  • The study is the first ever comparison of 100% fruit juice with soda
  • Researchers from Emory and Cornell found excessive soda consumption increased the risk of early death by 11%
  • Excessive consumption of fruit juice increased the risk of early death by 24% 
  • An expert described the study as important but said there was no risk from a single 150ml glass of fruit juice per day 

Consuming fruit juices is just as bad for your health and likely to lead to an early death as drinking cola or lemonade, research suggests. 

A new study found an increased risk of dying early from any cause for people who consumed a lot of sugary drinks. 

US researchers compared, for the first time, 100 percent fruit juices with sugar-sweetened beverages such as cola and lemonade. 

They found very similar associations for both fruit juices and sugary drinks with an increased risk of dying early, though they said more research was needed. 

An expert described the study as important but said there was no risk from a single 150ml glass of fruit juice per day.

That is why it is best to make your own juice out of natural fruits vs. buying the processed ones, artificial silliness, etc.

Healthy choices benefits the soul, and it benefits a healthy lifestyle for the household. Also wise to keep the Fructose levels on a limit, if the goal is fat loss.

We gave a lot of 100 percent fruit juices to our kids, and now all of them have been telling us for several years that fruit juices, even fully natural juices, are not healthy.

It's because sugar from fruit is just another kind of sugar. It is essentially no healthier than sugars that comes from cane, beets, or corn. Without reading the study yet I'm also guessing that people tend to limit their intake of sodas due to warnings, and even exaggeratedly false warnings, and also the fact that carbonation can help you feel more full. "Excessive" soda drinkers have limits set by peers, doctors, and "themselves."

"Excessive" fruit juice drinkers have no such limits. It is common knowledge how much "empty" caloric content is in a can of soda. But most people don't see a calorie warning on the side of a glass of lemonade. Orange juice, apple juice, etc., are thought of as healthy by moms and other parents. And the second or third glass goes down smoothly. There is no self-limiting tang of carbonation.

Of course, the study is still surprising, otherwise we wouldn't be reading about it. This could also mean that the actual content of the study is inconclusive or is being misinterpreted. Most studies are misinterpreted by the time someone finds a surprising title to put on it.
