    Default Arsenic Found In 11 Bottled Water Brands, Consumer Report Says

    Out of 130 bottled water brands tested, Consumer Reports found 11 contained detectable arsenic levels, including six with 3 parts per billion or more. The federal standard for arsenic in bottled water is 10 ppb, but Consumer Reports said current research suggests levels above 3 ppb "are potentially dangerous to drink over extended periods of time."

    The six with 3 ppb or higher were Whole Foods' Starkey brand, Keurig Dr Pepper's Peñafiel, Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water, Danone's Volvic, and the Crystal Creamery and EartH2O regional brands.

    "Inorganic" arsenic is in the soil & water. "Organic" arsenic is mainly found in fish and shellfish, and is regarded almost harmless. Certain foods, like rice and cruciferous veggies, are highest in arsenic. Arsenic occurs in nature typically bonded with other elements, like sulfur. Cruciferous veggies, like broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and green leafy veggies, like kale and collards, are all high in sulfur. So, these veggies tend to attract more arsenic than non-cruciferous veggies, like spinach, chard, asparagus, lettuce, etc. Rice is very high in arsenic, too. If rice is a regular staple in the diet, best to choose basmati rice, which has the least amounts of arsenic of all other rice.
