Fruit Juice is Just as Risky as Soda to Your Health.

Fruit juices have a chemical makeup similar to other sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs). So researchers wanted to determine whether fruit juices had the same or similar health effects as SSBs.They did. Data from the REGARDS study (developed to determine stroke risk) on sugary drink intake (November 2017 to December 2018) was reviewed for 13,440 adults (black and white) ages 45 and over without known coronary heart disease (CHD) or previous stroke. They found that fruit juice, either alone or consumed in combination with other SSBs, was linked to both CHD, as well as death from any cause. This study was reported in JAMA Network Open, May 17, 2019.
