Arsenic In Our Apple Juice?!

If your familiar with the toxic crap, we call food then you should know it’s filled with toxic shit! Well this Arsenic information was featured on the Dr. Oz show. So what is Arsenic? Well it occurs in many minerals, usually in conjunction with sulfur and metals, and also as a pure elemental crystal. It was first documented by Albertus Magnus in 1250. The main use of metallic arsenic is for strengthening alloys of copper and especially lead (for example, in automotive batteries). Well they put this toxic stuff into our food supply; here is some good information:


Minute Maid Apple Juice




Lowest Sample for Arsenic: 2 parts per billion
Highest Sample for Arsenic: 3 parts per billion



Apple and Eve Apple Juice

FDA to Dr. Oz: Apple juice is safe after all


The host of the nationally-syndicated “Dr. Oz Show” is standing by his report on arsenic levels in store-bought apple juice, saying the levels found in some brands made them unsafe for consumption. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration refutes the show’s report, calling it “irresponsible,” and says drinking all brands of apple juice is safe.


“I’m a father of three children, 11, 7 and 4, and apple juice is a staple in my house,” Matt Lauer told Dr. Mehmet Oz on TODAY Thursday morning. “Why should I believe you and not the FDA?
Oz replied that when his investigation found what he thought was unsafe levels of arsenic in apple juice, the FDA refused to talk to him or come on his show.


But, the FDA reviewed Oz’s test results and informed the show with a letter dated Sept. 9 that they couldn’t be used to determine whether the juice is unsafe since it only measured the total arsenic.
Arsenic is both a naturally occurring and inorganic heavy metal, and some levels of it are found in the air we breathe, water we drink and in the ground. It is known to cause cancer and kidney problems. But while high levels of inorganic arsenic can be fatal, the organic form is essentially harmless, says Stephanie Yao, an FDA spokeswoman.


The “Dr. Oz Show” only tested for the total amount, while the FDA tests for levels of both organic and inorganic, says Yao. The FDA also told TODAY that the agency tested the same apple juice lots as Oz did, and found arsenic levels well within safe limits, almost zero.


The FDA has established a benchmark of 23 parts per billion (ppb) of inorganic and organic arsenic to determine whether a food or beverage is a public health risk or reaches a “level of concern.” If that level is reached, the FDA re-tests a sample to measure the inorganic arsenic.


“To try and interpret that data to mean that apple juice is unsafe, is misleading. It’s irresponsible, and I think they’re needlessly scaring parents,” FDA scientist Don Zink, Ph.D, told TODAY.
