Garlic has a history of over 7,000 years of use in human culture and is native to central Asia. As well as being used for food, it has also been useful as a medicine, even as recently as World War I and World War II.
Some European cultures have been known to associate garlic with "white magic" or spiritual protection, giving rise to the belief that it will ward off vampires.
