Baltimore - Juice is suppose to be one of those healthy drinks to kick start your morning. It all depends on what you’re drinking. According to a new study, the very best fruit juice isn't as nutritious as the fruit it originally came from. The fiber that makes a piece of fruit so filling has been stripped away: Instead of filling your belly like an apple or an orange, juice just passes through your gastrointestinal tract like a little stream of sugar.
