Since nitrates are very soluble and do not bind to soils, they have a high potential to migrate to groundwater. For the short-term, excessive levels of nitrate in drinking water have caused serious illness and sometimes death.

This can be an acute condition in which health deteriorates rapidly over a period of days. Symptoms include shortness ...
