Juice for Thought

A new Consumer Reports investigation revealed arsenic levels exceeding federal drinking-water standards in several major juice brands. Most of it being inorganic arsenic, a known carcinogen. So what does that mean? They're putting it in... See the complete test results here.
But don't stop there, it has been detected at disturbing levels in food too, which suggests that more must be done to reduce dietary exposure.

We know, children drink a lot of juice. 35% of children 5 and younger drink juice in quantities exceeding pediatricians' recommendation. How much juice does your child drink in a day? What is your favourite choice of juice? Welch's, Tropicana, Ocean Spray, etc... Have you ever made your own? Now you can.
