Materials and MethodsMaterials and Methods

We conducted a Medline (PubMed 2005) search to identify publications in English through January 2004. Key words and phrases used to search the database for both animal and human studies included nitrates, nitrites, drinking water, pregnancy, fetus, birth defects, spontaneous abortions, prematurity, stillbirth, health effects, low birth weight, growth, reproductive outcomes, and drinking water contaminants. We also searched for internal publications from the CDC, USGS, and U.S. EPA via the agencies' websites.
