The NASA Chief Engineer Larry Show

Aug 30, 2016

Health Matters still is amazed that anyone with any sense listens to our show. However, retired NASA chief engineer Larry promises us that he actually listens. We salute him and his lapse in judgment with this amalgam on medical marijuana, the cost of electronic medical records, some new information on suicides, and our favorite Florida beverage, grapefruit juice.

Tip: From the FDA, Seville oranges and tangelos affect the same enzyme as grapefruit juice, so avoid these fruits as well if you are on a medicine affected by grapefruit.
