What are Nitrates?

The Effects of Nitrates in your Water

Excessive levels of nitrate in drinking water have caused serious illness and sometimes death. The serious illness in infants (aka Blue Baby Syndrome) is due to the conversion of nitrate to nitrite by the body, which can interfere with the oxygen-carrying capacity of the childs blood. This can be an acute condition in which health deteriorates rapidly over a period of days. Symptoms include shortness of breath and blueness of the skin.

Nitrates and nitrites have the potential to cause diuresis, increased starchy deposits and hemorrhaging of the spleen. In high concentrations, nitrates can be harmful to humans as well as animals.
