My grandfather (93-years-old) eats a clove of garlic a day, and is probably the healthiest person on the planet. He swears by it. I think that's why I like it so much; it's genetic at this point.Well I love garlic, but even I have a limit for how much raw garlic I can take. Also the sauce was kept bottle up in a container for a few hours, so I think I genuinely inhaled an abnormal amount of garlic fumes.
Sad but true story, a couple of years ago, while he was living with his wife and her daughter, the latter two both caught COVID. Both were hospitalized, and while the daughter made it through, my grandfather's wife passed away. But until they were both hospitalized, my grandfather cared for them, with no PPEs or anything (he didn't know it was COVID,) and never got so much as a fever or cough. He actually tested negative for infection which even the doctors were surprised by given his close and constant contact with two infected people over several days.
Say what you want about garlic; it kills COVID, and you should put some respect on its name. Now go make another batch of aglio olio (looked it up, looks fucking delicious,) and garlic the SHIT out of it. Hell, sell it alongside the Moderna and Pfizer COVID vaccines; I'd rather eat that than get my booster shot!
