Ministry recalls some medicines containing valsartan over cancer fears
The recall was triggered after traces of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) were found in the valsartan used in the affected products. Health Canada describes NDMA as "a potential human carcinogen, which means that it could cause cancer with long-term exposure".

The Post reported last month the Nets had been shopping Lin, and that they had been looking to take Nuggets big man Kenneth Faried in a salary dump to get a pick.

Faried and Arthur both saw minimal time in Denver last season with Faried playing just 14.4 minutes per game in 32 contests and Arthur getting 7.4 minutes per night in 19 games. The Coney Island native averaged 6.3 points and 1.3 assists in 16 games last season, spending much of the year in the G League.
