An investigation lead by Consumer Reports shows that dangerous levels of the known carcinogens arsenic and lead are in fruit juices.
While the FDA claims that arsenic in fruit juices is organic, which is not carcinogenic, and “essentially harmless,” the results of the Consumer Reports investigation shows otherwise. Inorganic arsenic levels were found in apple and grape juices at levels that exceed federal drinking water standards. There is currently not a federal limit on inorganic arsenic in juices.
This form of arsenic is known to cause lung, skin, and bladder cancer, as well as increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, immunodeficiencies, and cardiovascular disease.
