Speaking up for Nitrite

“Eat Clean, Get Lean” in your April/May issue contained inaccurate information about nitrite safety.  Approximately 93% of human nitrite intake comes form vegetables, particularly leafy and root vegetables and from human saliva.  The National Toxicology Program concluded that nitrite is not a carcinogen.  The National Institutes of Health also found that nitrite is a simple treatment of preeclampsia, high blood pressure, would healing and organ transplantation.  The amount of nitrite in cured meats is minuscule, but it performs an important function:  preventing bacteria growth and food-borne illnesses.
