And one more thing ...

Fruit juice contains a lot more sugar (and therefore more calories) and a lot less fiber than a whole fruit. Just as a quick f'rinstance, it might take ten or twelve oranges to make a single glass of orange juice. If you ate the oranges, you'd consume a pretty healthy quantity of whatever nutrients they contain, and it's highly unlikely that you could eat a dozen oranges in a day. Well, maybe you could, but you'd have to reduce your consumption of something else, which would mean a reduced calorie intake. With rampant obesity and diabetes affecting children under the age of FIVE, this would be a good thing.

Stumble It!
