Add Brussels sprouts to the running list of foods that don’t mix well with prescription drugs. A man from Scotland ended up in the hospital after eating too much of the vegetable last Christmas. Before you consider this a small victory for carnivorism, know that the man was on blood-thinners and the vitamin K in sprouts impacted the effects of his medication. But rest assured, the guy was stabilized (and probably healthier than ever after all that binge nutrient-loading). If you’re going to overeat anything tonight, make it the holiday ham or gingerbread cookies. [HuffPo, Earlier]
