back to the chopping block

They serve a lot of garlic over here, pickled, fresh, grilled, chopped, and so on. You can buy it by the sack, pre-peeled fresh often for less than the bulbs. At home I have always used an absurd amount of garlic and over here I have ramped up that usage to new levels. Now the NYTimes tells me I need to get to the 8-12 clove a day rate...

Unlocking the Benefits of Garlic - Well - Tara Parker-Pope - Health - New York Times Blog: "Now, the downside. The concentration of garlic extract used in the latest study was equivalent to an adult eating about two medium-sized cloves per day. In such countries as Italy, Korea and China, where a garlic-rich diet seems to be protective against disease, per capita consumption is as high as eight to 12 cloves per day."
