Don't drink orange juice, eat a orange!
Make sure you wash it first though after peeling. At least rinse with water.

Without regulations and regular inspections, it would more than likely be worse. Like dead animals, unfiltered insects in the juice, etc. I dont get arguments like yours, where you can see that our food is being poisoned, and you think that if there were no regulations, that all of a sudden the big corps would clean up their act? Get real.

you live in a world where before all these regulations there where it was way better BEFORE all these regulations.
For the last 30 years, the citrus industry has used flavor packs to process what the Food and Drug Administration identifies as "pasteurized" orange juice. That includes top brands such as Tropicana, Minute Maid, Simply Orange and Florida Natural, among others.
Before packaging and shipping, the juice is then jazzed up with an added flavor pack, gleaned from orange byproducts such as the peel and pulp, to compensate for the loss of taste and aroma during the heating process.
Flavor packs are created from the volatile compounds that escape from the orange during the pasteurization step.
But, she said, "It's not made in a lab or made in a chemical process, but comes through the physical process of boiling and capturing the [orange essence]."
In peak season—roughly April to June—oranges can go from grove to glass in less than 24 hours.

On that note, although off topic, (sorry) My ex refused to eat potatos from our compost heap, because they were dirty! I haven't stopped laughing about that. He didn't get the joke,

Still isn't fresh squeezed, is it? And isn't "not from concentrate," is it? And by their own admission it loses "something" the zest, aroma, flavor so they have to boost the base product which has probably also lost all its original nutrients.
