THE CAUSE IS OVER CONSUMPTION OF GRAPEFRUIT
According to the news in the British Express newspaper, the clot occurred due to the woman’s excessive consumption of grapefruit.
According to research, Grapefruit juice, by blocking the action of an enzyme called CYP3A4, which breaks down the birth control hormone estrogen, increased coagulation levels, that is, the blood’s tendency to clot.
THE RISK INCREASES FROM DAY 3
Grapefruit juice breaks down very slowly, which means it has a cumulative effect when consumed daily.
Thus, starting from the third day, the patient’s estrogen levels increase many times over normal and cause an increased risk of clots.
