Fruit juice isn’t a healthy choice here’s why:
Taken from the chapter on Boosting Your Immune System in my new 5th edition book, Treating and Beating Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:
Drinking fruit juice is like mainlining sugar; it’s too much sugar at one time. Think about it this way: You’d have a hard time eating ten apples, but you could easily drink a glass of apple juice, which may contain the sugar of up to ten juiced apples. If fruit juice were marketed honestly, the labels would say, “All the sugar, none of the fiber!” Help yourself, however, to all the whole fruits you want. Too much sugar—whether it’s juice, honey, maple syrup, evaporated cane juice, brown sugar, fructose, or white table sugar—is never a healthy choice. Sugar depletes the body of B vitamins, calcium, and magnesium. And at the risk of repeating myself, I’ll remind you that one tablespoon of sugar, in any form, results in a 50-percent reduction in white blood-cell activity for up to five hours. Hope a nasty virus doesn’t travel your way during that time!

Unfortunately, the average American consumes over 150 oz. of sugar a day. A can of Coke has between nine and ten teaspoons, which is at least three tablespoons! Occasional, moderate use of sugar is fine. But too much sugar has a number of other potential, extremely damaging effects on the human body:
- suppress the immune system
- contribute to mood disorders, including hyperactivity, anxiety, depression, and concen- ration difficulties—especially in children
- produce a significant rise in triglycerides
- cause drowsiness and decreased activity in children
- cause symptoms associated with ADHD, especially in children
- lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
- increase the risk of coronary heart disease
- lead to chromium deficiency
- cause copper deficiency
- upset the body’s mineral balance
- promote tooth decay
- raise adrenaline levels in children
- lead to periodontal disease
- speed the aging process, causing wrinkles and grey hair
- increase total cholesterol and systolic blood pressure
