Previous Zantac Users Should Make Lifestyle Changes

So much has changed this year from last year including the diet that led to heartburn

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 - Heartburn and acid reflux sufferers have been hit with a devastating series of events this year that could have a profound negative impact on their health. Earlier in the year, online drug testing pharmacy Valisure discovered elevated levels of NDMA, a carcinogen, in tables of the popular heartburn medicine Zantac (ranitidine). The pharmacy alerted Sanofi, the maker of Zantac and the company immediately took the drug off of the market followed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalling all types of ranitidine. Zantac users were shocked to walk into stores like Walmart, CVS, and Rite Aid and no longer find packages of their preferred brand of antacid. Instead, former Zantac users were referred to drugs like Pepcid AC which had not tested positive for NDMA, however, this form of antacid blocks the development of stomach acid which is critical to digesting food and fighting viruses. When the COVID19 pandemic stuck in March, heartburn sufferers were again forced into hardship by the stress of losing their businesses or jobs compounding indigestion symptoms. If you or a loved one had been using Zantac regularly for years you may wish to contact a Zantac Cancer lawyer to see if you qualify to file a claim for reimbursement of medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. Plaintiffs allege that Zantac caused their stomach, bladder, intestinal, bowel, prostate, breast, and other types of cancer. Sanofi is being investigated by the US Department of Justice for allegedly lying to consumers for decades about the potential of ranitidine to increase under conditions of high heat and potentially cause cancer.

A silver lining in an otherwise dreary year of development could be that the Coronavirus pandemic has forced people indoors and towards a more healthy, natural lifestyle. Millions of Americans that had to put up with the daily stresses of fighting traffic or commuting for hours each day can now work from the comfort and convenience of their home. Many are thinking in terms of reducing their meat consumption and growing organic home vegetable gardens. The pandemic has forced families to spend more time together and in general people's priorities may have been changed away from accumulating possessions and towards enjoying a higher quality of life. A higher quality of life includes eating a more plant-based diet, reducing the amount of alcohol and caffeine drinks consumed, and getting daily exercise.

Failing to adopt a healthy lifestyle and diet changes could have catastrophic consequences for previous Zantac users. Heartburn sufferers are no longer able to simply reach for a pill to alleviate indigestion and living with heartburn is no solution. Heartburn and acid reflux could lead to developing cancer and needs to be taken seriously. Heartburn and acid reflux is a condition when the esophageal sphincter no longer closes tightly enough to prevent stomach acids from rising up into the esophagus and the burning sensation is an irritation that could lead to developing esophageal cancer. The first step in a post-Zantac world to fighting chronic heartburn is to stop overeating, eat less frequently, and get more exercise.
