Good News: It's Ok To Drink Juice!

"Lots of us have banned OJ from our diets because we think it's
not worth the calories. But it turns out that people who drink it-
and other 100-percent fruit juices- are actually more likely than
non-juice drinkers to meet their daily requirements for key nutrients
like vitamins A and C, calcium, and potassium, new research suggests.
Start with these five, pink grapefruit, orange, white grapefruit, prune,
pineapple, which score highest in 14 naturally occurring vitamins and
minerals, according to an analysis by Gail Rampersaud, RD, assistant in
nutrition research and education at the University of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences."
