   I don't know if it will remove metals from your body, but it might
remove a lot of people from your immediate vicinity when you pass gas.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but enough sulfur amino acid
supplements will keep everyone away. :-)

    So true!  You've put your finger on something that I hardly ever
see mentioned.  Yes, if you eat a LOT of garlic it's possible to smell
like pizza, but the problem is that most people don't eat that much.
They eat just enough to get the "hint of sulfur compound breath" which
is not identifiable as garlic at all-- it just smells like the world's
worst bad breath.

   Your sig quote is unusually appropriate this time.
