The Zantac Cancer Scare Indicates A Need For Prescription Testing
Online Drug Testing Pharmacies Like Valisure Could Be The Wave of The Future
Thursday, March 18, 2021 - The year 2020 will go down in history as one of the most notorious given the Covid-19 pandemic. Small businesses that were deemed to be non-essential were forced to close their doors temporarily, but many suffered such a financial blow that they may never reopen. Only megastores like Walmart were allowed to remain open, but shoppers had to conform to strict health regulations like having their temperature taken before entering the building, wearing one and sometimes two facemasks, washing their hands, and extreme social distancing from one another. Lost in all of the pandemic turmoil was media publicity for the FDA's recall and cancer scare surrounding Zantac, the world's best-selling brand of heartburn and acid reflux medicine. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with stomach, bladder, esophageal, or another type of cancer and have used Zantac regularly, you may qualify to file a claim. Zantac stomach cancer lawsuit attorneys handling acid reflux medicine cancer cases have compiled answers to common questions and offer a free consultation.
In 2018, over 15 million Americans were prescribed Zantac, and millions more bought the same drug over-the-counter. For decades, GalaxoSmithKline and Sanofi enjoyed a multi-billion dollar annual cash flow from sales of the drug they marketed as safe and pure. Nothing could have been further from the truth. Zantac tablets tested by online testing pharmacy Valisure contained dangerously elevated levels of NDMA, an undisputable deadly carcinogen. People that could not get their prescribed brand of antacid may have switched to other types like protein pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs whose main disadvantage is that they must be taken regularly and in advance of feeling heartburn and indigestion symptoms. Thousands of individuals that have taken Zantac regularly for many years have filed lawsuits against Galaxo and Sanofi that allege the company knew or had an implied obligation to know that Zantac could contain carcinogenic levels of NDMA. Filling your prescription online where independent expert scientists use state-of-the-art testing equipment and techniques for freshness and chemical impurities looks to be the wave of the future, if not the present. Pharmacies that dispense Zantac without making sure that it was safe from NDMA may be liable for their negligence, as are the drug's manufacturers. Not only has Valisure tested and found ranitidine to be carcinogenic but also certain blood pressure medicines and also metformin, a leading medicine given to control Type-2 diabetes. Valisure is sure to find problems with many more medicines that the public thought was safe but have degraded since their initial FDA approval
Valisure adds a level of confidence to filling a prescription at no cost to the consumer. The pharmacy sells the same drugs as Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, or the local pharmacy but tests them before sending them out. According to Valisure.com, " (WE) sell the same meds that all American pharmacies use, but first put the batches through rigorous chemical analysis so the bad batches are screened out. We summarize our analytics in an easy-to-understand certificate of analysis specific to that batch."
