The Juice Mix That’s Killing People

This podcast is useful as it outlines the actual biological activity created by a glass of grapefruit juice.  what it does is appear to suppress an enzyme that is tasked with eliminating incoming biologicals.  A case in which the expected drug uptake was a mere 15% nicely jumped to sixty through one hundred percent.

The take home is that any drug needs to be suspect and used carefully in combination with grapefruit juice.

WE also have the fact that the rinds are also a source of natural quinine as well.  All this tells us that the grapefruit is a powerful medical tool and needs to be used carefully.
