Vegetarian Tip

Vegetable Nitrate is found in vegetables, particularly in salads and leafy vegetables. It is most concentrated in plants that don't get a lot of light (those grown during the winter months and in hot-houses). In your digestive tract, microorganisms can turn nitrate into nitrite. If nitrite is present in large amounts, it can bond with amino acids and produce carcinogenic substances in your body. You can avoid this by buying products in season, by buying certified organic products, and by eating a wide variety of foods.
