Cold Comfort

Cold Comfort
by Gabriel Constans

Garlic is truly the patient’s best friend. It helps cleanse the throat, sinuses, nose, and lungs. It has been used to ward off werewolves, vampires, and “the evil eye,” and has been praised as a cure for every calamity imaginable. Some people believe that if you eat or drink enough garlic, you will live forever: Of course, you may live alone, due to its strong smell.
