"In an 8-year study of middle-aged women, Curhan and Willett found that drinking grapefruit juice on a daily basis increased the risk of kidney stone formation by over 40%. "

Who would have thought that something like grapefruit juice, traditionally viewed as a healthy beverage, could have the potential to be so detrimental to one's health? Now that the question has been raised though, the doubts and painful scenarios will have kicked in, and an answer must be found. Preferably before breakfast.

Where does one look for this kind of information? Well, no doubt all over the internet. But where to find an answer that can be trusted?
