More prescription drugs are on the market that can interact with grapefruit juice with potentially serious effects including sudden death, ...
"Taking one tablet with a glass of grapefruit juice is like taking 20 tablets with a glass of water," ...
Of the 85 known drugs that interact with grapefruit, 43 can have serious side-effects, including sudden death, acute kidney failure, respiratory failure, gastrointestinal bleeding and bone marrow suppression in people with weakened immune systems.
The authors noted that all sources of grapefruit — the whole fruit or 200 mL of grapefruit juice — and other citrus fruit such as Seville oranges (often used in marmalade), limes and pomelos can lead to drug interactions.
The thing that bothered me was that its like they were trying to show that fruits were bad not that those certain 85 medicines are dangerous.
Apparently this is old news but the way they present it, fruit are bad and medicine is good.
