Bold post I know, but hear me out. The best juicer is a 3 horse power blender, Vita Mix now has one and I own the Blendtec Total Blender (same blender Starbucks and places use). A gazillion phytochemicals are in the fiber, and seeds of fruit and vegetables. A 3hp blender breaks down/liberates these phytochemicals of which science don't even know all there is to know about them. You can eat the pulp of your juicer but your digestion will not break down the fiber as will the blender. I call it my atom smasher. A blender is EASY and cleans in SECONDS and you use much less produce. If anyone Rich Carson in particular would want to test this out and blend instead of using a juicer (but the 3 hp one as it is powerful not the 2hp) and notice a difference it may be surprising. I own the green power twin gear juicer and it really never benefited me much but did give me sugar highs I'd say. The happiest thing about the blender is that I make a morning juice of a tiny handful of sprouted almonds, one carrot, a piece of beet and my favorite 1/2 inch sprig of rosemary. Rosemary makes me feel happy it is a real anti-depressent. To this will cycle greens, parsley or cilantro or kale. Sometimes flax rasberries, well you get it. I also put a couple icecubes and water, I dont cover in water, I'd say maybe 3/4 of the produce level, I eyeball it. The blender seems to cost a lot, but you need far less produce, regular amounts that you could eat raw if you wanted to. And you will really do it because there is negligible clean up. I pulse for 20 seconds to grind produce and then hit the S button which will hit atom smashing speed (speed 10) and will go for 50 seconds (this whole time I rest my hand on the lid as there is a centrifugal force and this is what I learned to do when I first learned of this way of juicing) then I hit the S button a second time and when it is done, I pour my juice, I fill the container with water a 1/4 way, and hit the P pulse button for 5 seconds (after I had merely rinsed off the lid and inside continer first before the 1/4 fill) and it is clean, I am done. How many times a day can YOU do this? Time on feet? Maybe 6 minutes from opening fridge, to done. Time at my old juicer? An eternity! I learned this from Dr. Wu, whose program I bought and you can no longer get. But you don't really need this accept for the timing I gave and hand on blender lid rested. He recommends always a base of carrot and beet and at least 2 other ingredients. You can use basil, ginger, peppermint (really great for mental/emotional another happy herb)or any produce. So there is my bold statement, eat the whole food this way and reap benefits with what little energy you have. Linda ps from Dr Wu I learned that with low blood pressure to NOT juice wheatgrass.
