Diagnosed with cancer
after taking Zantac?
ALERT: April 1, 2020 – “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced it is requesting manufacturers withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine (Zantac) drugs from the market immediately.”
Since the 1980s, ranitidine (brand name: Zantac) has been associated with NDMA. While Zantac is not contaminated with NDMA, it contains nitrite (N) and dimethylamine (DMA). Combined, they form the carcinogen NDMA.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was notified in June of 2019 that routine testing done in Valisure’s labs had linked Zantac to N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). FDA’s own testing found unacceptable levels of NDMA in Zantac.
“The results [of several case–control studies and one cohort study] are supportive of the assumption that NDMA consumption is positively associated with either gastric or colorectal cancer.” (World Health Organization)
On April 1, 2020, the FDA issued a recall on Zantac. In addition to NDMA concerns, “the agency has determined that the impurity in some ranitidine products increases over time and when stored at higher than room temperatures may result in consumer exposure to unacceptable levels of this impurity.”
