Parents who have been fretting over the low levels of arsenic found in apple juice can feel better about buying one of their kids’ favorite drinks, according to The Associated Press.



The AP reports the Food and Drug Administration is setting a new limit on the level of arsenic allowed in apple juice, after more than a year of public pressure from consumer groups worried about the contaminant’s effects on children.

Studies have shown the juice contains very low levels of arsenic, a cancer-causing agent found in everything from water to soil to pesticides, the AP reports.
