    Default Carcinogens Found In Heart Drug

    ANH USA
    June 27 2019

    More evidence that the drug approval process is completely broken.
    A pharmacy recently alerted the FDA to the presence of a cancer-causing chemical in the popular blood-pressure drug valsartan, putting millions of patients at risk.
    Incredibly, this isn’t even the first time dangerous chemicals have been found in this class of drugs. Generic forms of Valsartan have been recalled since 2018 when three other carcinogenic compounds were found in various versions of the drug.

    The generic forms were recalled because they contained the carcinogen, NDMA. Now, the remaining forms contain another carcinogen, DMF. If the FDA was doing its job, it would require all pharmaceutical companies to retest the scores of blood pressure and heart failure meds to ensure they don't include these carcinogens, including all original and generic forms.

    It won't cost the government a dime since they surrender all testing to BigPharma anyway. Just require it and it will be done.
