People who take Zantac or similar drugs to combat heartburn may be unknowingly giving themselves cancer. Last week, the FDA announced that it had detected a cancer-causing contaminant called N-nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, in ranitidine heartburn medications.
But the FDA fell short of ordering a recall, and it wasn’t until a week later that distributors began to pull the drugs off the shelves. In response to the discovery, Sanofi spokeswoman Ashleigh Koss said,
Sanofi takes patient safety seriously, and we are committed to working with the F.D.A.”
She went on to say that Zantac “has been around for over a decade and meets all the specified safety requirements for use in the O.T.C. market.” –
At the time, Koss stated that Sanofi had no plans to recall the drug. But as evidence and consumer outrage grew over the following week, pharmaceutical company Novartis decided to stop the distribution of its generic Zantac drugs in all markets. At the time of publishing, Sanofi and the FDA had still failed to issue a recall.
NDMA in Drugs a Major Cancer Risk
This is not the first time that NDMA has been found in popular drugs. Last year, blood pressure medication valsartan, sold under the brand name Diovan, was also found to be contaminated. In that case, the FDA issued a voluntary recall of the drug, citing the risk of developing cancer.
Millions of people take ranitidine to relieve symptoms of heartburn and other gastrointestinal issues. But the potentially life-threatening drugs can still be found in pharmacies across the United States. In Canada, health officials have requested a stop to all distribution of the drug, making the only country in which Sanofi has ceased distribution.
NDMA is an industrial byproduct that can often be found in cured meats like bacon. The FDA says that it is “reasonably safe” to ingest up to one microgram a day. But safety testing has found levels significantly higher. In last year’s valsartan recall, the FDA found up to 17 micrograms of NDMA per dose. Valisure, a pharmacy that tests all drugs it distributes, found that Zantac had NDMA levels reaching 3,000 micrograms.
Valisure petitioned the FDA to recall all forms of ranitidine, though the agency has yet to take any such measures. They claim that NDMA may be “inherent” in the ranitidine molecule and have urged regulators to recall the drug until its safety can be guaranteed. But the FDA, as usual, seems apathetic about consumer safety.
FDA spokesman Jeremy Kahn said in a statement,
The FDA will take appropriate measures based on the results of the ongoing investigation.”
But they failed to recommend that people using the drug stop taking it. Instead, they simply suggested that alternative medicines are available.
This is the same “profits over patients” approach that we’ve seen repeatedly with our regulatory bodies. Safety testing – especially for generic drugs – is significantly lacking. Dinesh Thakur is a drug-safety advocate and whistleblower who exposed corruption and faulty quality control as an executive at Ranbaxy Laboratories. He says the FDA is not doing enough to protect consumers.
I think this is another good example of how our regulations need to change. Things like this will never get caught, unless somebody is actually actively looking for stuff.”
Meanwhile, a lack of oversight and testing standards has resulted in pharmacy shelves filled with drugs that can literally kill you. The FDA knows that Zantac has been contaminated with a carcinogen. Sanofi knows that something has gone terribly wrong with one of their flagship drugs. But the money is too good to recall them now.
Is Money Running Regulation?
Zantac was the first drug to total $1 billion in sales. In 2018, the drug generated nearly $130 million dollars for Sanofi. But a new class-action lawsuit filed earlier this week claims that the French drug makers have known the risks all along, hiding them from regulators and consumers in order to maintain profits.
The suit claims that each 150mg tablet of Zantac contains 26,000 times the FDA-approved daily limit of NDMA. Steve Berman, the lead attorney for the case, believes that consumers have been intentionally put in harm’s way.
Millions of people in the U.S. suffer from heartburn, and for years, Zantac has been sold to the masses as a safe and easy-to-find remedy for that common ailment. We’re certain that if those millions of consumers knew that the Zantac they take contains known carcinogens, they would be rightfully outraged.”
“Sanofi knew that Zantac contains a carcinogen, yet it chose to conceal these risks to the public to line its own pockets,” the suit claims.
Had defendants disclosed that Zantac results in unsafe levels of NDMA in the human body, no person, let alone a reasonable person, would have purchased and consumed Zantac.”
But all statements from the FDA and Sanofi say basically the same thing:
“We care about consumer safety. We’re looking into it.”
This isn’t the first time that drug manufacturers have hidden risks and lied to the public in order to line their own pockets.
Johnson & Johnson knew that there was asbestos in their talcum powder but did nothing. Juul Labs marketed their e-cigarettes to children, only to destroy the evidence when confronted. Opioid manufacturers bribed doctors and lied about safety, causing an epidemic that has claimed tens of thousands of American lives each year.
We could call the FDA lapdogs for Big Pharma. We could say that the whole system is corrupt, with patents, approvals, and leadership bought and paid for with blood money from the industry. But we don’t need to. All we have to do is show you the numbers.
- In the last 40 years, only one FDA commissioner has failed to secure a high-paying job in the pharmaceutical industry. The most recent departure, Scott Gottlieb, took a lucrative job on the board of Pfizer.
- A study published earlier this year found that 17% of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA used “suboptimal control arms,” leading to the approval of expensive cancer therapies that don’t show any real benefit to patients.
- Sonny Perdue, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, seems to be the only regulatory authority in the world who still claims that glyphosate is safe, despite hundreds of studies to the contrary and evidence presented in court shows that Bayer/Monsanto executives actively tried to hide the cancer/Roundup connection. Perhaps it’s a coincidence that Perdue is a former fertilizer salesman who has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the agricultural industry.
- A new expose has shown that many of the top-selling smartphones exceed federal radiation limits. FCC commissioner Ajit Pai worked in the telecommunications industry before his appointment. Former FCC heads have literally won awards for their efforts lobbying for the industry.
Doctors are literally incentivized to prescribe chemotherapy drugs to cancer patients, making more money with each dose of the toxic chemical. But maybe that doesn’t affect their judgement when it comes to patient care.
Maybe it’s all a coincidence. Maybe there’s no conflict of interest within the FDA. Maybe Sanofi is a great company that’s just trying to help patients. Maybe it’s the result of an innocent mistake that our shelves are filled with deadly drugs that cause cancer. Maybe the people who are calling foul are just crazy conspiracy theorists. Maybe a little bit of cancer isn’t a big deal so long as you get heartburn relief.
But I don’t buy it for a second…

