Contains levels considered
hazardous in drinking water

Arsenic is used in pesticides.

That's how it gets into the juice.

There's more arsenic in many top juice brands that would be permitted in drinking water.

How is the FDA helping us?

It isn't. It continues to do its usual job of shilling for the food processing industry.

Who is at risk?

Children and infants with small, growing bodies.

Who cares?

Not the FDA and certainly not the juice manufacturers.

You can brew teas like mint, hibiscus, and camomile and add some sweetener for a small fraction of what packaged juice costs. Clean, health enhancing, easy, cheap.
