Is orange juice destined to become a "luxury item"?
The U.S. orange industry is under siege from a disease killing citrus trees. Anna Kuchment, senior editor at Scientific American, talks about possible solutions and what it means for consumers.
When is population controls going to be discussed? Four Billion Overpopulated and concerns over Oranges, Bananas, and Milk are being discussed now. Wow, that's good timing.
My recommendtion is to spray the crop with ionic colloidal silver in a base of distilled water! It's is relatively inexpensive. Silver is our most powerful anti-pathenogenic!

You are blaming illegally imported orange plants? millions are/were legally brought in (for, among other things, chinese new year)
and walmart, home depot etc sell plants from all over the globe.
Are orange trees, like each variety of apples, all genetically identical?
Monoculture bad. Diverse crop growing is helpful
love to hear any "conspiracy" backstory.
reminds me of this 2003 article published in the Guardian, "In 10 years we may have no bananas":http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2003/jan/16/gm.science
The solution so far has been chemical pesticides and GMO bananas -- a true boon to two powerful businesses. And lots of bananas!
On a related note -- Washington's Aspartame Lobby is attempting to redefine "Milk?"
