When I recently released Savory Raw Dressings and Sauces: http://www.raw-food-health.net/Savory-Raw-Dressings-And-Sauces.html  I got a lot of questions about why I refused to add garlic to my recipes.
It's a vegetable, after all, so people generally figure it has to be harmless.
The side effects go far beyond the stinky breath, however, and most of the beneficial health claims are not well supported.
Read about raw garlic, and why you might want to reconsider its use, here: http://www.raw-food-health.net/Raw-Garlic.html 
Hope you enjoy.
