    What about juicing carrots/beets as an adjunct treatment for cancer- along with eating the whole foods

    I do a smoothie every morning for breakfast made of orange juice ,one apple ,some strawberries ,raw oats- two Small scoops-one banana and a handful of blueberries. How healthy is that. I have been doing this for about twenty years.

    Chewing foods also mixes the food with salivary amylase which significantly improves digestion of starches. I am just wondering how juicing with low calorie, non starchy veggie would affect the blood sugar. I think it would be minimal. Are there any studies out there to indicate one way or another?
