What Carcinogen In Zantac Causes Cancer?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has declared that many medications using the ingredient ranitidine, including some products commonly known as the brand-name drug Zantac, contain a nitrosamine impurity called N-nitrosodimethylamine. It is abbreviated NDMA and, while at low levels, is still a carcinogen which means it has the ability to cause cancer just like asbestos, glyphosate and talcum powder. NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen based on results from laboratory tests. NDMA is a known environmental contaminant and found in water and foods, including meats, dairy products, and vegetables.
The FDA has been investigating NDMA and other nitrosamine impurities in hyper tension (high blood pressure) meds as well as heart failure meds like Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (ARBs) since last year. In the case of ARBs, the FDA has recommended numerous recalls as it discovered unacceptable levels of nitrosamines.
Zantac Recalls & Ranitidine Recalls
Ranitidine and Zantac have recently been recalled. In recent weeks Zantac has been removed from national chain stores such as drug stores CVS and Walgreens. In addition, WalMart has also stopped carrying Zantac due to the recall. If you use Zantac please stop immediately and consult your healthcare provider and have a full check-up.
