A plague of cancer causing products
Over the past few years there have been countless news stories about common household items and products discovered to cause cancer. In many of these cases manufacturers were negligent for failing to adequately test their products and for failing to warn consumers.
Recently the popular drug ranitidine (sold under the brand name “Zantac”) was removed from the market after years of successful sales and after generating billions of dollars in revenue for generic and brand name drug manufacturers. Zantac was removed from the market after evidence was discovered linking it to an increased risk of several forms of cancer. Evidently, consumers of Zantac and ranitidine are at higher risk of developing cancer from exposure to NDMA. NDMA is a substance composed of nitrite and dimethylamine. NDMA is a known carcinogen and is dangerous for a person to ingest, especially in large quantities.
Similarly, popular heart medications Valsartan, Losartan & Irbesartan were discovered to contain unacceptably high concentrations of nitrosamine impurities such as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), and N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA). These products evidently cause increased risk of several forms of cancer.
Not long ago it was discovered that the common household product Johnson’s Baby Powder (talcum powder) was exposing women to a high risk of developing ovarian cancer. Thousands of lawsuits have been brought nationally for these women.
Finally, the common herbicide Roundup was recently discovered to increase the risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in agricultural laborers and gardeners. The link to cancer has been attributed to a high concentration of glyphosate found in Roundup. Monsanto now faces thousands of lawsuits over Roundup. Three cases have gone to trial, with juries returning verdicts of $289 million, $80 million, and $2 billion against Monsanto.
Human Lab Rats?
When trying to create cancerous tumors in lab rats, Scientists use NDMA to do so. They are 100% successful in using this carcinogen to create cancer. It has no business in a human drug and the same goes for NDEA, talc and glyphosate.
By exposing consumers to such harmful chemicals these manufacturers have shown that they see us as nothing more than laboratory rats.
Legal Actions Against Big Drug Companies
Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against these companies for their negligence in introducing their products to consumers without adequate testing. The lawsuits allege that these manufacturers knew or should have known that their products could result in exposure to harmful cancer and even death.
Plaintiffs who developed cancer now claim their odds of developing their cancer were dramatically increased by using one of these products.
