If I recall my correctly arsenic occurs naturally in apple seeds.  You aren't supposed to eat the seeds and you sure as heck aren't supposed to grind them up into your juice.  So on the one hand everybody can stop panicking about apple juice and on the other hand we should makes sure that the brand we buy is careful about their seed removal.  I wonder if Dr. Oz explains that or if he is happy to hype the heck out of it for ratings?  The Stir as usualy is happy to hype the heck out of every stinking thing!  Uugh!

 

What is the worst hyped headline you hae ever read on The Stir?

Wow was I off, it is a form of cyanide not arsenic. But I will let you read what I found.
