Researchers have found a link between nitrates in the environment and increased deaths from Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and Parkinson’s and other diseases of aging.
The study, published in the “Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease,” found strong parallels between deaths and exposure to nitrates, nitrites and nitrosamines due to processed and preserved foods as well as fertilizers.
Nitrates are found in many food products including bacon, cured meats, cheese products, beer and water. Nitrates are generated by the high temperatures of frying and grilling, and our bodies make nitrates in the highly acid conditions of the stomach. Nitrates also get into our body through fertilizers, pesticides, contaminated water supplies and cosmetics as well as through the manufacturing and processing of rubber and latex products. Over 90 percent of nitrates tested have been found to cause cancer in various organs of the body MORE>>>>>>>>>>>
