But the rest of his article is slightly pretentious, using the line doctors love touting, "there is no evidence..." or, "there is no research to prove..." I believe this readily: pharmaceutical corporations have no motivation to fund such studies, lest people stop taking their meds and just start eating many more fruits and vegetables. Who would commission such a study, farmers?
Maybe Dr. Braunstein should try juicing for awhile and then rewrite a column. I think I know how it would go: he would feel more energetic and healthy, sleep better, and lose a little weight. But most importantly, he would begin singing the praise of juicing despite there being no research to prove what he has experienced.
Of course, this is coming from a lady who is currently drinking 9 servings of fruits and veggies and feeling so good because of it.
