Warning about Juice

One of the worst things you can drink is juice. I'll explain why in a moment. Since it's almost summer soon, we need to drink even more water than we did in the winter. Why? It's very important to keep hydrated so that the lymphatic system functions properly. If you don't drink enough water you might want to jump on a trampoline, like Terry Grossman, M.D., to keep your lymphatic system running smoothly. But back to the question of why juice is so bad. The reason is that juice is mostly simple sugar, and sugar causes a spike in insulin levels. The ills that insulin can cause in your body are so numerous I could write a book on the subject. Suffice it to say that you don't want to increase your insulin levels. About the only things worse than juice are soda and alcohol. I personally drink Dasani, Perrier, Pellegrino, Poland Spring distilled water, and any brand of club soda or carbonated water on sale. One final tip: avoid anything flavored, even zero-calorie flavored water. The reason is that flavor (even so-called "natural flavor") almost invariably contains MSG, which can kill brain cells, according to Russell Blaylock, M.D., author of Health and Nutrition Secrets that Can Save Your Life. More on this important subject in an upcoming post.
