‘Onion brothers, why did you go out without me?' panted a little voice, and Toby caught sight of a boy in a white overall with a tuft of narrow, bristly leaves on the top of his head . He was holding a basket full of what looked like little white pearls. Toby immediately realised this was brother Garlic because of the smell.
‘We couldn't find you, brother Garlic. Where did you disappear to?' the Onions asked.
‘I had lots of things to do. First of all, I helped a girl who had the flu. I crept into her room and put a few white cloves of garlic on her pillow. The girl felt better, but when she saw the garlic she said sadly:
“I don't want to eat that garlic, it's too strong and bitter.”
“You don't need to eat the garlic,” I comforted the girl. “My phytoncides have already sorted out the microbes in the air, and your illness has gone away. Although it's a shame that you won't even eat even one clove of garlic. If my miraculous soldiers and vitamins got inside you, they would cleanse your stomach, liver, lungs and blood vessels of harmful microbes.”
“Granny tried to persuade me to eat garlic, but you're too bitter,” the girl confessed.
“Ask your mum to make you porridge with garlic, grated apples and honey. This medicine won't be bitter . Eat at least one spoonful a day and it will protect you from colds,” I advised her.
“My granny planted garlic in a pot with the house plants,' the girl said. ‘She probably wanted to help the plants get rid of microbes.”
“Of course, we can help plants just as much as people. That's why we are often planted among potatoes, tomatoes, cabbages and strawberries.”
Then I set off to another town to see a poor woman. Doctors had found a tumour in her stomach, and prescribed her some medicine. But the poor woman didn't have enough money to buy expensive medicines. So I told her that garlic contains selenium, germanium and zinc which can fight against tumours, and I started to make her better. Now she's well on the way to recovery.
Then I visited a children's hospital and banished dysentery, which is a type of severe diarrhoea. Next I helped an old man get his health back after a heart attack, and afterwards I went to the beauty parlour and helped get rid of dozens of corns and veruccas . On the whole, I had a lot to do,' Garlic concluded.
‘I would never have thought garlic could do so many things!' Toby said in surprise. ‘Why do people not use you that much?'
‘I wouldn't say ‘not that much': people have used me since ancient times. I helped the great Pharaoh Khufu save lives while the pyramids were being built, and I helped Tsar Solomon cure people with epilepsy. I taught Hippocrates to use anaesthetics and disinfect wounds. I have always helped both the richest Tsars and the poorest beggars.'
‘But what can people who can't eat you do? For example, my mum gets a sore tummy ..."
