Arsenic and lead found in fruit juices

Posted on December 6th, 2011 No Comments

A Consumer Reports investigation has revealed that dangerous levels of inorganic arsenic and lead are in fruit juices.

Inorganic arsenic, a carcinogen, is known to cause bladder, lung, and skin cancer, as well as increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and immunodeficiencies.

Consumer Reports found that in 10% of the juices they sampled from five different brands had levels of inorganic arsenic that exceeded the federal drinking water standard. One in four juices had levels of lead higher than five parts per billion. There are currently no federal standards for arsenic or lead in juices.
