The Great Orange Juice Scam
November 05, 2009
One of the great scams of the industrial food cartel is the so-called "fresh" orange juice sold in supermarkets.
Some reality checks:
- There is more vitamin c in a single orange than in a full glass of industrial orange juice.
- Truly fresh orange juice only lasts a few days. It if last for weeks (or months), it's an industrial product.
- Until the Florida orange growers launched a campaign in the early 20th century to deal with their surplus crop, the only people who drank orange juice were Floridians who had a tree in their backyard. There is nothing particularly healthy or natural about drinking orange juice -- and the industrial product is a total waste of money.
