New diet pills - easy weight loss or just a health risk
There are three new diet pills which are being boasted about in the news as safe and effective.
In a nutshell, no they are neither safe nor particularly effective but the media is sure are doing the hard sell on them. Will people remember the phen-fen fiasco which has caused a relatively rare deadly disorder, pulmonary hypertension to be something we hear about all too often? Will they remember that even a medication like Xenical (Alli') can cause malabsorption of fat soluble vitamins and fecal incontinence? (without much weight loss).
Or will they line up to get these new medications which are really more older ones, just recycled?
