Go easy on the fruit juice

The Telegraph reports an astonishing shift from tea and coffee to supposedly "healthy" fruit juices.

Britain now drinks 2.2 billion litres of juice drinks each year, the equivalent of more than 36 litres for every man, woman and child.

However, diet experts say fruit juices are not as healthy as many people believe and that their high sugar content could outweigh any benefits if consumed to excess.

I wonder how much of the current obesity epidemic is caused by people changing their diets in an attempt to make them more "healthy".
