Ask LH: Is Fruit Juice Good Or Bad For You?

Dear Lifehacker, My friend keeps telling me to stop drinking fruit juice because "it's basically just sugar". She also claims it's just as bad as Coca-Cola.

Ask LH: Do I Need To See A Doctor Before Changing My Diet?

Dear Lifehacker, In the past, I've assumed most doctors are charlatans, and only visited them in matter of dire emergency (needing a sick note for work, week-long flu, etc.).

Dear Lifehacker, what's the best way to deal with a cold? Some people tell me to use drugs, others tell me that stops my body fighting it naturally.
