Popular Blood Pressure Tablets Recalled Worldwide

If you take Blood Pressure tablets, you need to read up and read up good. It’s time to take your health into your own hands and do your own investigations. This is a wake up call.

We have been encouraging our Community for a very long time to take control of their own health. Your body is intelligently designed and wellness is its natural state.

It is the meat, dairy, processed food, alcohol, cigarettes and fluoride that is literally hammering your system. When you add in the fact that the vast majority of people are on medications galore, it’s not surprising the world is sicker than ever.

Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Tablets seem to be the entry point to medications. Many people are on these harmful pharmaceutical drugs and have not researched if they are even necessary.

It’s important to understand that many in the medical profession are financially rewarded to promote pharmaceutical drugs.

It can add a huge amount of financial income to the bottom line of the average Doctors practice. We are not suggesting this is mostly the case but you have the right to ask your Doctor if he receives any financial incentive or reward if you take up the tablets.

The drug in question is Valsartan. It is made in a factory in China. Interestingly it was first recalled in 22 countries. The warning has now been extended worldwide and also includes UK and the USA.

A cancer-causing chemical used in rocket fuel known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) has been identified and has contaminated the drug’s production at Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceutical.

What does this mean? Production of Valsartan has apparently ceased and those in the know have suggested that the contamination dates back to 2012. At this time the Company changed their manufacturing process.

Valsaratan has been in circulation and prescribed for 15 years. The drug is prescribed to patients to treat high blood pressure and heart failure.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA), which first issued the warning over Valsartan, said it was working to find out how long, and at what levels patients might have been exposed to NDMA.

The agency said: “It is still too early to provide information on the longer term risk NDMA may have posed for patients.”

“EMA has made this aspect of the review a priority and will update the public as soon as new information becomes available,” reported the Daily Mail.

The EMA has come out and said that all medicines containing Valsartan from Zhejiang Huahai should be recalled and should no longer available in pharmacies.

A press release has been issued saying that patients that are using this medication should not stop taking their medication. This is unless you have been specifically told so by your Doctor or Pharmacist.
