Grapefruit poses health risk to patients, warn scientists
Fruit may cause serious health problems in growing number of patients taking prescription drugsGrapefruit poses a potentially lethal health risk to increasing numbers of patients taking prescription drugs, experts have warned. The fruit contains chemicals that can interact with certain drugs, making them more potent. Adverse effects can include acute kidney failure, respiratory failure, internal bleeding and sudden death.While it is well known that some patients should avoid grapefruit, or grapefruit juice, the list of drugs involved has risen sharply in recent years.Between 2008 and 2012 the number of medications with the potential to cause serious harm by interacting with grapefruit increased from 17 to 43, according to scientists writing in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

Okay, but to be clear, it's the big pharma prescription drugs that are causing the health risk, not the grapefruit. If Western doctors didn't turn their noses up at thousands of years of history as well as research on natural treatments, they wouldn't be pumping their patients full of poorly researched man-made poisons.

Yes. Read a medication's warning label carefully. If an interaction with grapefruit juice is possible, the patient should stop drinking the juice until speaking with his or her doctor.

Frequently people combine dangerous food and drugs and put their health and sometimes their lives at risk. In most cases they are not aware of the problem that some medications and foods cannot be mixed, since many of these same medications and foods seem harmless when taken alone.

Yes, smilesun. I think it's important for people to look at natural medicine realistically and understand that some of what we consider food in the West are actually also traditional medicines in other parts of the world. These people aren't superstitious and these foods/medicines need to be treated with respect. Most notably the common and not so common spices we use are strongly represented by plant extracts that have known medicinal effects.

Probably not B.S. Some natural compounds in foods do act as medicines by inhibiting your body's ability to rid itself of other chemicals and you can get dangerously high buildups of these chemicals that can harm you. There are peer-reviewed articles in widely regarded publications documenting the interaction of fruit juices and grapefruit in particular with certain medications.
