What fruits are high in arsenic?


Q. What fruits are high in arsenic?


A. Arsenic is a naturally occurring element found in the air, soil, and water. Since all crops (fruits, vegetables, grains, rice) are dependent on the elements for growth and development, they can take up trace amounts of arsenic. You may find it comforting to know that the FDA has programs in place to test for harmful substances, such as arsenic, in a variety of foods and beverages to keep the public safe.
