Juicing for Cancer Prevention

PURE Juicer asked Ilene Ruhoy, MD, Ph.D. to help us make a deeper connection to western medicine, the body, and medicine through the food and juicing. Dr. Ruhoy is a board-certified neurologist, with a fellowship in integrative medicine at the University of Arizona with Dr. Andrew Weil, and has her Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology. She is now our Chief Medical Officer and we are grateful for her passion and expertise.

Periodic Table of Juicing

The Periodic Table of Juicing


Centuries ago, Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” Our juicing and plant-based communities intuitively know what this means and have personally experienced the impact fruits and vegetables have on our bodies. But there is also a disconnect between the benefits of food and the medicine prescribed for wellness (and illness).

We Should All Be Drinking Cold-Pressed Juice

Including fresh juice as part of a well-balanced diet is an important way to achieve a healthier, more energetic, and disease-free lifestyle. Fresh and raw foods are rich in proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals, the most essential building blocks for our body. My hope is to explain the cold press juicing process and to educate you about why true cold-pressed juice is so much better than juice made by any other process.

Cold press juicing is a two-stage process that involves the grinding and pressing of fruits and vegetables. This process is the same one that has been used for centuries and to this day for apple cider and extra-virgin olive oil production. It is the tried and true method to extract delicate flavor esters, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients from produce.
