The US Sanitary Administration questioned the safety of a whole class of drugs against high blood pressure. They may contain chemicals that cause cancer. 

 
Several popular drugs used for the therapy of high blood pressure can be infected with carcinogenic chemicals. A warning was made by experts from the US Food and pharmacies  Administration. The country's chief sanitary department announced the discovery of possible carcinogenic ingredients in the preparation of valsartan in July after the manufacturer of this drug a month earlier attracted close attention to himself. Pharmaceutical company Camber Pharmaceuticals voluntarily withdrew the drug from the sale on August 9 after it found a possible carcinogen called N-nitrosodimethylamine. 
 
Although experts say the amount of this chemical in tablets is negligible, it has been found in the products of some other manufacturers that re-pack and sells valsartan generics under other names. Several thousand patients in the country, experts say, are at risk because of this drug, but experts believe that this incident will not increase the overall cancer incidence in the US higher than one case per year.
 
Note that in America about 100 million people have high blood pressure, because of which thousands of people die each year. They need to take medication to reduce pressure, but for some of them, these drugs, which allow years to keep pressure under control and live, slowly destroy cells, making them vulnerable to cancer.
