According to media reports, the price of garlic in China has increased 4 times, on average, while in some regions, the price has increased by 15 or even 40 times !
Apparently, the reason for the increase is the popular belief that garlic can keep away swine flu.
Though it's not scientifically proven, you can try it. Even if it's not efficient in this respect, at least we know garlic is very good for a lot of other health problems.
For the entrepreneurs out there, now it's a good time to export garlic to China :)
