Day Ten's Writing Challenge is:
"A Fruit you Dislike & Why"
It has to be Grapefruit.
Who the hell likes this strong tart fruit?
Many people say it's good for you, but they don't know that grapefruit and its juice can be dangerous if you're on medication. It's been proven to raise the potency of some drugs three times!
Such drugs for for lowering cholesterol, some painkillers, sedatives, blood-thinners, antibiotics, and many others can be affected by eating or drinking grapefruit. It may not be fatal, but it sure can cause nasty side effects.
So if you're one of the few that actually like Grapefruit, please double-check with your doctor if your prescriptions are safe with grapefruit consumption.
Now that I'm on anti-rejection medications, I cannot have grapefruit, which is perfectly fine by me.
