Why is this Soda's Evil Twin?

Dr Mercola

Many people believe that they are making a healthier choice if they forgo a can of soda and instead drink fruit juice. But are they?

In fact, fruit drinks are not only less than healthy, they are in many cases actually worse for you than soft drinks. They can be higher in sugar, and much higher in calories. They are responsible for a good deal more obesity than most people are aware of.

According to Discovery.com:

“Considering an 8-ounce serving of Snapple Apple has more sugar than 2 and a half Krispy Kreme glazed donuts, you were probably [better] off reaching for the box rather than the bottle.”

8oz of Snapple Apple 27 grams of sugar.
8oz Of Coco Cola 26 grams of sugar.
1 Krisy Kreme Glazed Doenut 25 grams of sugar.
