exposure in addition to methemoglobinemia, such as cancer and reproductive and developmental effects. It then characterizes the dose-response relationships between exposure and health effects. The human exposure to nitrate and nitrite and the relative contribution of drinking water to that exposure are assessed. Finally, the MCLGs that provide adequate margins of safety for human health are identified.
