Abstract:
Infants and certain elderly people are the most susceptible to nitrates found in water. When these individuals drink water or eat foods that contain high levels of nitrates, their blood can lose the ability to effectively carry oxygen. This condition is called methemoglobinemia or blue baby syndrome. This article discusses the health problem caused by nitrates found in your drinking water, and the way to test for those nitrates.
