My 82 year young mother has embraced raw and has been raw for a month and lost 15 lbs. Sometimes it's a challenge to get her to understand things and let go of long held concepts. My challenge today is that her MD told her not to eat citrus as it irritates the bladder and may be why she has some urinary incontinence. She wanted to give me her tomatoes and oranges b/c "the doctor said so". Has anyone heard of this? I don't want to tell her he's an idiot and why did he never steer her away from foods that gave her cardiac disease? Many thanks for suggestions.
