Garlic Banned From Grocery Store

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The recent problems with imports from China has prompted one grocery chain to stop stocking garlic and other fresh food products from China.

In 2006 the U.S. imported 138 million pounds of fresh garlic. American growers only produce 5 percent of the world's total supply of garlic. China is the number one supplier with 66 percent!

Garlic is one of the most healthful foods available.

It's time to buy American grown garlic or even better, grow your own. Garlic is very easy to grow in the average backyard garden.
