Orange Juice

Did you know . . . . . . .

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.

Eating an orange (the inside not just the juice of an orange) lowers your cholesterol.
Brazil produces more oranges than the United States.
Orange trees are a symbol of love and marriage in many cultures.
