LONDON, Ontario (UPI) — More than 80 common medications interact with grapefruit — about half with serious complications, including death, Canadian researchers say....
The study, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, said 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.
“Taking one tablet with a glass of grapefruit juice is like taking 20 tablets with a glass of water,” Bailey said. “This is unintentional overdosing. So it’s not surprising that these levels go from what we call therapeutic to toxic.”
Comment: By the way, the problem is not with grapefruit. God did a wonderful job creating grapefruit. The problem is that the drugs are man-made and artificial, so they may not be compatible with what God has created.
Relate this to the traditions of men, which are often incompatible with the laws of God.
