  • 55 parts per billion found in juice doesn't surprise or alarm me. The average person consumes about 8 micrograms of arsenic on a daily basis - it's out in the environment, in almost everything. Doses of more than 3 to 10 parts per million (a full three orders of magnitude higher than that found in the juice) are required to have any health affects. Our bodies are naturally designed to deal with toxins, strange proteins, and contaminants in the world - which is good since none of us live in a sterile bubble.

  • It is also in meat, and the water supply...always has been. It exists naturally in the Earth. I would be more worried about the hormones in the food supply personally.
