Why are You Still Drinking Juice and Giving it To Your Children?

Quick: think back to childhood (if you’ve reached the scary clown you’ve gone too far). What did your parents or guardians give you to keep you quiet? If you’re anything like most parents, it was juice. But here’s the thing: juice is bad for you.

 

According to pediatric professors Erika R. Cheng, Lauren G. Fiechtner and Aaron E. Carroll, writing in The New York Times, a 12oz glass of orange juice has about 10 teaspoons of sugar, the same amount as a can of full-calorie soda. That alone should be enough to scare off a parent, but the immediate reaction is often, “Yeah, but at least fruit juice has vitamins in it.” This is true: the same 12oz glass of orange juice has 170mg of vitamin C… but your daily requirements max out at 90mg for men and 75mg for women, the rest is excreted as urine. So, sure, yeah, we’ll accept the fact that juice has vitamins in it. But so does a hamburger and so does Nyquil, and I can assure you that a night with those two is much more of a party than a glass of juice.

So what you’re left with after hitting your vitamin needs is a ton of sugar. With juice, you’re consuming all the sugar and none of the fiber, so while you may be having a fruit basket’s worth of fruit in your juice drink you’re skipping over the good part—the fiber—of the fruit entirely and just mainlining the sugar straight into your bloodstream. And all this sugar in the blood (albeit naturally occurring sugar) leads to obesity. 18.4% of American children are overweight, and juice is likely an often unthought-of culprit in the fight against obesity.

 

Is juice the nicotine of the kindergarten class? Are we raising a generation of juiceheads, unable to get through the morning without a sweet sip of the literally-sticky-icky? The results are clear. From Parenting.com:

 

The body responds by producing a large amount of insulin, a hormone that sweeps sugar out of the blood and into body cells. Blood-sugar levels may then drop so quickly, your child may feel shaky or sluggish. Not surprisingly, low blood-sugar levels can trigger a craving for more sweets, which creates a vicious cycle of sugar highs and lows.

Sugar like drugs is highly addictive!

V-8 Juice

V8

V8® Juice Is WORSE For Your Heart Than McDonald’s® French Fries?

V8® Juice has always been touted as a drink that’s good for your health…

Labels on the juice from a few years ago even claimed that the drink was approved as “heart healthy” by the American Heart Association.

But when you take a closer look at the V8 nutrition label, it tells a completely different story.

For example…

Did you know a single 8 oz. glass of V8 Juice contains 650 mg of sodium!

That means an 8 oz glass of V8 juice contains nearly 300% more sodium than a medium order of McDonald’s® French Fries.

Can you believe that?

How on earth can 650 mg of sodium be considered “heart healthy”?

After discovering this, I sought out a world-renowned Doctor to get a second opinion…

Dr. Lane Sebring, a highly respected medical doctor and board member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine told me the truth about drinks like V8 Juice…

“Processed sodium, like the kind found in V8 juice, is more damaging to your heart than foods like red meat, butter or even eggs. I highly recommend that my patients stay away from drinks like V8 juice. And this is especially true if those patients are struggling with blood pressure, cholesterol or blood sugar problems” said Dr. Sebring.
