I just received my new edition of Anticancer. In it the author refers to a study which indicates that soy products can interfere with the effectiveness of Taxol. He states that further research is needed, but recommends not cosuming soy for 4 or 5 days before and after a Taxol treatment.

    Thanks for sharing this. I would avoid grapefruit, too (grapefruit tends to block the elimination of many drugs).
