I’ve noticed that smoothies contain sugar. Is that healthy for me?

There is one major difference between naturally occurring sugars (found in fruits) and refined sugar. These sugars behave very differently in our body. Added sugar in processed meals and drinks should be a reason to avoid them or stop consuming at all. It plays a major role in epidemics of obesity and other related diseases. BUT there is no scientific evidence that the fructose content in fruits posses any health risk in humans. By contrast to this, consumption of fruits or veggies is scientifically associated with significantly lower risk of obesity and diabetes not to mention cardiovascular diseases and various types of cancer.
