Nitrates in Your Water supply, the Health Risks – How can You Protect Yourself?

Nitrogen CycleWater is the source of life.

We need it for general cleanliness in our homes, and the farms near us cannot survive without it.

Drinking safe water keeps the doctor away.

Water has numerous pollutants; they may include amoeba, bacteria or even chemical substances and metals.

Nitrogen is one of the major pollutants found in tap water.

What is Nitrogen?

It is a compound naturally or synthetically found in our environment.

Harmful Nitrates in the soil emanate from septic systems, fertilizers and manure storage.

Effects of Nitrates

Nitrates are a primary cause of several problems especially to infants when it exceeds the required levels of 10 mg/L in the body.

One, it is a major cause of Methemoglobin, blood contains Haemoglobin which is responsible for transporting Oxygen in the blood. When Nitrates are present, it converts Haemoglobin to Methaemoglobin making it much more difficult to transport Oxygen.

Reduced Oxygen in the brain leads to death.

In the U.K, it has been a major cause of infant mortality.

Pregnant women around the UK have been severely affected by Methaemoglobin, this is because their bodies are weak and are not able to convert it into a manageable state like normal adults.

 Have you noticed the level of cancer is increasing in the UK?

Continuous consumption of Nitrate causes Nitrosamines that are known to cause cancer.
