Abstract

Breast fluid and blood samples taken from four healthy non-lactating women 1 hr after ingestion of a high nitrate-nitrite meal were analysed for volatile nitrosamines. N-Nitrosamines were not detected in the breast-fluid samples, but both N-nitrosodimethylamine and N-nitrosodiethylamine were found in the blood samples. The levels, however, did not show a consistent increase over those in blood samples taken from the same subject before consumption of the test meal.
