On this episode of EnvIowa, we sit down with Pete Weyer, Interim Director of the Center for Health Effects of Environmental Contamination, to discuss his recent research, which looks at nitrates in Iowa drinking water and their effects on human health. A number of studies suggest links between elevated nitrate concentrations in drinking water and other health issues, including birth defects, cancers, thyroid problems and a variety of other health concerns.
