This Thread is quite timely. Here's what happened last week regarding a glass of OJ:
I was visiting a friend last week and we were sitting at her kitchen table. She was drinking a small glass of Orange Juice, specifically, TROPICANA
ORANGE JUICE, and all of the sudden she jumped up from the table and was screaming as she was spitting the juice out into the kitchen sink. I was
startled. I asked her what was wrong. I couldn't figure out why she was so crazed and I couldn't imagine what was wrong. After she spit out the OJ
and composed herself, she said she was positive she tasted manure. I said, "What, how could that be". I don't drink commercial OJ and I didn't
know this was possible.
We held the remainder of the orange juice in the glass up to the sunlight coming through the kitchen window and we didn't see anything brownish or
discolored (disgusting). When we smelled the juice, although we didn't smell manure or poop (disgusting) it certainly did NOT have that sweet scent
of OJ ... like it's supposed to have ... now we know why.
I saw Food, Inc and I also know the food supply is tainted and as effed-up as can be, and I'm aware of Monsanto's Frankenfoods and poison seeds ...
however, manure in OJ? She said she was positive it was a teeny bit of manure b/c she said it tasted just like the stench and smell of manure when she
visits the local farms to purchase her produce. She said that 'without a doubt', it was a teeny bit of manure in that particular gulp of OJ.
Although, she didn't vomit, she had severe diarrhea for the rest of the day, and a few hours later a raging migraine. It was awful.
So, while she was washing her mouth and gargling with some anti-bacterial concoction she had, I went out right away and bought her a 6-pack of these
really high-quality (refrigerated) ProBiotics that the local grocery chain sells, and she took a double-dose of these PB's every single day for over
a week. So, she was sick for the first 8-hours until these PB's really took effect, but she has continued to take all of the PB's, just in case.
What if a pregnant woman or a toddler or young child or an individual with a compromised immune system had swallowed this? ... I'm thinking e.Coli.
Disgustingly awful. Someone could die from this and never even trace it back to the OJ. They could also become so sickly that they become seriously
dehydrated, which can carry life-long consequences, such as kidney disease, for one.
I rarely drink OJ (too acidic) but when I do drink it, I fresh-squeeze the oranges with the compact citrus-juicer I keep on my counter-top and I wash
the oranges off first OR once in awhile I buy Odwalla brand or the local grocers OJ which is fresh-squeezed right in front of you. It costs a little
more but it's well worth it and I just drink a little less since it is a bit more costly. You get what you pay for.
Thanks for the Thread. I'll pass this on to my friend who is still freaked out over this recent incident.
By the way, if this should ever happen (hope not) anyone can take Probiotics, even pregnant women and babies. If one is lactose-intolerant, then take
dairy-free PB's. The PB's probably saved her life. If the PB's are 'live', high-quality they do work ... otherwise they're useless and
