Perils of arsenic in baby food, raw dough, and licorice tea

Which baby foods contain dangerous levels of arsenicThis week’s off-site posts addressed a range of potential perils in common foods but also included good news on a food that’s often unfairly maligned.   In my Nutrition Diva podcast, I explain what you need to know about  arsenic levels in apple juice, brown rice, and baby formula.   On the Quick and Dirty blog, I explain why it’s really not a good idea to eat raw cookie dough–even if it doesn’t include raw eggs.  My weekly newsletter included a Q&A on the possible appetite suppressing effects of licorice tea–as well as the possible dangers of consuming it every day.

Happy reading!
