Manto Tshabalala-Msimang,

South African health minister, has frequently questioned the use of anti-retroviral drugs in treating HIV/AIDS patients, saying their side effects could be dangerous. Instead, she has recommended lemon and garlic. “Raw garlic and a skin of the lemon—not only do they give you a beautiful face and skin,” she said, “but they also protect you from disease.” She said a World Health Organization report released in May that said good nutrition may help to prevent AIDS lent her remedy credibility.
