Garlic may treat painful osteoarthritis--study

Findings of the new study sheds light on the possible effects of allium-rich diet in protecting against hip osteoarthritis, but also show the potential for using compounds found in garlic to develop treatments for the condition, which until now is limited to painkillers and hip replacement surgery.
