Arsenic in fruit juices ?

Seriously ??!!! Latest studies found that fruit juices can be a source of arsenic poising (and leading to cancer) in the long run.

The brand that we are so familiar with - Tropicana ... there apples juices contain arsenic.

Guess our grandparents and parents had a point when they tried to dissuade us from having food outside !

recently on TV, they were making a big deal of arsenic in rice and why pregnant women should avoid it... well, if you look around, you will find foods lot more dangerous than these.... foods that are packed in cardboard and tin (cans) are internally lined with material with high Bisphenol-A (BPA) content.. as if the preservatives are not bad enough, we have BPA also entering our system... TOXIC FOOD -- that is what FDI in retail would have brought to India

Yeah cancer in bling bling packing!

Its a side effect Fast paced and branded lifestyle.Most of these brands would never have survived if not for various brand ambassadors.
If only consumers take time to think and get more closer to nature the real way..but not nature in tetra packing.

Are you kiddin' me Sorci suggesting that Alec Baldwin was pulling a publicity stunt for that brand of a computer game?I can't believe that he's that creative.But,acting is his profession why not use it in life?

It's sad if these juices cause cancer,when folks thought they were drinking a healthy drink.

Deepa,

We need stricter norms and random sample checks to ensure that what is marketed is free from such risks. But who would do that? End game is money in pockets.

Take care
