Heartburn. Acid Reflux. For years, drug companies marketed Ranitidine (Zantac) as a miracle drug. Drug companies even advertised the drug as a lifestyle drug allowing patients to continue eating heartburn-causing foods. What was the cost of this miracle drug that produced blockbuster profits? The public is now learning how ranitidine breaks down into the chemical NDMA, a toxic cancer-causing chemical. How many innocent consumers may have suffered life-threatening cancer injuries from the drug? It’s a topic I’ve discussed in several articles.
For an overview of Ranitidine (Zantac) claims, you can read my article titled Zantac Cancer Injuries. I published the article on our law firm website. My article provides an overview of the drug Zantac, its history and its relationship to cancer-causing NDMA.
The drug Ranitidine (Zantac) reacts with acid in the stomach as well as enzymes in other organs to chemically create NDMA in the human body. For more in-depth discussion about Ranitidine and how the drug chemically produces carcinogenic NDMA, you can read my blog post titled Four Ways Zantac Causes Cancer. I’ve also written some other articles following the growing research and ongoing litigation involving Zantac and multiple cancer injuries. You can read those articles on this blog.
