We are all exposed to some levels of arsenic naturally through drinking water, food and even in the air we breathe. However, you need to keep an eye out for foods that contain high levels of arsenic. Recent news has put into spotlight that many organic foods and even baby formula have high levels. Some cereal bars tested at 12-128 parts per billion. That’s very alarming when you think the EPA has only set safe limits for water (10 parts per billion), but not for food. These high levels come from either the use of pesticides or just from the compound naturally occurring in the ground. 
Look at your labels! Arsenic is linked to cancers and chronic diseases and we need to do our part to make sure we and our families are staying safe with the foods we eat.
