The compound allicin, found in onions and garlic, is what accounts for their pungent smell. It also provides a cancer-protecting punch. It appears to be especially effective in fighting colon cancer. Allicin is a strong antibacterial and antiviral compound and it appears in research to keep carcinogens from affecting healthy colon cells. Be sure to include these two foods in your diet and include them often if you have a family history of colon cancer or have had it yourself!
