20 Weird Facts About the Human Body That May Leave You Scratching Your Head

8. You can eat garlic through your feet.

If you rub the sole of your feet with garlic, you’ll feel its taste and smell in the mouth after 30 minutes. It’s all because of allicin — an organic compound that is formed during the mechanical destruction of garlic. Allicin is able to penetrate through the cell membranes, travel through the bloodstream and reach the taste buds. That’s the reason why people who like to eat garlic not only have a bad smell from their mouths but also from their entire body — because the smell dissolves in the blood.
