ok guys- I actually got adventurous- I just cut almost a bulb of garlic into littel pieces adn into teh blender with some water- in to the cup - and gulped it down- felt no burning in the throa but like brian sai some burning inside- almost some kind of pain- but only for a while- soon I was fine and am back on my computer as though nothing happened. Well I haven't flushed yet. Will let you know once I do. Keeping my fingers crossed!!
