A Consumer Reports investigation has revealed that fruit juices contain dangerous levels of inorganic arsenic, a known carcinogen. The FDA claims that arsenic found in apple and grape juices is organic and “essentially harmless.”
Consumer Reports’ findings show otherwise. In 10% of the juice samples it tested of five different brands had inorganic arsenic levels that exceed the federal drinking water standards of 10 parts per billion. There is currently no federal arsenic limit on juices.
Inorganic arsenic can cause an increase risk of cardiovascular disease, immunodeficiencies, and type 2 diabetes. It is also known to cause lung, bladder, and skin cancer.
