From Virginia, USA:
My son drinks a lot of juice (from frozen concentrate) and a friend recently was told that children who drink a lot of juice have an increased chance of becoming diabetic. Is this true? And if so, how much is too much?
There is not an increased risk of diabetes in children that drink juice. However, drinking a lot, especially when present with frequent urination, and weight loss, are symptoms of childhood diabetes.
