Scientists say that arsenic is a natural substance and is so abundant in the Earth's soil that often ends in most foods we eat.

"It is an inorganic form of arsenic in an environment that is toxic, and measure the total arsenic is not informative," said Aaron Barchowsky, professor of environmental health, University of Pittsburgh, who studied the toxicity of arsenic in ' drinking water for 15 years.
As a producer, "Dr. Oz Show," said the apple juice in their tests measured levels of total arsenic and arsenic does not distinguish between organic and inorganic.
