Whole food(herbal medicine) used as medical treatment,  linking health benefits in prevention, management and treatment of diseases has induced much interests in today renowned scientists.

Many researchers has raised question of quality of the herbs because geographic differences, time of grown and harvest, etc. may effect their's potency. I do believe, these questions can only be answered by experience herbalists.

Garlic (Allium sativum) is a species in the onion genus, belonging to family Amaryllidaceae, native to central Asia. It has been used popularly in traditional and Chinese medicine in treating common cold and flu to the Plague, blood pressure cholesterol levels, natural antibiotic, etc.

Lung cancer is defined as a condition of the abnormal growth of the cells in the lung's tissue. Most common form of primary lung cancers are derived from epithelial cells. In Us, Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths, causing 158,683 people deaths, including 88,329 men and 70,354 women, according to 2007 statistic.

Recent study suggested that garlic may be used as chemo prevention and treatment of lung cancer. 

According to the study by Medical Research Center, College of Medicine allyl sulfur compounds and garlic extract found in garlic exhibited anti non small cell lung cancer cell lines effects through interference on tumor cell division and tumor cell proliferation.

Benzo(a)pyrene-induced precancerous carcinogenesis in human lung cells, oil-soluble organosulfur compounds in garlic induced suppression of cell proliferation, cell cycle regulation, attenuation of ROS formation, inhibition of DNA damage, after administration.

The examine of association between raw garlic consumption and lung cancer, a case-control study conducted between 2005 and 2007 in Taiyuan, China, showed that compared with no intake, raw garlic intake is associated with lower risk of development of lung cancer with a dose-response pattern.

In fact, the Epidemiologic data collected by face-to-face interviews using a standard questionnaire among 1,424 lung cancer cases and 4,543 healthy controls also supported the negation of garlic intake and lung disease and suggested that garlic may potentially serve as a chemopreventive agent for lung cancer. 

Dr. Yang GQ, the lead researchers at the 107th Hospital of the People's Liberation Army said, "black garlic extract (BGE) could have significant inhibitory action on the growth of lung cancer Lewis cells. The combination of BGE and radiotherapy (by 60Co gamma) significantly induced Lewis cells' apoptosis in G2/M stage".

Whole food garlic in reduced risk and treatment of lung cancer probably is due to the effect of its' phytochemicals. Adding a portion of garlic in your diet is beneficiary for increased protection against  lung cancer development.
