Nitrates are good for you……?

One of the joys of having a garden this time of the year is leafy greens. Spinach, chard, rucola and many different types of fantastic fresh juicy salad heads and leafs. We eat kilo’s of the stuff and the only thing that bothers now and then is cleaning it.

A lot of leafy greens contain nitrate, arugula quite some and I’m sure we top the safe limits of nitrate intake.

Recently I read some research papers on the subject and it turns out no one is really sure how much is too much and it might be that high intake of nitrate is even good for you.

A sigh of relief! Salad leafs here we come again!
