Dietary nitrates, nitrites, and N-nitroso compounds and cancer risk: a review of the epidemiologic evidence


Eichholzer, Monika; Gutzwiller, Felix (1998). Dietary nitrates, nitrites, and N-nitroso compounds and cancer risk: a review of the epidemiologic evidence. Nutrition Reviews, 56(4):95-105.

Abstract

Experimental animal studies have shown N-nitroso compounds (NOC) to be potent carcinogens. Epidemiologic evidence of the carcinogenic potential of dietary NOC and precursor nitrates and nitrites in humans remains inconclusive with regard to the risk of stomach, brain, esophageal, and nasopharyngeal cancers. Inadequate available data could obscure a small to moderate effect of NOC.
