Is it better to eat raw fruits and vegetables or juice fruits and vegetables. I was told by an advid juicer that our stomach acids can not break down the fruits and vegetables as well as a juicer. Therefor by juicing fruits and vegetables our bodies get greater benefits.

Our bodies are perfectly capable of digesting fruits and vegetables. They do not need to be juiced to be digested, and while consuming some of our fruits and vegetables as juice is fine, juicing removes the fiber, or indigestible material from fruits and vegetables. This fiber is one of the beneficial parts of fruits and vegetables, since it gives you a full feeling, and may be helpful for heart health. It also promotes regularity. It is best to eat most of your fruits and vegetables instead of drinking them.
