This situation is so dire that the orange juice market has been halved since 2001. But the most severe flu outbreak in eight years has meant that everyone who's worrying about getting sick is turning to the only place they can think to go -- the sweet and pulpy nectar of the noble orange -- and sales are up for the first time since 2013.
Unfortunately there's not much science behind this tradition. Vitamin C can dampen a cold a bit, but, as Grub Street points out, a glass of orange juice has more calories and grams of sugar than a Snickers Bar. You might be better off going directly to the source with something like Emergen-C.
So orange juice may not save us from the flu, but we might end up saving it?
