Apple Juice Safety Concerns Unfounded, Says FDA
 
Apple juice safety hazards noted by television’s Dr. Oz are not backed by any notable scientific evidence, says the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. According to the Associated Press, the FDA attacked the popular television doctor on his show, “The Dr. Oz Show” after he made alarming claims without explaining any of the details of his assertions.
This week, Dr. Oz claimed on his hit show that the popular juice contains cancer-causing arsenic. Since these accusations were made, the FDA promptly issued a public statement that explains the types of arsenic available, as well as the amount allowed for safe consumption.
There are two types of arsenic: organic and inorganic. The FDA explains that beverages, such as water and apple juice, all naturally contain small levels of organic arsenic, which is considered safe for human consumption. Inorganic arsenic is derived from pesticides. “The Dr. Oz Show” did not clarify these differences when they tested several brands of juices on television this past week.
According to the AP, Dr. Oz said on his show that some juices contained 36 parts per billion of arsenic, more than triple the amount allowed by the FDA. However, the FDA tested some of the same brands.
