    My older neighbours insisted grapefruit aggravated their arthritis, but the only reference I could find was reactions to medications and grapefruit. Possibly they were on medication? Gone now, so I can't ask.

    I dare say that practically anyone on the planet can conceivably have a reaction of some kind to something in the vegetable kingdom. Examples that quickly come to mind are some folks' reaction to cilantro, which is reported to be genetic, and some folks' reaction to goats milk, which has a repulsive off-flavor. Cilantro taste soapy to us. A restaurant once put cilantro pesto on my plate, and I wanted to throw it on the floor and step on it...but my friend was happy for me to scrape it onto his plate! As for that ronky buck flavor in goat milk, it disappeared when our goat was bred, but immediately after she kidded the flavor was back. Could be something hormonal? Neither my daughters nor I could tolerate it, yet my husband and both sons noticed nothing unusual about it. In a world where some people dislike tomatoes or ice cream, I'm prepared to accept any complaints around food!
