With the recent expose' on arsenic levels in some varieties of apple juice, Dr.Oz is taking some heat from the FDA and others. Oz claims that many brands of apple juice contain much higher levels of arsenic than are considered safe.
The FDA claims that Oz was referring to organic arsenic, which passes through the body, and is considered harmless, versus inorganic arsenic, which is present in some pesticides and can pose a cancer risk if consumed over long periods of time.
