I had just posted a message about grapefruit and its juice.  When I read
that you had spoken about it, I deleted mine from my outbox.  I take a
BP med. that necessitates my never having anything to do with
grapefruit.

Hi Patti,

If people choose to either understand, or to get/stay ticked off at
me, the message I would wish them to come away with from that post is:

Were all grown ups here and I try to take everything I read with a grain
of salt. If I think it really has a bearing on my life/health I will do
separate research to try and find the truth. I don't think anyone here
is out to get anyone. We are just a varied group of people, we have
differing thoughts and such. And we all know that what effects one
person one way maybe totally different on someone else.

I don't think there is one person on here that hasn't felt hurt, step on
or other wise slighted by something that was said on here. But I chose
to believe that no one is really out to get me or hurt me and I let it
go. My revenge in life is to let the nasties slip away.

Doc I do get the pain thing. Been there too and most of the time I've
felt slighted was because I was in pain and felt someone was being harsh
with me. In reality they had no idea I was hurting and their comments
were taken to heart. So I blame the pain and move on.

I feel like I opened a can of worms.  I apologize.  What I wanted most of
all was some ideas on how to research the topic.  I know there are
well-informed people on this group and ones who have had personal
experience.  Even the 'urban legends' and 'they say' were worth
investigating.  I didn't quite know how to find the right combination of
words to search for answers.  I got some great ideas and thoughts from y'all
and found some info by using those words/combinations which I found in your
replies.  I appreciate all the help.  Thanks!

*Applauds*

I highly approve of independent research.

Even when I know I am right because I am a Leo and thus always right
*grin*, I would hope that people take the time to look stuff up on
their own.

Interestingly none of the BP medications I have been on over the last 20
years have had any mention of grapefruit.
DH has recently started taking cholestrol meds and isn't allowed grapefruit.

I think it's quite a new one, and it is specific to that chemical or
group of chemicals.  It is one of the 'idipines'.  It is just the
chemical, not the purpose.
