- Buying medicines online

To cut it short
Diet pills are promoted as a harmless quick fix for achieving a slim body, but the tragic death of 21-year old Eloise showcased their dangerous side. Overdosing on the pills lead to her insides being burnt away by the drug.
With the pills promoted and advertised so heavily, Eloise’s mother, Fiona hoped that people would learn and stop taking them at all, especially that they DNP which is not suitable for human consumption.
