How Does Zantac & Ranitidine Cause Cancer?
The carcinogen NDMA causes cancer like all cancers do. They disrupt cell regulation and metabolic processes within the cell. All human body cells have the ability to divide but this is regulated at the cellular level. A carcinogen negates the cells ability to control cellular division. This leads to uncontrolled cell division, called mitosis, and tumors can result if the bodies immune system and lymph systems cannot remove these cancerous cells.
Ranitidine is the active ingredient in Zantac. Due to the recent cancer causing allegations regarding Zantac many stores have removed it from it’s shelves. These stores include CVS pharmacy, Walgreen’s and WalMart among others.
The manufacturers, Sonofi and Apotex Corp, have also recalled Zantac. You can contact them directly for a refund.
