Key Findings: A systematic review and meta-analysis evaluated the relationship between juice and various chronic health outcomes. The study concluded that no adverse health effects were found to be associated with 100% juice consumption and diabetes, cardiovascular disease, glucose homeostasis, lipid levels, or blood pressure. The study found no significant associations between juice and weight gain in children or adults. While, (based on limited data) the study did find an increased risk of tooth decay in children, overall the findings support 100% juice recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Dietary Guidelines and the continued inclusion of juice in food public policy programs.
