Hi Dusty,

Quite correct. I take statins, and it is dangerous for me to eat grapefruit or to drink grapefruit juice. I understand that something in the grapefruit inhibits the action of the statins, but they remain in the blood and then when the next dose is taken it doubles up with the first one. Could be nasty - so I avoid grapefruit.

Wow that's interesting....

Just like how orange and yogurt don't go very well :eek:..The mixture tends to curdle in your stomach which is not good..
