You make the call:

A new proposal would set the first maximum standard for arsenic in apple juice as the Food and Drug Administration continues to test for the substance.

Although no one says the juice is unsafe, the issue drew attention last week when TV’s Dr. Mehmet Oz said lab testing found what he suggested were troubling levels of arsenic.

The FDA, however, found no raised levels even in the batch Oz used. Later, even Oz said juice is safe.

Now U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York is calling for the first standards of arsenic in juice. He says the rising amount of foreign juice prompts the need.

Note that there is no problem, according to both the FDA and even the teevee doctor who initially made the claim. Does that fact slow Schumer’s race to push yet more legislation? Clearly, not.

Please, no one tell Chuckles about this.
