Are juices good for you?

There is no doubting that juice is yummy. But are they good for you?

First, are they 100%? Is there added ANYTHING? Then, how fresh are they? Not just "when were they made?" but "how fresh were the ingredients?"

But even if the answers to all these questions are positive, is juice good for you?

Juice is the liquid from things, but what about all the gunk that's left over in the juicer? What's that?

That's the bit that contains most of the fiber and vitamins!

Fruit juice, carrot and beet juice all quickly add sugars to your system and your body raises insulin to combat them. Over load your system with too much of it and say hello to diabetes!

You are better off eating your vegies and fruit whole then drinking juice.
