

Vermont to Pass GMO Labeling!

Against the odds and the lofty wallets of Monsanto lobbyists, Vermont is soon to be the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling.

On April 16, with a vote of 28 to 2, the Vermont state senate passed a bill that makes GMO labeling mandatory for all foods sold in Vermont. It also identifies it as being illegal for GMO-containing foods to be labelled as “natural” or “all natural.”
