5 Cancer-Causing Juices You Should Stop Drinking Immediately

Arsenic is a well-known heavy metal that has been linked with the occurrence of cancer, diarrhea and kidney damage. This harmful element comes in a natural form and inorganic form.

Apple concentrate is the basic material used for the production of almost every American apple juice. According to some sources, one type of apple juice usually includes apple concentrate produced in several countries (up to 7 in some cases).

Even though the use of arsenic has been forbidden in the United States for several decades now, it turns out that there are countries in which arsenic can be found in pesticides used during the process of growth of apples and in the water supply too.

Dr. Oz has found that many of the well-known brands of apple juice are “enriched” with arsenic.

He tested more than one hundred samples of popular brands bought from three cities in the US. In addition, he revealed that more than 60% of apple juice concentrate in the United States comes from China.

Additionally, Consumer Reports conducted an independent investigation focused on the presence of arsenic in foods.

This investigation concluded that about 10% of grape juice and apple juice samples they have used have arsenic levels that were way above the standard set for drinking water (10 parts per one billion).

They have contacted Dr. Oz and told him that they are expanding their research and that they are trying to prove that the vast majority of arsenic found in apple juice is actually inorganic (carcinogenic type).

In addition, they have also confirmed that at least two types of organic, natural arsenic found in apple and grape juice have the potential to cause health problems.

Of course, the inorganic type of arsenic is way more harmful and more carcinogenic and these facts were confirmed by the CDC.

Finally, the Food and Drug Administration has also released data related to their monitoring program focused on arsenic levels in juice. At least nine test results have confirmed arsenic levels above 23 parts per one billion (two times more than allowed). Dr. Oz had 10 tests that have confirmed this.

5 Methods to Treat Arsenic Poisoning

  1. Blood transfusion
  2. Bowel irrigation – a process in which large quantities of polyethylene glycol solution goes through the gastrointestinal tract and eventually out of the system.
  3. Taking mineral supplements
  4. Chelation therapy. This type of therapy relies on specific chemicals known as dimercaprol and dimercaptosuccinic in order to separate the arsenic from clean blood proteins.
  5. Monitoring kidney work.
