What can you do with the greens? Make phyto-plastic? Store foodstuffs? Can they be eaten? There are a lot of demands for foods, and vegetables that can be used in other ways.

Just a very tiny piece of garlic in your dog's food repels ticks and fleas.

Will C - YA! And just think, it's legal! Probably have to burn incense to keep down the garlic smell. I mean I like garlic and its smell, but, you know, there are people who say, "I can't stand the smell of garlic! It makes me wanna' yak!" Food wimps. But getting blasted on garlic is a healthy high, no?

Didn't see the video yet, but always knew that in a regular diet, one begins to be resistant to mosquitos biting, rather it repels them and no it's not enough to repel people as one would think. Garlic in the diet regular like this will begin to turn gray hair to brunette or perhaps back to your original natural color. We used to use garlic in saltwater frozen fish foods for reef aquariums; as said it fights harmful bacteria and probably viruses too, or beefs up the constitution of the fish against disease. Just saying.
