Science just keeps coming for the things I love. Their latest victim? Delicious, perfect, sugary fruit juices. That's right, there's a new study that's found some concerning things in leading fruit juice brands, and it's enough to stop even a sugar fiend like your author from slurping down those fruity beverages like there's no tomorrow.
No, we're not talking about the sugar content, which already has many parents limiting their kids' access to fruit juice. And we're not talking about GMOs or non-organic fruits or any of the other usual health food buzzwords. Instead, we're talking about something that you really don't ever want to be associated with your food: heavy metals.
Of course, it's not as simple as "fruit juice is bad and contains heavy metals." There's still a lot of debate about how much is safe to ingest, and how much we should limit fruit juices. So scared moms: keep reading and find out if your kids are safe drinking the juice.
