Nitrates Suspected To Have Caused Zantac Contamination

Nitrates are in many common foods Americans eat every day and may contribute to developing Zantac Cancer

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 - Millions of individuals have been affected by the recall of Zantac, the world's best-selling antiacid and indigestion medicine. Heartburn sufferers that are now unable to find their preferred heartburn medicine should make lifestyle changes to alleviate their discomfort and avoid foods that contain nitrates, a common meat preservative. Nitrates are a preservative in processed meats like bacon, hot dogs, sausages, beef jerky, ham, and deli cold cuts, common foods known to cause heartburn and indigestion and leave one desperately searching for a Zantac antacid tablet. The National Institute of Health (NIH) has written extensively about NDMA and Nitrates and describes the relationship as "Nitrosamines are produced by chemical reactions of nitrates, nitrites and other proteins. N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is one of the most frequently occurring nitrosamines in our dietary foods." Zantac cancer attorneys offer a no obligation free consultation before filing a claim.

Nitrates in the stomach interact with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in Zantac ranitidine and allegedly cause cancer of the stomach, bladder, colon, and many other forms of the disease. has expanded the list of cancers that doctors think may be attributable to ingesting high amounts of nitrates. "Nitrates are a natural part of any normal diet. However, some research suggests that high levels can cause problems such as colorectal cancer. Other diseases such as leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, heart disease, and ovarian, stomach, esophageal, pancreatic and thyroid cancers, may be linked to excessive consumption of sodium nitrate," according to Healthline. Scientists at online testing pharmacy discovered elevated levels of NDMA during routine Zantac testing, levels many times greater than the 96 nanograms per tablet threshold established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and thought to be high enough to cause cancer. The FDA has been aware of the presence of NDMA in the air, water, and land at and near industrial manufacturing plants for decades and thought the amounts were safe. NDMA is known to cause cancer and is used to induce tumors in laboratory animals. People that have taken Zantac regularly for over a year and have developed cancer are suing Sanofi for failing to warn consumers of the dangers of NDMA accelerating to carcinogenic levels within Zantac.

Valisure Online Drug Testing Pharmacy filed a citizen's petition with the FDA immediately upon confirming the Zantac NDMA contamination. Sanofi, the maker of Zantac issued an immediate recall of Zantac followed one month later by a nationwide ranitidine recall by the FDA. So far no one has definitively produced a study that proves how, when, or where the NDMA contamination originated. Many believe that NDMA may increase carcinogenic levels when the compound is heated as was done by the Valisure testing process. Most think that NDMA contamination is likely to have occurred at the overseas manufacturing source in China where around 90% of the medicines taken in the United States are made. China has notoriously low pollution standards and drug manufacturing facilities are located close to industrial processing plants.
