Orange You Glad You Knew?

I'll be getting a book in the mail through Amazon in a day or two called "Squeezed".  I found in through www.hartkeisonline.com, who is run by Kimberly Hartke, the publisher for WAPF.  This is also where I got the link for the Raw Milk Symposium in Wisconsin.  "Squeezed" is all about the "fresh squeezed" orange juice you and my husband thinks they are drinking when they buy those "not from concentrate" juices.

Although, I'm already aware of the fact that it is neither fresh nor squeezed, I thought it would be advantageous to read up on it a bit more.  Not only is orange one of the most pesticide laden crops, but the juice is "squeezed" by grinding up the skin (full of pesticides) and all into the juice.  It is then boiled to death and soy protein is added to prevent the separation in the juice (ever notice how the solids never fall to the bottom?).

That's just a "taste" of what I'm aware of.  Can't wait to read more about it.  Blog to follow. Feel free to check it out yourself through link below.  In the meantime....drink your raw milk instead.

Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!
Can't wait to hear more about this!

Thanks for giving us a head up on this. Often we think that we are gonna have a real healthy juice for breakfast...orange juice...'fresh squeezed'...but not anymore!
I'll squeeze my own or better yet, like you said, have a big glass of raw milk.
