and nitrites in early vegetables and potatoes sold in the marketplace of Bialystok in the year 1992," Roczniki Panstwowego Zakladu Higieny, vol.
Their results indicate that winter rye crops seeded in not-ill corn/soybean systems when the cash crops were mature have the potential to reduce annual nitrate
loss in field drainage by about 43 percent, or by 18 pounds per acre.
Methods: In this experiment Hematological and serobiochemical parameters as well as histopathological examination of liver and kidney were estimated in 5 assigned groups as follows the 1st group served as a control the 2nd group was orally received sodium nitrate
1gm/L drinking waterfor 8 weeks.
turn to nitrites when they reached the mouth or stomach then turn into nitric oxide, which can be good, and nitrosamines, which can be bad for our bodies.
contents are higher in stems of numerous fodder crops than in leaves, as those parts which are closer to the ground contain more nitrates
; roots and stem typically have higher nitrate
levels, followed by leaves (Westcott et al., 1998; Malagoli et al., 2005; Qiu et al., 2014).
Negative results of tests on the content of nitrates
showed melon, beet and lettuce.
'This is the first time the effects of dietary nitrates
on muscular degeneration risk has been measured, ' said lead researcher Bamini Gopinath from Westmead Institute for Medical Research in Australia.
[USA], Oct 22 ( ANI ): According to a new study eating vegetable nitrates
, found mainly in green leafy vegetables and beetroot, could help reduce your risk of developing early-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD), an eye disease that causes vision loss.
Insufficient concentrations of plant-available forms of nitrogen, such as nitrate
, can limit crop yields and primary production in terrestrial and aquatic environments (Conley et al., 2009; Havlin, Beaton, Tisdale, & Nelson, 1999).
, ubiquitously present in the environment as one of the components in the nitrogen cycle, is an essential nutrient to the growth of vegetables.
The occurrence of a drought period followed by a rainy period is considered an important factor that results in the increase of nitrate
concentration in the plants, causing an accelerated growth and absortion of toxic levels of nitrates
(RIET-ALVARIZA, 1993; CHEEKE, 1998; RADOSTITS et al., 2007).
Some people use the words nitrites and nitrates
interchangeably, but they're both different compounds.
