A new study shows that just drinking a common citrus juice along with taking cancer medication increases the efffectiveness of the cancer medication significantly.

Writes Fox News, "A new study from the University of Chicago Medicine revealed patients taking sirolimus receive more of its anti-cancer benefits if they drink a glass of grapefruit juice every day along with the drug. The drug-juice combination was so effective that patients who drank grapefruit juice obtained three times as many benefits than those who took the drug alone."

The story also explains that sirolimus is "a drug typically used by transplant patients to prevent rejection [and] has been found in previous studies to have anti-cancer properties as well."

Notes the article, "Ultimately, the results showed drinking eight ounces of grapefruit juice per day helped increase sirolimus levels by 350 percent."
