If you drink OJ, might it just as well be Orange Crush?
I'm sure you've heard it many times -- fruit juices, even unsweetened ones, are still just glasses of sugar, and you might as well be drinking a soda or Tang (remember that?). According to nutritiondata.com, a cup of orange juice contains 21g sugars . They don't "itemize" in the OJ entry, but if we look at the ratios oranges we can calculate that of those 21g, roughly 11 g are sucrose, 4.5 g are glucose and 5.5 g are fructose. Thus for each cup (8 oz) of OJ, you get around 11g of the dastardly fructose poison. This is roughly the same as you would get in the same amount (small can!) of orange soda .
