Pathologist and Microbiologist Dr. R. Rehan Baig's  Response
dear arun, the best and easy way to reduce cholesterol is by swallowing 5 to 6 small bits of garlic on empty stomach. This old method was the secret of our ancestors health and now this method has been proved by modern scientific research. Do not chew as the saliva destroys the substance present in the garlic which reduces the cholesterol.
