Juice, Plus What?

I was given a jug of apple juice recently for my kids. The first thing I notice on the side of the label was 15% juice, just above the nutritional facts. Sorta grossed  out, I decided to read the ingredients. First thing in that list was HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP. Before the apples, before water. This is one perfect example of why our country is battling childhood onset diabetes and childhood obesity. That one ingredient is a huge contribution to the health problems that are arising in Americans today. Read the labels of juices you buy, if anywhere on the label it reads "juice cocktail", put it back on the shelf.
