However, a phytonutrient called diallyl sulfide DAS, one of the sulfide compounds that give garlic its characteristic smell, can inhibit the carcinogenic effects of PhIP.
Now a potent-smelling component of garlic oil called diallyl trisulphide DATS may help "release protective compounds to the heart," stated the researchers, who presented their findings on Wednesday at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions in Orlando, Florida.
Garlic oil may protect your heart against damage, compound called allicin linked to cardiovascular health Diallyl trisulphide (DATS) may help 'release protective compounds to the heart' Monday, November 21 2011, 10:11 AM A potent-smelling component of garlic oil called diallyl trisulphide (DATS) may help release protective compounds to the heart.
According to the boffins, garlic has no flavour until the cell walls are broken, and when the cell walls are broken, the enzyme alliinase is released, which reacts with a precursor compound, alliin, to form diallyl thiosulfinate and other thiosulfinates the pongy and tasty side of the garlic.

In the study researchers from the Emory University School of Medicine were examining treatment options for cardiac patients, and their findings suggest that the treatment of hydrogen sulphide gas -- which is considered unstable and dissipates quickly -- could possible be replaced with injectable diallyl trisulphide, which helped reduce the amount of heart tissue damage by 61 percent.
"We see that diallyl sulphide can temporarily turn down the function of mitochondria, preserving them and lowering the production of reactive oxygen species."
