I do like juice blends. I try not to give my kids juice but we were out to lunch and a blend came with the kids meal - I actually think it was pineapple, mango and grapefruit. Delish!
Here's the WebMD article on this new information, published yesterday:
Drugs That Interact With Grapefruit on the Rise Nov. 27, 2012 -- The number of drugs that can be risky when taken with grapefruit is on the rise, largely due to the influx of new medications and chemical formulations, a new study shows.
Thanks again Bill for bringing important information to our attention - I appreciate your participating here!
More here: Grapefruit juice blocks a special enzyme in the wall of the intestine...when that enzyme is blocked, it is easier for those medications to pass from the gut into the body, raising the blood levels of these drugs...high levels of some drugs can be dangerous and can lead to toxic side effects.
I thought this was interesting too: Amazingly, this remarkable food-drug interaction was discovered completely by accident over a decade ago.
