    still it's not poison, and the fact is yeah the amount the average person consumes probably isn't good but to cut sugar out totally is ridiculous. If cheez-its and chocolate bars get banned, is life worth living?

    I don't think anyone is going to ban sugar. I do think it might be a good idea, though, if the banning or limiting of high fructose corn syrup in many products follows the way of trans fats.

    I'm fine with high fructose corn syrup being banned, but actual sugar why would anyone do that??? I actually find making copy cat recipes and using actually sugar makes them taste like the product but 56 times better.

    It's refined white sugar and high fructose corn syrup. I find the excessive use of high fructose corn syrup to be a significant part of the reason why people are so fucking fat. I think high fructose corn syrup is THE DEVIL.

    Cutting refined white sugar out of your diet is also a really easy way to lose weight. Not to mention avoiding diabetes in the long term.

    There are other alternatives, like honey, brown rice syrup, organic cane syrup, stevia, xylitol, and even Splenda that are better.
    Juice may as well be a Pepsi.

    The alternatives list is nice, I just use honey aka "bee barf"

    why not drink no sugar added juice? that's what i do i find with out the fizzies, sugared juice is too sweet. I mean no sugar added juice is equal to eating fruit. plus you don't have to chew which is even better.

    I agree. You shouldn't cut out carbs but you should balance carbs with protein, fat, vitamins etc. Foods with low glycemic index (wholegrains, vegetables etc.) give you a fuller feeling between meals longer than foods with high glycemic index.

    1) It can't be as bad as Pepsi because it doesn't contain caffeine or carbonation.

    2) Natural fruit juice is nowhere near as bad as additive hfcs.

    3) Yes, I understand that some parents give their toddlers too much juice. I can agree with that.

    As the article from CBS points out, juice is still just sugar and water...even the no sugar added is only a minimum improvement over a soda.

    oh and while were on the subject of stuff that's good for you but you can od, you do know you can also consume too much calcium. so I bet any fucking food you can find some instance where someone's had adverse effects. I'm applying this to juice btw. Now the average person won't od on calcium but those calicum supplements? their's a reason why they say to not exceed a certain amount.

    juice is not just sugar and water. wtf are you high?

    I really think you're falling too much for the sensationalist news articles, slippy. There is DEFINITELY truth in these articles, but to compare juice to Pepsi is irrational. Use your brain.
