Could another over-the-counter medication cause cancer?

People in Ohio and across the country have become used to hearing about prescription drugs subject to recalls for one reason or another. However, since the recall of the widely popular over-the-counter medication Zantac kicked off several recalls of ranitidine heartburn medications, concern has been raised about other drugs people use every day and can buy at nearly any store. These fears may be well-founded if a state on the west coast has anything to say about it.

Glysophate lawsuits pile up despite Bayer saying it's safe

It could easily be said that the weed killer called Roundup put Monsanto on the map. When Bayer purchased that company, the larger company inherited some legal matters, including thousands of glysophate lawsuits filed by individuals across the country, including some here in Ohio, who believe that chemical caused their cancer. Even as Bayer negotiates a settlement, the company continues to assert that glysophate is safe.

Storing Zantac in a warm room could increase the health risks

Since last fall, several companies have recalled Zantac and its generic alternative, ranitidine, from stores. This occurred in response to the discovery of unacceptable levels of a chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in some samples of the product.

The new year brings in more heartburn drug recalls

Toward the end of 2019, consumers in Ohio and elsewhere learned that a popular medication some have taken for decades contained a human carcinogen that could give them a variety of cancers. Since Sept. 2019, numerous pharmaceutical companies have voluntarily issued recalls for products containing ranitidine, a popular heartburn reliever. Some people may have hoped that the new year would bring better news, but instead, the Food and Drug Administration only continues to widen heartburn drug recalls.

Cause of head-on collision eludes police

When police arrive at the scene of an accident, the mechanics of what happened may not take much investigation to determine. For instance, in a head-on collision, it would normally be obvious that one vehicle was headed in the wrong direction and crashed into another vehicle. However, determining how the wrong-way vehicle ended up in the oncoming lane of travel may take further investigation.

Single-car accidents can devastate multiple families

It does not matter whether it happens here in Ohio or elsewhere, it only takes the mistake of one driver to change the lives of individuals and families forever. Every crash that leads to serious or deadly injuries is a tragedy. Even single-car accidents have the potential of devastating more than one family and the lives of multiple people.

Zantac recall update: Stop taking this medication immediately

It has been widely publicized across the country fact that N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) could cause cancer in people who take ranitidine products. Up to this point, the Zantac recall has not urged those who take it to stop doing so. That has changed.

Did Zantac recall only bolster woman's breast cancer claim?

People are already beginning to come forward to claim that ranitidine caused their cancer. After taking the medications for decades, they are now receiving diagnoses of a variety of cancers. It is possible that the Zantac recall gave many individuals, including some here in Ohio, the connection they were missing regarding why they ended up with cancer.
