Does raw garlic destroy cancer cells

Been chewing raw garlic for tooth abscess. I also have a sinus infection. Chewing the garlic I feel ear pain. Read that oral cancer causes ear pain. Wondered if I am dealing with that? Would like any feedback. I'm 64.

If it were really that easy the cure wouldn't prove so elusive.

Quick fixes are sought more than seeking the cause.
It seems to me that, with any disease, the more money given and the more "research" being done to find cures, the more diseases are proliferating and yet I've heard no one addressing this fact. Food and/or spices had been medicine for improving my eyes, hearing and thinking ability. I read that spinach, turmeric and ginger attacks cancer cells. Maybe garlic could too but no one has reported it.

The problem is that all of our food is being engineered to last longer so what could have been remedies is now causing the health problems that the Fool and Deceive Agency claim they need research money to fix.

I don't know. But eating raw garlic is a good way to prevent any parasites, so that's good. :)

DUH...of course...my husband and I use toothpaste and antiseptic mouthwash. I also drink a TBSP of apple cider vinegar in the morning after breakfast before I brush.

Garlic has been thought to possess medicinal properties for centuries, and still does. The garlic we have now days has been 'domesticated', evidently there are no longer wild forms of the plant.

Multiple scientific studies indicate that garlic can lower cholesterol and triglycerides levels, improve the outcome of coronary heart disease, reduce high blood pressure, improve claudication (leg muscle cramps on exertion), prolong infant feeding time for breast nursing, reduce or cure the fungal infection of Athlete's foot, and reverse some middle ear inflammation. And, it can do much more. There may even be some value, in addition, for garlic in the potential reductions of certain cancers, especially those of the colon and stomach.

Thank you for your comments. I have read that garlic and yellow onions contain allicin which has medicinal properties you speak of.
We have a lot of "wild onions" growing throughout our yard and I have wondered if it would be beneficial to eat those. A problem is that our yard has been "infected" with bacterial spot and even though the extension office says it cannot be harmful to us I have wondered if it affects plants, grown in our yard, in a way that removes any nutritional benefits. It makes sense to me and the fact that I had increasing problems since we had eaten a lot of vegetables grown here. "Alternatively" provides confirmation. I am not familiar with how this site works so I don't know if you are able to read his comment.

Garlic has some potent antimicrobial properties meaning that it can destroy microbes and has some benefits for your immune system. Will the garlic destroy cancer cells? No. But a healthy immune system is constantly targeting cancer cells and destroying it yet you never hear much about this. In fact now there are some treatments for cancers like a melanoma which facilitates your own immune system in destroying the cancer cells.

Firstly you don't know whether you have cancer or not. All your symptoms can be due to your current conditions so there is no reason to assume oral cancer just yet. You should go back and speak to your dentist. Hopefully you have been using antibiotics for your dental abscess. If not, then go immediately to your doctor or dentist. You can then chew the garlic after completing the course of antibiotics.

On TV there are commercials about oral cancer and cervical cancer coming from the same virus. I had cervical cancer twenty-three years ago...yes, a healthy immune system can fight cancer and at the time the cancer was diagnosed we were eating a lot of food loaded with MSG so I was not only ingesting it but I was exposed to it in my husband's semen. MSG has been proven to be carcinogenic. Hidden sources are now multitudinous in our food supply including supplements and meds. I've been learning about this for twenty plus years and it is hard to avoid.

In addition I would like to thank you, Alternatively, for your comment. I had been on antibiotics for the abscess and your input here has helped encourage me to continue to be VERY careful of what I eat, trying to "eat to heal." A word of encouragement makes a BIG difference!
