A friend of mine has Chrone's disease and has been juicing for over 5 years. He grinds up raw carrots, oranges and apples (sometimes adds other vegetables), and this has made all the difference in the world to help heal his large intestine (even the scars are gone). As far as myself, I've always felt better the day after eating things like potatoes, rice, sweet corn. I believe many of Americans' problems concerning health is rooted in our fast food diets. Take the extra time and eat right, you colon will thank you for it later!! Good Luck!!!!
