  • constantly present. Nitrates are tolerated at much higher levels than nitrites and nitrosamines. However, nitrates are readily reduced to nitrites, and nitrites react with amines to form carcinogenic nitrosamines. Most of the hazardous levels of these substances in food and drinking water have been enumerated for the various species in th. reviews by the Committees of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS 1972a,b), Wolff and Wasserman (1972), Turner and Kienholz (1972), and Emerick (1974… CONTINUE READING
