Nitrates

When we talk about bacon, the fear is in the fat and the nitrates. I can tell you that you can just stick to two pieces, and not fear the fat. But what about the nitrates you may ask. There hasn’t been a study that can confirm that dietary nitrates elevate any particular health risk. But furthermore, many of us don’t realize that there are plenty of nitrates in vegetables like beets, celery, and lettuce. You probably aren’t avoiding the stuff, as is.
