Women consuming a high intake of garlic, which was not quantified, had 10% less breast cancer, although this was not statistically significant, compared to women who had a low intake of garlic according to a 2006 study from Milano, Italy which used data from an integrated network of Italian and Swiss case-control studies.
(Subjects were simply asked if they had a low intake, moderate intake or high intake of garlic.)
