Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn on smoothies:

"Avoid smoothies. The fiber is so finely pureed that its helpful properties are
potentially compromised. The sugar is separated from the fiber of the fruit,
bypasses salivary digestion and results in a surge of glucose. The accompanying
fructose contributes to inflammation, hypertension and endothelial injury."

Is the doc right or wrong?
