Grapefruit Linked to Breast Cancer

A new study just linked grapefruit to breast cancer:

A study of 50,000 post-menopausal women found eating just a quarter of a grapefruit daily raised the risk by up to 30%.

The fruit is thought to boost levels of oestrogen - the hormone associated with a higher risk of the disease, the British Journal of Cancer reported.

Is "loose" a verb at all? In "Let loose the dogs of war", it's an adjective. You could say "I loosed my bowels", or "Inga loosened her bodice". uh - where was I? Something about grapefruits...
