25 Foods That Are Super Healthy

22. Garlic

This small yet incredibly potent bulb belongs to the allium family, joining the ranks of onions, shallots, leeks, and chives. Its sulfur compounds play a pivotal role in activating the body’s detoxification process, thereby preventing the formation of nitrosamines (present in deli meat’s nitrites), which can lead to DNA mutations and an increased risk of cancer.

For the prevention of esophageal, stomach, prostate, and colon cancers, incorporating garlic into your diet is advised, consuming around ten cloves per week, either fresh or crushed and cooked. Just remember to have some breath mints handy, as your friends may catch a whiff of your breath from a considerable distance.
