The results of a Consumer Reports investigation shows that dangerous levels of the toxic substance arsenic is in apple juice.
These claims contradict the FDA’s statement that arsenic found in juices is organic and “essentially harmless.” Consumer Reports discovered that inorganic arsenic, a carcinogen, is in apple and grape juices at levels that exceed federal drinking water standards. 10% of the juices sampled from five brands had these high levels of arsenic. One in four juices contained high levels of lead.
Inorganic arsenic is known to cause many types of cancer, including bladder, skin, and lung cancer. It can also increase one’s risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and immunodeficiencies.
