FDA Disputes Dr. Oz Suggestions
The Federal Food and Drug Administration is disputing suggestions by television host Dr. Mehmet Oz, about health concerns from trace amounts of arsenic in apple juice. Dr. Oz has said that a lab found what he considers “concerning levels” of arsenic in many juices. The FDA says that its tests show a much lower level of arsenic than the tests that Dr. Oz refers to. The head of the Centers for Disease Control scolded Dr. Oz on Good Morning America for what he called an “extremely irresponsible report”. A spokesman for the “Oz” show sent an email defending the doctors position. The FDA continues to dispute the testing that was done by the TV show.
