Zantac is one of the leading over-the-counter heartburn and antacid products on the market in the United States. Over 128 million over-the-counter packages of Zantac are sold annually in the U.S. In addition, Zantac is also one of the most widely used prescription heartburn and antacid medications taken in the United States as well. If you are like millions of people, you relied on Zantac to provide you much needed relief from the symptoms of such things as heartburn, acid reflux, and so forth.
You undoubtedly are shocked to learn this medication you relied on and trusted appear to contain a dangerous cancer-causing substance in an amount 3,000 higher than permitted by the FDA in every dose.

If you take Zantac, you need to stop using the medication immediately. If you take Zantac, you need to contact your prescribing doctor or primary care physician immediately.

Zantac Cancer Specifics: Why Your Health May be at Risk
Zantac is a brand name for a drug medically known as ranitidine. Zantac itself has been manufactured by two big pharma companies, Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim. In addition, ranitidine is now being used in a considerable number of generic heartburn and antacid medications used by people in the United States. At this time, the generic versions of this drug are also believed to contain 3,000-times the permissible level of NDMA, the carcinogenic or cancer-causing substance.
The mortality rate from the types of cancers NDMA in Zantac can cause is high. The treatment involved in battling these types of cancers is significant and includes prolonged chemotherapy, extensive radiation, or surgery. Indeed, in many cases, an individual diagnosed with one or another of these types of cancer must endure all of these treatments.
What Did They Know – And When Did They Know It
Mammoth pharmaceutical companies made billions of dollars from Zantac. Big pharma made big money from Zantac, apparently knowing the drug contains a tremendously high level of a cancer-causing substance. The shocking, unthinkable reality is this:
Big pharma did a cost benefit analysis – you versus big money. And big money won.
Massive pharmaceutical companies charge you exorbitant amounts for medications they say will help you. While you may have received some relief from heartburn or acid reflux, you may have been exposed to something far more serious: The risk of developing a type of cancer with a high mortality rate.
