Studies in animal models established the feasibility of sodium nitrite contributing to gastric carcinogenesis primarily via conversion to nitrosamines. Most animal studies did not corroborate this assumption. Exposure of humans to nitrates is primarily from vegetables. Since a fraction of nitrate is reduced to nitrite by oral bacteria, the largest source of nitrite exposure is also from vegetables. Meat processed with nitrite has reducing agents added that virtually… CONTINUE READING
