Zantac Cancer Lawsuits
What you need to know:
Zantac is the brand name of a very popular heartburn medication called ranitidine, used by millions of people since the 1980s. Zantac (ranitidine) is a type of drug known as an H2 blocker, or H2 antagonist. It decreases stomach acid by blocking histamine receptors in the stomach. It is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and other related conditions in which acid backs up from the stomach into the esophagus, causing heartburn.
Lab testing revealed that ranitidine contained high levels of known carcinogen (or cancer causing) N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). According to the FDA, the maximum safe level of daily NDMA exposure is 96 ng. One study revealed that one Zantac pill contained 2,511,469 ng of NDMA, which equals approximately 26,000 times the maximum daily limit of NDMA. New studies have revealed that the amount of NDMA present in Zantac can increase over time and at higher temperatures.
