    Special Report: A day without genetically altered orange juice | Reuters

    Lower labor costs and ongoing greening blight. Ten years before orange juice will be imported from China.

    Wonder if this disease impacts Grapefruit? I prefer grapefruit juice anyway.

    Orange Juice has a ton of sugar in it.

    Oranges have been genetically altered since the first graft or cross-pollination. As has any plant or animal that has undergone genetic selection to improve an attribute. The gene to stop greening will save the US OJ industry in spite of the "anti's" rhetoric.
