Belviq and Breast Cancer – Is There a Link ? Find Out Here
Belviq, a top-selling weight loss drug has recently been in the news when the FDA issued a voluntary recall after multiple studies linked it to the development of various cancers such as lung, pancreatic and breast cancers.

For years, the makers of Belviq downplayed the cancer risk of this weight-loss drug, putting the lives of patients at risk in an unreasonable manner, as well as failing to warn them of the same which would have helped them make an informed decision on whether or not they would continue with said drug.

Belviq Cancer Risk – The FDA Investigates
The link between Belviq use and cancer was discovered when a woman from Louisiana filed a lawsuit naming the drug’s manufacturers as defendants when she developed breast cancer after taking Belviq for about a year between late 2018 and 2019. What’s interesting is the fact that Belviq was actually rejected by the FDA back in 2010 when it was shown that in animal studies, the weight loss drug caused rats to develop breast cancer and brain tumors. It was later approved two years later after the FDA came up with a caveat that the drug be put through rigorous double-blind placebo-controlled trials.
How Belviq Works
Belviq works by targeting the hunger receptors in the brain which control satiety. By doing this, people feel full after eating only a small amount of food, which in turn causes them to lose weight by eating less and feeling full for longer.
