Garlic study: healthiness of fresh and processed

Posted:
If you're going to cook with garlic, go ahead and use the fresh stuff.  A new study suggests it's better for your health.

Researchers at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine fed lab rats two kinds of garlic: freshly crushed and processed.  Those that got the fresh garlic recovered better after a simulated heart attack.

Scientists think the heart healthy effect comes from hydrogen sulfide, which forms immediately after garlic is cut or crushed.
