STUDY: GARLIC EXTRACT CUTS SOFT PLAQUE IN ARTERIES. Catch: “The research was funded by a garlic extract maker.” Plus: “My advice: fix your diet first. Cut out sugar and refined foods. Eat more fruits and vegetables and fewer processed foods. Maybe garlic extract helps. But it is not a substitute for healthy eating. Also, do weight lifting. More muscle mass will raise the rate at which you burn calories even when sitting still. Pumping iron provides other benefits too. Pills aren’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.”

Well, not yet, anyway. I recommend following Taubes and Rippetoe in the interim.

UPDATE: Link was bad before. Fixed now. Sorry!
