Has anyone purchased this fruit and then found out that there are some health risks associated with it? I did some research for recipes and then found out that the fruit has some disturbing side effects when eaten in conjunction with certain health issues and/or medications. If anyone has tried this fruit and noticed any health problems, what were they?
A lot of times, the experts leave us believing something is harmful. I find it hard to believe the amount of starfruit consumed by an average American could do much damage. They are quite expensive and hard to find here. Not a daily item on the dinner table.
