>The [Positive] Effects of Garlic Bread on Family Interactions

In a 2000 study titled Effects of Garlic Bread on Family Interactions, Dr. Alan Hirsch, neurological director of The Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation reported that the smell of garlic bread enhanced positive family interaction by 68.4 percent, while the taste of it increased pleasant communication by a staggering 99.4 percent. If you’d like to test out this theory, here’s the official (finger-licking) recipe from the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
