FTFA: A three-year study at the University of Wales in Aberystwyth has shown that when cows are fed garlic, methane production is cut in half.

I don't recall garlic ever having that sort of impact on my digestive tract.

I have garlic farts that'll knoch a buzzard off a shiat wagon, so methane is reduced, however...........

I will fight any cow who tries to turn my Garlic and Green Olive pizza into a Green Olive pizza. I will fight them, defeat them, quarter them and hoist their upper hind-quarters on thin metal rods with alternating pieces of onion, bell pepper, tomato and mushrooms over a hot grill with mesquite smoking chips.

OK, so I just had a look at TFA's headline, DRTFA.

But this is Fark, nobody Rs TFA, and subby's headline does read like it's recommending garlic for dogs.

Garlic can't take even a little flooding for a long time. That's strike two subby, whachagonnado when the global flooding comes for you(r garlic patch)?

I hate these articles that can be summed up in one sentence and it is buried near the end of the article......................

When milk cows eat members of the onion family it makes their milk smell rank. I don't know how the onion family affects the flavor of beef cattle.

*chiming into chorus*

Subby, my dog wants everything, from grapes to chocolate - doesn't mean she's going to get them.  I prefer my dogs healthy & alive, thanks.

And if a bit of the garlic seeps into the meat, that's a win-win.

/except for the people who have to smell me after eating it
/screw it, that's their problem

Marry a woman who enjoys garlic as much as you do, and you'll both have a good time.

A heavy, heavy dose of garlic really feel like it impacts me physically. Love the stuff!

I thought hemp was going to save the world. Now, its garlic. I'm confused ..

Roasted garlic spread on sourdough toast with gruyere cheese, roasted red pepper and capers is uncommonly delicious.
 
2014-04-29 05:37:52 PM  
So subby has never had a dog, I assume.

This is why I like roasted garlic butter on my steak.

There is nothing better than roasted garlic cloves--in olive oil salt pepper. Browned in the oven. Omg good.

HairBolus: when cows are fed garlic, methane production is cut in half.

When milk cows eat members of the onion family it makes their milk smell rank. I don't know how the onion family affects the flavor of beef cattle.


It affects the flavor positively when minced fine and placed with coarsely ground black pepper and a bit of olive oil and rubbed gently into pieces of them a few hours before grilling

For Calgary garlic lovers:

The Garlic Clove

They make the best spaghetti carbonara I've ever had and you should expect to find about 12 cloves of garlic in any sauce that comes with your order. I've never had anything here that hasn't been fantastic.

And their Caesar is amazing, with little chunks of garlic at the bottom of the glass.

But you have to lock yourself away for two days after eating there, because the stink of garlic just oozes from your skin, not to mention the alimentary consequences it can have (I'm gassier than a blimp after eating there).

This is what happens when submitters are more interested in the headline than the content of the article. I could forgive it if Subby was funny, but here we are...

No kidding. I don't think they've thought this through.

I know it's National Geographic, where half the goal is to prove how well educated and worldly you are, but holy hell did that author ramble on about some pointless shiat before getting to the actual story.
