Due to the intense use of synthetic nitrogen fertilisers and livestock manure in modern day agriculture, food (particularly vegetables) and drinking water may contain higher concentrations of nitrate than in the past. The mean intake of nitrate per person in Europe is about 50-140 mg/day and in the US about 40-100 mg/day. In the proximal small… CONTINUE READING
