Zantac and its generic version found with chemical that could lead to cancer

There are increasing concerns about the popular heartburn drug Zantac and its generic version because of a chemical that could lead to cancer. Three large pharmacy chains in the U.S. recently pulled the drugs off shelves, following an FDA alert about an “impurity” in the medication. Dr. Jon LaPook recently spoke to two groups of researchers who suspect the problem could be serious for consumers.

    Pharmaceutical companies have been making you sick with their poison medicines. Do you trust the fda ? Not me two cipro nearly killed me. Fda said that’s ok, it’s still safe take some more and die now. Shut up and take your poison.

    just goes to show you can’t even trust things that say "FDA approved."

  18. Suzy Q on December 27, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Thank God I took myself off of 600mg per day of the generic form several years ago. I learned to treat myself with apple cider vinegar and better diet. Life is good. And, I can sleep lying down again!

  19. SR5_91 on December 27, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    This was recommended to me in my aftercare instructions from a hospital in 2020. As well as pepcid.

  30. Israel Sved on December 27, 2020 at 11:18 pm

    This is nothing new! Zantac and Protonix are both human carcinogens known for a long time!!!
