    Garlic is highly medicinal - it blocks the enzymes that allow viruses to flourish, it can lower bad cholesterol (LDL), and it can lower blood pressure. But, it’s no secret that garlic has quite the aroma. Garlic’s oils are carried in the bloodstream and circulated in the lungs; the odor can be exhaled by the body for up to 72 hours after eating it. To minimize garlic breath, drink a cup of whole milk, neutralizing the odor by 50%.
