Arsenic in food?

alright, so green vibrance, a greens powder, has a level of arsenic 24 mcg per .4ounce.

which leads me to question the safety of this product?

you can find infortmation about this with the google search function. 'arsenic and green vibrance'

i realized there is more arsenic because of how much things are in the product, its concentrated. which makes the arsenic concentrated and worse for you right?

so the question is, do you drink green vibrance for the health benefits everyone rages about, which includes the high arsenic levels, or do you return the product for a better one?
