Avoid Nitrates in your Foods

Dec 16, 2008


Nitrates are additives put into most preserved meats like bacon, salami, cold cuts, cured ham and sausages.

They are bad for you because they are converted into a carcinogen, cancer causing agent, in the body which in turn can result in malignant tumor growth over time.

Children are especially susceptible to nitrite poisoning. These carcinogenic compounds have been associated with cancer of the oral cavity, urinary bladder, esophagus, stomach and brain and child leukemia. One study found that children eating more than 12 hot dogs per month have nine times the normal risk of developing childhood leukemia.

So make sure you and your children are avoiding meats that contain nitrates. Try organic meats and learn to read the ingredients on the labels of the foods you purchase to consume. There are brands without nitrates out there.
