Are You Avoiding Apple Juice?

By Newsanchormom

I don't know what to do about the arsenic in apple juice controversy. Are there certain brands that do not contain arsenic or is it in all of them? My kids love apple juice. I am sure the two younger boys would be dehydrated if I took it away. I would hate to do that unless there is a good reason. I guess arsenic is a good reason. It just seems like fear mongering to me. What do you think? Should I take away the apple juice?

According to ABC News, Consumer reports found ten percent of samples of apple juice had higher amounts of arsenic than what's allowed in drinking water. Dr. Richard Besser says the type of arsenic found in apple juice is dangerous. It is not the safe kind. Dr. Besser says children under 7-years-old should have no more than 4-6 ounces of apple juice a day. He says the FDA needs to do more testing and hold the industry accountable.
