Heartburn Medication ‘Zantac’ Has Been Linked to Several Forms of Cancer
Zantac is a brand name version of the heartburn medication ‘ranitidine’. In the fall of 2019, federal regulators notified manufacturers, medical professionals, and consumers that ranitidine contained alarmingly high levels of a substance called nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA)—a known carcinogen that has been linked to several forms of cancer, including:
- Small intestine cancer;
- Stomach cancer;
- Liver cancer;
- Colon cancer;
- Esophagus cancer; and
- Bladder cancer.
Initially, regulators recommended voluntary recalls of Zantac and similar products. However, as more information has come out, research continues to find that ranitidine poses a very serious risk to public health. On April 1st, 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) publicly requested all drug manufacturers to withdraw prescription/over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine medications from the market as soon as possible—including Zantac.
Questions are being raised about what the major pharmaceutical companies knew and when they knew it. Additional research on the extreme, cancer-causing dangers of Zantac is still being published. We are keeping a close watch on all updates.
