Grapefruit is one well known example. This simple and well loved food, grapefruit, interacts with many medical drugs.

Thousands of Australians unnecessarily suffering and dying prematurely every year:
This is because of alternative cancer treatments according to a special investigation by Dr Paul Willis, director of The Royal Institution of Australia.
Thousands of Australians may be dying from cancer each year because they are replacing conventional treatments like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery with alternative treatments in the hope they will be cured, the Royal Institution of Australia believes.
We are able to say that in Australia, the drop-off rate for conventional treatment is between three-to-five per cent, averaging at four per cent of people who are diagnosed with cancer,” Dr Willis tells SBS.
That figure represents the number of people who are diagnosed with cancer but do not follow through with conventional treatment like chemotherapy, radiation, surgery or a combination of all three when they opt for alternative medicine.
“As far as we know, there is no evidence to say that any non-conventional treatment for cancer will cure you or even alleviate your cancer. You may as well do nothing; in which case you greatly increase your risk of suffering or dying early from cancer.”
“When you calculate four per cent of 130,466 – the estimated number of new cancer diagnoses in 2016, there are more than 6,000 people who are not getting the appropriate treatment of their cancers.”
Last but not least; this wonderful Metaphoric Story “How the Romans (Cancer) invaded England,” shows why wacky diets & supplements don’t cure cancer.
