A woman whose daughter died after taking a rare fat-burning drug she bought over the internet has warned of the dangers of unlicensed slimming pills.

Mother's warning after woman dies from fatal dose of fat-burning drug DNP
Article in the Telegraph


"Anjennis Waldrond spoke out after an inquest heard how her daughter Selena was poisoned by a fatal dose of Dinitrophenol – known as DNP – which she bought from a Chinese website in a desperate bid to lose weight.

Selena, 26, of Croydon, south London, was found in a freezing bath trying to cool her body, on August 19 last year, after taking a large dose of the drug.

Croydon Coroner's Court heard that she was rushed to hospital "sweating, agitated and running a fever" but died later that day.

Speaking after the hearing her mother warned: "Selena's life has been cruelly snatched away, all because she was desperate to lose weight.

"DNP is lethal. Please do not take it. If you want to lose weight, do it the sensible way.

"Not a day goes by where I do not think about my beloved daughter.""

It is tragic that obese people are driven to such measures because the medical profession and other 'experts' have for many years been giving dangerously harmful, incorrect information about the causes of obesity and how to treat it...)o: -

Obesity is not caused by overeating/too many calories/carbs or by eating too much fat or taking too little exercise. - It is caused by fluid retention.

It affects the groups of people who are sensitive/vulnerable to salt/sodium. - Reducing salt intake reduces fluid retention and so reduces excess weight safely and rapidly. - Dieting, i.e. eating fewer calories than your body requires, increases fluid retention because it weakens the blood vessel walls and so dieting usually causes weight gain, not weight loss. Dieting makes you tired, cold and hungry; it weakens your bones and makes your skin thinner; it causes hair loss.

Dieting and/or taking so-called slimming drugs is harmful and does NOT reduce obesity.

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, angina, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
