But faced with a choice between OJ and Milk, pick the OJ!

Can I get fat from drinking OJ? - The high levels of sugar in the juice are something to watch out for. Obesity is more strongly correlated with high intake of calories from dairy, meat and processed breads.

this is from bellybytes.com:

Phytonutrientsare receiving increased attention because of their powerful andwide-ranging health effects on the body. Scientists believe theseplant-derived components may promote health by protecting our cells.Orange juice naturally contains more than 60 phytonutrients Many ofthem are known as flavonoids. Research has shown that flavonoids are natural antioxidants and may help support a healthy cardiovascular system and immune system.

Did you know?
  • 50 million Americans have high blood pressure.
  • Of those people with high blood pressure, one-third don’t know that they have it.
  • The amount of potassium in one 8 ounce glass of orange juice can help reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke by 6%.
Orange juice is the most nutrient-packed fruit juice -- a nutritionpowerhouse in a glass! One eight-ounce serving provides 110 caloriesand contains all the vitamin C you need in a day. It's also a good source of potassium, folate and thiamin. And there's more -- vitamin B6, niacin, riboflavin and magnesium. Plus, not from- concentrate orange juice is sodium-free while from-concentrate orange juice is very low in sodium with only 15 milligrams per serving.

Focus on Heart Health
Reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by:
  • Reducing high blood cholesterol
  • Lowering high blood pressure
  • Aiming for a healthy weight
  • Being physically active every day
  • If you have diabetes, keeping blood sugar under control
Orange juice has been shown to improve the following cardiovascular disease risk factors:

Healthy Cholesterol
A recent study has produced promising results for improvingHDL-cholesterol (good cholesterol). Men and women with high bloodcholesterol levels drank 1, 2, and 3 cups of not-from- concentrateorange juice daily for a total of 12 weeks. At the end of the 12-weekperiod, there was a 21% increase in HDL cholesterol with no changes toLDL (bad) cholesterol. The ratio of good/bad cholesterol improved by16%, although there was a moderate increase in triglycerides.

Healthy Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is often called a "silent killer" because it candevelop without any warning signs. A healthy eating plan includingpotassium-rich foods may help. Increasing your intake by adding justone serving of a good source of potassium from fruit, 100% fruit juiceor vegetables has been shown to decrease the risk of high bloodpressure and stroke.

The evidence is so strong that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration allows this health claim to appear on foods that are good sources of potassium:
  • Diets containing foods that are good sources of potassium and lowin sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.
Potassium is found in a wide range of foods, especially fruits, many vegetables, and some dairy products. Examples include potatoes, bananas, citrus fruit and juices, tomatoes,and milk. The recommended daily intake for potassium is 3,500milligrams. This is also the Daily Value used on food labels in the Nutrition Facts panel. Surprisingly, over 80% of Americans do not consume the recommended amount of potassium each day.

What is Homocysteine?
Folate, as well as other B vitamins, are required for breaking down homocysteine to less harmful substances. Homocysteine is an amino acidthat is associated with cardiovascular risk. Studies in healthyindividuals have demonstrated that low blood levels of folate can leadto elevated blood levels of homocysteine. In one study, healthyvolunteers drank 20 ounces of not-from-concentrate orange juice alongwith their normal diet over a 60-day period. Drinking orange juicesignificantly increased blood folate levels 45%. Blood homocysteinelevels decreased significantly by 11%.

DASH for Great Health!
The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) dietincludes eight to 10 servings of fruits, 100% fruit juices andvegetables as well as two servings of low fat dairy products each day.Studies in healthy people who followed the DASH diet found that a diethigh in fruits and vegetables can significantly reduce blood pressurein as little as two weeks.

Boost your intake of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables
As a daily guideline, the Food Guide Pyramid recommends three to five servings of vegetables and two to four servings of fruit, along with a variety of foods.

Here are some easy ways to enjoy more fruits and vegetables:
  • Pile lots of vegetables -- and even fruits -- on your favoritesandwiches. Try sliced peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, apple or pineapplewith lettuce and sprouts.
  • Drink 100% juice as a snack beverage.
  • Take a fruit to lunch. Add a piece of fresh fruit or small snack-size container of fruit to your lunch bag or briefcase.
  • Whip up a smoothie made with fresh fruit, fruit juice and frozen yogurt.
  • Toss vegetable toppings on your pizza -- broccoli, zucchini, spinach, red and green peppers, mushrooms.
