Lead and arsenic found in juice

Posted on December 5th, 2011 No Comments

An investigation lead by Consumer Reports has revealed that dangerous levels of lead and inorganic arsenic are in apple and grape fruit juices.

There are currently no federal limits on lead and inorganic arsenic in juices. Federal drinking water standards limit arsenic levels to 10 parts per billion. Consumer Reports found that 10% of the five brands it tested had higher inorganic arsenic levels than 10 parts per billion. The federal limit on lead in drinking water is 5 parts per billion and a quarter of the brands it sampled exceeded this limit.

Inorganic arsenic is known to cause skin, bladder, and lung cancer. It can also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and immunodeficiencies.
