What is Zantac?

Zantac first hit U.S. markets in 1983 as a prescription medication to treat a variety of gastrointestinal issues, such as heartburn or acid reflux. It is an over-the-counter drug, and is also sold under the generic name, ranitidine. Ranitidine drugs are also available in a prescription-strength form for the treatment of more serious stomach issues, like ulcers.

In the spring of 2018, Zantac underwent testing, along with several other similar medications, for a known “probable carcinogenic” chemical called NDMA. In other words, exposure to certain levels of NDMA may lead to the development of certain cancers. The study ultimately found high levels of NDMA in Zantac, leading the FDA to issue a warning.

Why is Zantac Dangerous?

According to the Zantac-NDMA study, conducted at Valisure, a research lab in Connecticut, the use of Zantac can be problematic on many levels. The lab discovered that, not only does Zantac contain alarming amounts of NDMA independently, but it may also become even more unstable when consumed. In fact, the study revealed that the human body breaks down Zantac in such a way that it exposes the consumer to NDMA levels more than 400 times the level deemed acceptable by the FDA. The FDA later conducted its own tests andconfirmed that Zantac and its generic forms contain hazardous concentrations of NDMA.
