Wow people panic about things a lot these days. Use your heads, going overboard on just about anything isn't healthy. And do a little objective research about things before you freak out. Of course searching for "nitrates/nitrites bad for health" is going to return all the horror stories about them. But if you do some real reading, from credible sources (not necessarily wikipedia), you'll find that your body produces way more than you'll ever eat.
In the end, you know your body (or you should at least), and you should eat what you know is good for you. Stop believing every bad thing you hear and spend some time learning about things so you can make your own informed decisions.
Spreading uneducated fear about these things doesn't really help anyone.
