Since I got sick I watch Dr. Oz quite a bit. Today his topic was arsenic & apple juice concentrate. The FDA allows arsenic levels in our drinking water to be 10 parts to billion. It does not have standard for apple juice. Here is list of co. that exceed this level: Gerber-36; Juicy Juice-22; Motts-16. Arsenic is found in most products that contain apple juice as sweetener; they usually come from China. Organic does not. Minute Maid & Apple & Eve are  the only ones who came in under 10. Less than 2% food imports are inspected. It is up to us to force change at the cash register. You can watch Dr. Oz online 9/14/2011 to see show.
