Health risk potential caused by nitrate concentrations in drinking water resources of selected provinces in Turkey are evaluated for 2009. Nitrate concentrations were statistically evaluated and exposure and risk levels of nitrate for human health were calculated according to USEPA's Risk Assessment Model for 8 provinces of Turkey including Eskişehir, Antalya, Bursa, Edirne, Erzurum, İzmir, Samsun and Trabzon which has routine water quality tests performed on drinking water sources by General Directorate of State Hydraulic Works. In this thesis the incidence rates of cancer in these provinces were correlated with nitrate in drinking water, using Ministry of Health data.
