Badvertising: Pomegranate Brain Juice

Yup, not only will pomegranate juice improve your immune system, now it will "nourish" your brain.

So how much omega-3 "nourishment" is your brain getting? 50mg of DHA per 250ml.

Per serving of salmon there's roughly 1,610mg.

So if you drink 8 litres of the stuff (32 glasses), you'll get as much DHA as having a single serving of salmon.

Of course you'll also get over a pound of calories and almost 5 cups of sugar.

That's some "nourishment".
