1. Beneficial if taken raw:-

Garlic is good for you if you take it cooked. It is more beneficial for you if you take it raw.

2. Beneficial Against The Growth of Tumors:-

Lung cancer is characterized by the growth of uncontrolled formation of cells that grow in the tissue of lungs often described by the term “tumor: It has been found that if there is some tumor taking place on skin and we apply garlic juice on it, the tumor growth is likely to get controlled. As lung cancer is associated with an internal organ (Lung) of the body, we can’t physically apply garlic but at least we can eat it up. The juices are best absorbed in body and thus it will 100% show a positive kind of effect.

3. The Ability To Block Formation of Cancer Causing Substances:-

It has rather been seen that garlic has the ability to block the formation of cancer causing substances and if you consume it daily, your body becomes immune against the formation of such cancer causing agents which is why it can help you a lot in getting immune against cancer of lungs.

Just because garlic is found helpful in reducing risk of lung cancer, it does not mean that eating it all the time will make you immortal and rather excessive consumption of garlic can also lead you to side effects like a strong breath or body odor as well. Garlic otherwise, is bad for breath, but good for lungs.

Sulfur compounds get formed when you crush it or chop it. Such sulfur compounds are thought to be medicinal in nature. Even if you chew it raw, the volatile oils contained in it get breathed in and are mostly excreted via lungs, which prove to safeguard them against cancer or carcinoma of lungs and thus you can try garlic in order to safeguard yourself against cancer of the lungs.
