Is consuming tropicana fruit juice good for health ?

Is consuming tropicana fruit juice good for health ?

Absolutely Not: Adds: As animals we need little to no carbohydrate (all sugars, simple & complex) intake. Yet most humans have a sweet tooth. Not all fruit can be sold before spoiling, esp. not at higher prices, plus people will not buy fruit what has been frozen, thus lots of fruits are converted to juices which can be frozen & stored smoothing out labile supply & prices.
