Soda has gotten the bad rap from nutritionists for a long time. Experts say the amount of sugar in each can or bottle contributes to a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Now, two U.K. researchers are saying that even natural, no-sugar-added fruit juice is a bit more than a sugar delivery system that's almost harmful as soda.
In the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, researchers compared the nutritional stats of apple juice with those of a can of cola. About one cup of apple juice has 110 calories and a shocking 26 grams of sugar. These calorie and sugar counts are almost similar to what you'd find in the same size serving of cola.
The researchers also cited previous research linking regular consumption of grape juice to increased insulin resistance. Researchers wrote that it offsets any nutritional benefit offered by the vitamins and minerals in fruit juice, researchers wrote.
Researchers are now suggesting that a cup of fruit juice no longer count as one of the five servings of fruit and vegetables you're supposed to take each day. They're also calling for warning labels on fruit juice containers, which would clue consumers in to the high calorie and sugar counts.

The vaccinations are among the most frequently cited reasons to inject children. However, for those who are afraid of injection pain, even the mention of a vaccine triggers fear and anxiety and bad childhood memories of painful shots in the office of a doctor or the classroom. Indeed, 20-50 percent of children and 20-30 percent of adults express serious fears about needles. People who are scared of hands are less likely to receive the flu shot or get their children vaccinated. They also have a higher likelihood of staying away from medical treatment. This means that until we can develop an injection-free vaccine, addressing anxiety and discomfort from needles is essential for the effectiveness of vaccines, including the possibility of a coronavirus vaccine.
