Revealing what he says are dangerous levels of arsenic found in some popular brands of apple juice warning parents to be where.
There are two kinds of arsenic one that occurs naturally and is said to be harmless.
And one that toxic.
Apparently -- doctor only tested for the total -- -- of arsenic in the apple juice.
And now he's public enemy number one with the juice industry and with the FDA.
The Fed calling his investigation irresponsible.
Does he faced some legal exposure.
For this report which has a lot of parents very concerned let's ask our panel defense attorney mark -- -- former prosecutor and cohost of the five Kimberly -- our panel so.
Parents are really upset about -- I mean you know what parent and give their kid apple juice -- your doctor odds with pretty well respected him very well known.
Saying your poisoning your kids are right that's -- what he said.
But talking about the fact that arsenic is in the apple juice and that's bad for your child over the long -- you get very nervous.
Mark you tell me might he face a legal exposure here and if so why.
I don't believe that there will be a successful lawsuit but some people may threaten -- to him.
I'll tell you why he will prevail the First Amendment.
I'm not necessarily suggesting that his findings are accurate in fact what he's doing if -- according to him trying to raise awareness.
May be apple juice may be harmful but more significantly what we eat there may -- things there that are harmful for us.
And at the end of the day his messages that apparently says it's on -- show.
I'd still give my children apple -- In spite of what I've learned.
So again was it responsible.
I don't know could've done in a better way may be but is it lawful under the First Amendment the answers yet.
-- it -- because as you about you have other reputable scientists coming -- doctors saying this was irresponsible there was no foundation for a he's created a national scare now.
And really potentially damage to the juice makers who -- sitting there saying.
What how to we targeted here and could very well hurt their bottom line.
But I get apple did in my fridge -- into the brand that he talking about I think apple do every day I give it to my little boy of course.
Parents are going to be concerned they are concerned about the health of their children.
You have to look at the larger picture here we liked the fact that he's doing an investigation and being -- public in consumer -- how ever.
The fact that he did -- testing in an irresponsible and unreliable.

Arsenic in apple juice of course that number is going to -- the FDA regulations of what -- -- But what you need to know and as you mentioned in your heat.
And organic garden arsenic is.
Harmless that's not gonna cause problems at the in organic the FDA went a bit here September 10 and -- and -- the same lot.
That doctor hot day and town they did not exceed their regulations or their limit and also tested other products.
From that lot to make sure in terms of quality control.
They did the responsible thing.
Posted this on the web -- to let the public now it is irresponsible and potentially financially could have an impact on doctor -- said that -- he put misleading and false information out there.
Not market is -- -- even if you think doctor Oz is just offering his opinion -- opinion be actionable.
Where it is not backed up.
Fully by the science.
It can be and I'm very eager to see what he does on -- show.
I hope and expect that he put the letter from the FDA did which clearly spells out I went back on there.
-- him also saying again in his own children still -- apple does he hasn't stopped them from drinking -- I video -- says he also says it even says that organic arsenic.
Eight isn't necessarily -- that he goes on to say that you know over the long -- it could be dangerous so he's saying -- kids are drinking apple just yet.
But over the long -- -- gators in if I make the apple -- you're holding there.
I don't like that statement I really think -- her my bottom line I guarantee they're people were hearing this thing on not column like you drink apple just -- I know where I agree -- a little brat.
