Raw Garlic Consumption and Risk of Liver Cancer: A Population-Based Case-Control Study in Eastern China

Eating raw garlic regularly may help curtail the development of liver cancer.

This study explored the relationship between the consumption of raw garlic and the incidence of liver cancer in China. Researchers surveyed a total of 9,944 Chinese men and women for a period of 7 years. During the course of the study, over 2000 participants were diagnosed with liver cancer. 

Researchers discovered that frequent intake of raw garlic resulted in a decline in the risk of liver cancer. This study shows that fondness for raw garlic may help to ward off liver cancer.
