Poll : does regular consumption of citrus juice/fruit make you feel worse ?

Bloodborne body odor/halitosis : Does regular consumption of citrus fruit/juice make you feel more 'toxic' ?

Furanocoumarins in citrus fruits, especially abundant in grapefruit, is known to inhibit some of the cytochrome P450 group of enzymes, which are important for detoxification. Currently it is thought furanocoumarins do not inhibit FMO3 function, which has a similar function in humans as the CYP450 enzymes. Like those who have various FMO3 levels of deficiency due to genetics, the same can happen in CYP450 enzymes. Probably taking citrus fruits regularly coupled with being genetically 'deficient' (to some degree) in the enzymes it inhibits may make a person feel slightly 'toxic'. It is not known if deficiency the CYP450 enzymes would be responsible for any forms of systemic body odor.
