New Year’s resolutions! 33% of us choose to lose weight and 1 in 3 people have used potentially dangerous slimming pills so in this week’s video I’ve teamed up with the MHRA who are responsible for regulating all medicines in the UK and our aim today is to warn people about the dangers of buying potentially life-threatening and ineffective dieting pills from online illegal suppliers according to the MHRA 79% of the public aren’t aware about the issue of fake medical products online so let’s change this by spreading this video like, share and tag friends who need this, now let’s begin! fact number 1! unlicensed diet pills can seem like a quick fix solution but the contents are unknown, unproven and untested and as a results of taking these every 2 in 3 people reported unpleasant side effects for example bleeding that wouldn’t stop and even heart problems fact number 2! one of the most common ingredients found in them is a substance called Sibutramine which had its license suspended across Europe because of its horrible side effects these include bleeding that wont stop, heart palpitations, heart attacks, strokes and hallucinations so it’s very serious facts number 3! remember don’t be tricked into thinking it’s not a tablet so it must be okay for example some of these products also come as teas and it is impossible to tell if these teas contain Sibutramine or any other ingredients it’s completely unregulated so it could contain anything slimming tablets are a big problem in fact since April 2013 the MHRA have seized nearly £4million worth of illegal slimming tablets and aids in order to protect yourself when buying medicines online I’d definitely recommend visiting the MHRA website that’s gov.uk/fakemeds link is in the description below on there you can see a list of all legal providers of medicines in the UK and there’s also ten top tips on how to prevent buying fake medicines online now that you know the facts about dangerous slimming pills please tell your friends and family about it and help spread this video by liking, sharing and tagging friends who’ll find this information useful lastly my next weekly video will go live in the new year so I’m taking two-week break have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year! and that’s it for this week’s video I hope your New Year’s resolution is a success and if it is to lose weight or become more healthy I’ve left some great links in the description below on how to do it safely hey guys thanks for watching if you haven’t already hit that follow or subscribe button now to get more videos
