Zantac users diagnosed with cancer may be entitled to compensation

Zantac was pulled from store shelves two years ago because its use was linked to various forms of cancer due to the medication containing a product used in the manufacturing of jet fuel.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has labeled N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) as a probable carcinogen. Furthermore, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found the heartburn medication’s use of NDMA could lead to cancer in humans, if taken in a high doses.
