 I am still reading up on this but I guess Gerber Apple Juice has the highest trace amount and it's more than the FDA allows??  I found this link on it but what do you think about this??

Apparently there is not enough arsenic cause us juice drinkers are still alive.

Actually, the FDA has not set a standard on arsenic in apple juice and that's the problem. So legally Gerber can put as much as they want in it because the FDA hasn't set a limit. 

I watched this earlier today. I'm just going to serve my son other juices in the meantime until this is figured out.

I'm not too surprised, but like a PP said, we're probably OK if we don't drink it all the time.  It also is one thing that makes me glad DS doesn't like juice.

Arsenic is naturally in many juices. Oz's study didn't differentiate between organic and inorganic arsenic.

I only buy Old Orchard's juice, so I guess that's fine.  I haven't died yet..
