FYI - Grapefruit has bad interactions with many medications.

I see people on Spark talking about eating grapefruit, and I just happened to come across this article today from Good Housekeeping so thought I'd pass it on. :)

    My grampa LOVES grapefruit, and cannot eat it anymore b/c of how it reacts with his blood pressure meds. I couldn't believe it!

    Yeah, I've heard about grapefruit before but didn't realize it was that serious. It said it can also happen with Seville oranges, Limes, and Pomolos (sp?).

    I love grapefruit. Luckily none of my meds are on the list. Thanks for sharing!

    I recently read an article on grapefruit that said eating half a grapefruit a day will fight against ticks and mosquitoes biting, but it also warned about the medication issue.
