Often sold as Diovan and other such trade names, Valsartan is a medication commonly prescribed to treat high blood pressure, diabetic kidney disease, and heart failure.
Valsartan and other drugs like it were contaminated with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NMDA), a chemical that has shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals and is believed to increase the risk of cancer in humans. NMDA is one of many chemicals created by expending rocket fuel.
