To humans: essentially none.

Nitrates are harmful to some fish species in large quantities, but are also good for plants as they are essentially fertilizer.

my tanks continue to have high nitrate levels. I am doing water changed at 50% weekly, while adding TLC Water Conditioner, and levels refuse to drop. What else can I do to help the nitrate levels drop?

..exactly how high are they? May I suggest changing 30% of the water twice per week? (for example 30% on Monday and another 30% on Thursday)

You should be able to fix the problem in the two smaller tanks by adding plants to them, or adding more if they already have some. Water lettuce is especially good at removing nitrates. In the larger tank, you can use something such as Nitra-Zorb which is a resin (in a bag) that removes nitrates and which is reusable.

I have been changing 50% of the water weekly. I will try 30% Monday and 30% Thursday and see what happens. I have tons of plants. I have Amazon Swords, and 2 other types I forget the name. I will see if I can buy some water lettuce in my LFS today and let you know. I will also change 30% of the water, should I add any chemicals?

Only dechlorinator should be fine. What are your nitrate readings?
