Zantac® and its generic versions, ranitidine, are very popular heartburn/antacid medications that have been on the market since the early 1980s. They belong to a group of drugs called histamine-2 blockers. Zantac® (ranitidine) works by reducing the amount of acid your stomach produces. This medication is mainly used to treat acid reflux and other conditions in which the stomach produces too much acid such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and other gastrointestinal issues.
In September 2019, Valisure, an online pharmacy based in Connecticut, informed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that it had found the cancer-causing chemical N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in some batches of Zantac® (ranitidine). Shortly after the FDA announcement, retailers including Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid pulled prescription and over-the-counter formulas of Zantac® from their shelves.
Mounting evidence also allegedly shows that Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim, the big pharma companies that make Zantac® (ranitidine hydrochloride), concealed the Zantac® cancer link from millions of people who took the drug for heartburn, gastric and duodenal ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), sour stomach, Barrett’s esophagus, acid reflux, and other issues. This deception came as the companies made unprecedented profits from Zantac®, the first drug to generate $1 billion in sales.
The FDA has warned that Zantac® may be contaminated with cancer-causing agent NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine) normally used in petroleum-based industrial products. Potential carcinogenic effects of NDMA exposure include, but are not limited to:
- Liver Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Stomach Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Uterine Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Other Digestive Tract Cancers
Over the last 40 years, several studies have made the case that Zantac® causes cancer. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “NDMA is clearly carcinogenic. There is overwhelming evidence that NDMA is mutagenic and clastogenic.”
