What's the deal with grapefruit?

I know some people taste it and some people don't, but grapefruit (and grapefruit juice) tastes like bile to me. Seriously. I just took a small bite of a grapefruit and my mouth has this foul flavor stuck in it. But other people love it. What's the deal?

Plus, grapefruit interferes with one of my medications. I mean, what is that about? How on earth does grapefruit have some kind of secret power or something to jack up some medication? Kevin can't eat it either for the same reason.

So poor Theo is a guinea pig. We got some grapefruits in our CSA basket and I've cut one up and covered it with sugar and am about to give it to him. Does adding sugar negate the nutrition of fresh fruit? Probably, but that's just the kind of mom I am.
