A few years ago, New Zealand health officials opened a probe against goji juice makers after becoming aware of advertisements that claim the juice is able to cure several diseases, including cancer. Such claims are illegal for food products in New Zealand. The same thing happened in the US not too long ago with Noni juice, another popular health drink.
The governments of a few states ended up banning such advertising with Noni juice, and it appears that many websites and companies that offer goji juice and other health drinks are taking notice by both putting disclaimers on their sites and being careful about what claims they put up and how they are worded.
I would just like to take this opportunity to say that it is indeed possible to cure cancer and a variety of other diseases naturally, and with far higher success than traditional drugs, which are in so many cases simply designed to cover up symptoms, or have marginally better effects than placebos. The thing is, our bodies need a variety of things to function properly, and much of our aging is caused by our bodies not getting these things, whether they be certain vitamins, minerals or other agents that are ill-understood by modern doctors or scientists. The best place to get what our bodies need is clearly from eating a variety of foods, which should include as many different types of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds and herbs as possible.
The simple fact is, goji juice and berries are indeed incredibly healthy, but as I have said before, the effects that are noted from them by many people may simply be related to their bodies suddenly getting a sorely needed boost of vitamins, minerals, healthy sugars, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and other things they are not used to getting in their normal diets. This is not to say that you won’t notice an effect if you already eat healthy, but the fact of the matter is that nothing will benefit you more than simply eating a diverse diet, exercising, getting proper sleep, taking time to relax, play, and develop healthy relationships and strive to grow emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
