New investigation confirms dangerous levels of arsenic in apple juice

Apple juice is under the microscope.

A new investigation seems to confirm the controversial findings by TV’s Dr. Oz about dangerous levels of arsenic in apple juice.

Consumer reports tested 88 samples of both apple and grape juice and found 10 percent had total arsenic levels greater than the federal standards allow for drinking water, and 25 percent of them had lead levels higher than the FDA standard for bottled water.

The juice industry responded by saying that "juice is not water", so the comparison was not "appropriate."
