Drinking fresh fruit juice outside home is harmful to health because normally shop keepers add contaminated water to the fruit juices.Instead it is advisable to eat fresh fruits to avoid unnecessary problems to our stomach.This is my experiance.Have you ever stomach upset by drinking juice in this manner?

Honestly I can't afford to drink fresh fruit juice that's why we buy from concentrate. It's getting way too expensive in the grocery food market.

You are absolutely right in saying that its advisable to eat fresh fruits. Health and hygiene is also a reason. one more reason I see for this is all/most of the fruits has the necessary vitamins/nutrients in their skin. For instance, when u drink apple juice, it's skin is peeled off. So part/most of the nutrient is lost. Also it would cost less to buy a fruit than buying the juice. Though I have never had any problem with fruit juices in shops, but the possibilities are high as rithly pointed out due to contamination. Its really a good topic to choose as we have summer ahead in India (especially Chennai).

I agree that most vitamins are lost when the skin of fruit is peeled off.We can try to prepare fruit juices in home..may be its a bit of work we have to do but very hygenic when its home prepared.

Well, we only buy juice in the supermarket and besides, shop keepers here in France wouldn't dare to add contaminated water to anything if they even have such water (which I doubt). I do prefer to make my own juice though! It's much healthier and has more flavour.

Thats really great but one can see many juice shops in India adding contaminated water which the people knew .There are shops which are clean but cot of juice is quite high and these people considering money go in for cheap juice and suffer illness.

Not really. I like to drink fresh fruit juices. If I have time at home, I usually make my own fruit juice to refresh my nerves and spirit. It's very healthy. Fresh fruit juices are indeed good sources of many vitamins and minerals especially vitamin C, of course, which is common to citrus fruits.

I cannot say juices outside home is harmful..There are some shops where they use distilled mineral water..good fruits...and the person who makes it wears gloves and covers his head..but that shop would be little costly...But going to local mroadside shop nad getting the juice for a cheaper rate and getting the disease and spending some money in treatment is far better than to spend in getting a good juice... Always go for a best product even its costly...its always good...

No, not exactly. Yes but I have faced a problem some three years back when I bought fruits from local road side shop and suffered from stomach pain and was admitted to hospital.

Nowdays the fruits are riped using some chemical stone which is not good for health.If you happen to purchase mango or apple you can smell the chemical in it.

Fruit juice - Fruits are good for health
Dear subathra I love to drink fresh fruit juice .. but manytimes I used to drink it from outside home .. but I always make sure that the shop is neat and clean and the person is taking the juice out in my presence only. It's much better to eat fruits instead of drinking juice .. if you see it health wise .. but still drinking juice is also not a bad thing .. Well I had stomach problems once .. when I had juice from a bad shop.. I had fever for 4 days time.
