Americans drinking pesticide for breakfast

The saga of juice tainted by a fungicide in Brazil reveals holes in the FDA screening process for imported foods. Are other contaminated products slipping through?

Before I read that, I read this article that talks about how even OJ not from concentrate is artificially flavored:

I don't know if it actually makes any difference, but I've been spending extra money on Naked juice.

Juicing yourself is a good idea, especially from oranges, which are resistant to contamination from pesticides (with the exception of the nuclear stuff they were using in Brazil). That way, you know exactly what's in your cup - juice, and nothing else.

Yes, I should definitely bite the bullet and invest in a juicer :)

We will NEVER get all of this stuff under control...especially when we get so much stuff from other countries, where there are little or no regulations to ensure safety and quality......I dont' think its a big issue though....there will ALWAYS be something like this going on