I suffered a tearing of the flap that goes into the stomach over Twenty years ago. As a result I have suffered with acid reflux ever since. At first I was on a prescription ant-acid and after a few years I switched to Zantac because it was effective and cost less. Now over the past couple of years, with a diet change, I am off my daily regiment of ant-acids. Now finding out about this cancer causing drug is literally a blow to my gut. I am out raged by there evil and greedy ways and would like to know what I can do for myself and thousands of others.

I am in the same boat as you. I have been using Zantac for 20 to 25 years as well. In recent years working with a natural practitioner, I have been able to greatly limit my use of Zantac but still would take it as needed for some heartburn. You described it perfectly…….. it is a blow to the gut. I am a person who believes in natural health in general and does all I can to maintain a healthy diet and avoid chemical exposure. I am outraged. I want to know what I can do for my own well-being and for that of others. I want to exercise all of my rights in this matter as well.
Betty Pramberg says
I use very little prescriptions and because of my Hiatal Hernia , they prescribed Zantac or its generic form. I ran out of pills, and the doctor told me to buy it over the counter. Because of the price I stopped taking it. — I found if I ate my big meal early in the day, and nothing after 3:00, I had no heart burn to deal with and could sleep like a baby all night.
Thank God for common sense.
Michael Roe says
I took Zantac and Ranitidine for years…..last November i was diagnosed with Colon Cancer….this post explains a lot as i dont meet any of the criteria for colon cancer in that i dont smoke…i only drink a liitle alchohol i’m not over weight i eat healthy foods and i dont carry the cancer gene as i’ve been tested…..i am very annoyed about the FDA claiming this over the counter drug is safe….
Susan Styles says
I took Zantac from the age of 39 until I was around 60 years of age when the doctor changed me to ranitidine. I am now 70 years old and stopped taking them last year of my own accord. Should I be worried? Regards, Susan

Haven’t trusted the FDA for many years. They have failed the people of this country more times than you can count.
It’s all about the money & Big Pharma. : DISGUSTING!!!
I’m in Canada, I’ve just spoken with my pharmacist and they have not been made aware of any such issue at this time.
Silvia Logan says
When I had heartburn when I was in England four years ago, I took Zantac to relieve it, but I would not overdose on medicines like that because they could cause problems.
Un rimedio naturale c’è ma non posso svelarlo altrimenti sarei attaccato e anche minacciato
