Zantac Lawsuits: Ranitidine Linked To Cancer

Zantac has been linked to cancer. These lawsuits also apply to Ranitidine, which is Zantac in generic form. See our video explanation below on the ongoing Zantac lawsuits as well as how you can join.

How does Zantac relate to cancer?

The carcinogen NDMA has been linked to cancer. It’s in Zantac and other Ranitidine products at 3000-26000 times the levels considered safe by the FDA.

What exactly is NDMA N-nitrosodimethylamine?
