Ranitidine medicines, a common brand of which is Zantac, are commonly taken to alleviate heartburn, stomach ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Zantac works to decrease the amount of acid in your stomach.
In September 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that Zantac and other ranitidine medicines contain a chemical compound called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen. NDMA is a component of rocket fuel, pesticides and several other industrial processes. According to the World Health Organization, there is conclusive evidence that NDMA is a potent carcinogen in experimental animals. Likewise, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies NDMA as a B2, or probable human carcinogen and a priority toxic pollutant.
Research links NDMA with numerous gastric and colorectal cancers. As a result, there have been many lawsuits against Zantac with links to gastric cancer, esophageal cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, colorectal cancer and other gastrointestinal tract cancers.

The FDA released a statement that the tests done on Zantac showed that the NDMA amounts in Zantac exceeded the acceptable level. Furthermore, the FDA found NDMA in ranitidine syrup, a medicine commonly given to children and infants.
A study from Stanford has shown that when Zantac is ingested, it causes an increased amount of NDMA in the human body. This is because Zantac is an unstable molecule and can degrade quickly. Consequently, this creates the carcinogen, NDMA, as a byproduct. Additionally, when Zantac is heated, it produces higher amounts of NDMA. Increased temperatures could easily occur during shipment of the drug. Because Zantac is taken orally, any organ in the digestive tract can potentially be affected by the drug.
The EPA states that short-term exposure to NDMA can cause the following symptoms:
- Abdominal cramps, and
Listed below are several cancers that have been linked to long-term Zantac exposure:
- Bladder cancer,
