The Dangers of Diet Pills

Diet pills have been advertised and marketed as an easy way to lose weight. However, these pills are not unregulated. Well-known dietary pills such as Ephedra, Hydroxycut, Fen-Phen and Meridia have already been either recalled or banned due to their dangerous side effects.

These dangerous side effects include:

  • Increased heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Liver damage
  • Kidney issues
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Sleeplessness
  • Agitation
  • Diarrhea

These dietary supplements are not reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prior to being sold to the public. The advertised benefits such as “lose 20 lbs. in a week” or “no exercising and dieting necessary” don’t exist. Even the labels on these products are filled with false claims.

According to a report released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, after an evaluation of 127 dietary supplements, 20% percent made inaccurate claims. Many dietary pills are comprised of caffeine and diuretics in order to make you feel like you’re losing weight.

Long-term weight loss requires healthy eating and routine exercise. Taking a pill as a quick and easy method to lose weight does not encourage healthy attitudes such as checking food labels and recording your food intake.
