Tom Brady Battling an Illness and…Vampires?
Tuesday was Media Day in Arizona ahead of the Big Game this Sunday. When it was Tom Brady's time at the microphone, he admitted something no New England Patriots fan wants to hear.
Tom Brady admitted Wednesday that he's sick. He has a cold. Brady told the media, "I've had it for four or five days. My kids got sick and my wife is pretty sick right now. I brought it unfortunately to Phoenix but I'll be fine. I'll be good. I'll be 100 percent. I'm not worried about it at all."
Tom went on to say, "It's been lingering, so I'm just trying to get some rest. A lot of garlic, old remedies, everything I can," I'm pretty sure a cold isn't going to affect "Tom Terrific."
I've never heard of using garlic as a cold remedy, but after doing some internet searching, go figure, he's right! According to WEBMD.com:
Garlic for Colds and Immunity
Like a number of other supplements, garlic seems to stimulate the immune system. Garlic may also help fight viruses. Also, there is some preliminary evidence that garlic may lower the risk of catching a cold. Garlic works best when consumed raw, either crushed, diced, or minced. Overcooking garlic may destroy important medicinal compounds and the enzymes necessary for it to be effective.However, more research needs to be done. Note: Garlic may be dangerous in people taking blood thinners.
