It said one possible reason was that nitrites
in the body can form carcinogenic compounds called nitrosamines that can damage DNA.
were blamed as one possible reason for this, as they can form carcinogenic compounds called nitrosamines that can damage DNA.
Soil homogenization: During the process of isolating and quantifying nitrifying bacteria, a previous culture was created in an enriched and selective medium with ammonium or nitrite
, together with bicarbonate as a carbon source, which could last for minutes, hours or days, since these bacteria grow slowly due to the low energy yield of the process (Fiencke et al.
The low-concentrate supplementation probably contributed to the nitrate/nitrite
poisoning, since ruminal microbiota ability to detoxify nitrates and nitrites
is energy-depending (VALLI, 2007).
But there's something about nitrates and nitrites
that make themdangerous.
And how many realize that naturally occurring nitrates or nitrites
are no safer than added nitrates or nitrites
A positive nitrite
test strongly suggests UTI because nitrites
in the urine indicate viable gram-negative organisms also are present in the urine.

and N-Nitroso Compounds, Environmental Health Criteria, 5, World Health Organization, Geneva, Switzerland, 1978.
The World Health Organization considers nitrites
and nitrates to be probable human carcinogens; California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment is now considering a similar designation.
The major immediate breakdown product of NO in human plasma is nitrite
But like any ecosystem, the key drivers are invisible: colonies of nitrosomonas bacteria convert ammonia excreted by fish into nitrite
, while nitrobacter bacteria convert the toxic substance into nitrates to be taken up by plants.
oxidize the iron atoms in hemoglobin from ferrous iron (2+) to ferric iron (3+), rendering it unable to carry oxygen (Kim-shapiro et al.
