Deadly Cantaloupe and Arsenic in Applejuice!
Amelia_WebMD_Staff posted:
More heads up after this week's contaminated ground turkey?!? YES!

The CDC has sent out a nationwide alert over Colorado cantaloupe carrying deadly listeria bacteria. Two people have already died, while many others have been hospitalized after eating the melons.

Also in the news, arsenic is found in apple juice . While the FDA says that the amounts are nothing to worry about, let's at least be aware to decide for our own families' safety.

Take care and have a great weekend!

Thanks Amelia, I actually saw the information about the arsenic being in our apple juice on the Dr. Oz show. It was really upseting to me. What gets me is that he found more arsenic in the juices like Motts and Juicey Juice which are the juices marketed the most as being safe for our children. He found the least in Minute Maid, which had 1 point over the amount allowed in water. Also Gerber had high amounts of Arsenic as well. I am really considering buying a juicer, and just making my own. Using organic fruit of course.

It wasnt to many years ago they claimed you shouldnt eat store bought apples for some reason i dont remember. It killed apple farmers and what a couple weeks later they said you'd have to eat like 1000 apples a day for it to hurt you. I think they need to get all the facts straight about the apple juice since only 1 doc made the claim b4 they scare millions of ppl.
