Juices - Why we should dilute them

Elaine writes:
Nature has incorporated compounds of foods in such ways as they all have an effect on
each other. For example, pulp in a whole pear eaten as such affects the absorption of other nutrients such as sugars. It slows the input of sugars the way to which we, as humans, are adapted.

That is one reason I have you dilute all your juices - the architecture of the plant - the pulp - has been removed.
