Making Simple Dietary Changes Can Replace The Need For Antacids

Retail giants Walgreen, Walmart, Rite Aid, and CVS removed Zantac and other over the counter antacid drugs from store shelves when it was revealed that users were likely to develop stomach or bladder cancer from taking the drug

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 - Now that popular antacid drug Zantac has been withdrawn from the US market by its maker Sanofi, it should be noted that at one time the drug was the drug of choice or Americans for treating gastric and duodenal ulcers and also erosive esophagitis. Zantac (ranitidine) blocks stomach acid histamines better known as H2 receptors that line the stomach and release acid when stimulated. Ranitidine, known by the brand name Zantac, also has been found to contain NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine) a cancer-causing contaminant found many foods we eat every day. N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is used by scientists to induce cancer in laboratory animals and can be found in both the prescription and over the counter brands as well as generic versions of Zantac. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined the Zantac and other antacid drugs have unexpectedly high levels of NDMA that can cause cancer. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), repeatedly ingesting NDMA may accumulate in the body and lead to colorectal, gastric, and liver cancer. Originally, NDMA was a byproduct of manufacturing rocket fuel.

Zantac stomach cancer lawsuits are being filed by individuals that have become cancer-stricken by NDMA in heartburn and anti-acid drugs. According to Drug "Zantac lawsuits claim Sanofi (the maker of Zantac) and other defendants knew about the dangers of NDMA in Zantac but failed to properly warn the public. People who developed cancer - especially bladder and stomach cancer - may be entitled to compensation." If you or a loved one have developed cancer and have taken Zantac for several years you may be entitled to substantial monetary compensation from the drug's manufacturer. Stomach cancer lawyers may offer a free consultation to see if you qualify to file a claim.

Individuals that suffer from heartburn, acid indigestion, or acid reflux should consult their doctor and consider replacing the drug with positive lifestyle changes that are as simple as eliminating certain acid-stimulating foods such as chocolate, coffee or other substances that contain caffeine, onions and garlic, and of course hot peppers or hot sauces. Tomatoes and tomato sauce can also cause heartburn and indigestion. Consuming alcohol should also be limited or discontinued as becoming intoxicated can lead to being less self-disciplined in making these dietary changes. Instead, one should eat more grapes, berries, bananas, and melons and avoid acidic citrus fruits like oranges, lemons and the like. Eating eggs, oatmeal, potatoes, and other root vegetables in larger amounts is also recommended as is reducing one's meat intake. It is also recommended to stop eating in the early evening after a sensible dinner, and not eat for at least two hours before lying down or going to bed to avoid the effects of gravity interfering with the digestive process.
