Statin Takers Can't Enjoy Citrus Source of Vitamin C.

If you take a daily statin for high cholesterol, it's not recommended you chow on gorgeous grapefruit like you see here.  Some enzyme in the citrus interferes with the way the drug is metabolized, and the results are not salutary.  Too bad: these big, juicy, tasty, plump citrus beauties grow free and wild in our back yard.  You're welcome to have a taste, but only if your primary care physician gives you the pink light.
