Fruit Juice vs Soda - From NPR and Nutrition
I just read a fascinating article on NPR. In this article, NPR reports on a new study published in the journal Nutrition that compares the fructose content of fruit juice to that of common sodas. Some might be surprised to known that there is almost as much fructose in fruit juice as there is in soda. In fact, there is more fructose in Minute Maid 100% Apple Juice than Coke, Pepsi, and Dr Pepper.In this day and age when we are all hopefully trying to live healthier, please understand that just because something is "natural" it is not necessarily healthier. This is especially true for all those parents out there with young children, for those patients trying to lose weight and for those patient with diabetes. My simple solution: eat your fruit and drink water.
