Like "Mays, Thanks for this discussion. I love the search capability of this site - I just typed "juicer" in the search box and your discussion magically appeared! LOL My thanks go out to the software engineers here that make "magical" things like this happen. :o) The links Mays gave are being very helpful in giving me the education I need: The videos of Dr. Mercola & Dr. Becker and the Fern's Nutrition site. Check 'em out: http://www.diabeticconnect.com/videos/1763-benefits-of-juicing-and-using-good-juicers http://www.diabeticconnect.com/videos/1764-dr-becker-and-cindy-present-helpful-tips-for-juicing---your-health-tv http://www.fernsnutrition.com/juicer_benefits.htm Benefits of Jucing http://www.fernsnutrition.com/juicer_types.htm Juicer types http://www.fernsnutrition.com/juicer_recipes.htm Recipes http://www.fernsnutrition.com/juicer_criteria.htm Selecting a jucier type http://www.fernsnutrition.com/juicer_articles.htm Various articles http://www.fernsnutrition.com/index.html Quality brands & prices I'd be VERY interested in hearing from anyone with juicing experience. Dr. Mercola suggests using a juicer, not a blender - they're different. I refuse to do like my Native American Indian ancestors (the Chickasaw) did - beat/pulverize food with 2 rocks! LOL OK, "post on" my friends & educate me. :o) Tony5657 ... Juiceless in New Braunfels, TX "
