Consumers Reports recently found high levels of arsenic in apple juice. Turns out it’s a gift from China:
John Laumer wrote that much of the concentrate comes from China where it is sent to U.S. bottlers. China’s apple concentrate has high levels of arsenic because of the exceedingly high air pollution from coal and because they may still be using arsenic as a pesticide. Though the practice was banned in the U.S. officially in 1988.
