Individuals who suffer from conditions like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) have the option of taking antacids, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), or H2 blockers.

With afflicted individuals filing Zantac cancer lawsuits, it’s important to understand the dangers associated with Zantac and other heartburn medications.
