Food-Drug Interactions: Chicken or Egg?

8 Foods and Drugs That Interact

The WSJ has a front page piece about food-drug interactions, and how eating the wrong healthy foods–olive oil, fruits, vegetables–can interact with prescription drugs.

Not a word about how eating the wrong, unhealthful foods can cause the need for those drugs and their prescription to begin with.

But the most distressing thing about this piece, as one of the comments mentions, it implies “you need to stop eating healthy food and take the drugs, rather than stop the drugs and eat the healthy food.”

The matching of potential interaction is interesting: it looks like the image above.

But a diet of many of these foods can help replace the need for these drugs: more doctors should write free healthy recipes on prescription slips, and we’d need to prescribe fewer drugs.
