Your attitude about health may be compromised by popular press. I saw a report on some of the major news networks that states a warning against eating grapefruit while taking medication. Now we all have a vision of eating a grapefruit and for some of us it is bittersweet. For others it represents a step toward better health and fat loss. Others just enjoy the refreshing feel of citrus. In all of these cases we eat the grapefruit and we don’t feel as if we are breaking some innate rule of dietary restriction. You generally just feel like you are eating real food and that just doesn’t require any kind of warning about the contraindications of eating fruit. Shouldn’t it be a warning against taking medication while eating grapefruit? Let’s take a look at the reality of the warning. First they assume that you are taking medication. Then they make you feel as if medicine is first and food is second in order of importance. Keep in mind that anyone taking a medication that contraindicates a food should be warned accordingly and then really take a look at the health attitude of the popular press. A better approach is to think about nature first and pharmacy much later. Be careful about letting the collective consciousness degrade into a world of medication as a first reaction to anything that interupts your innate intelligence.
