More regulation needed for diet pills?

The recent death of 45-year-old Chris Wilcock in the UK has turned the diet pill market upside down – again.

Plans are now on the table to re-examine how diet pills are currently regulated with a major sreview expected. The ex pub landlord suffered cardiac arrest, collapsing at home. He had taken a number of diet pills. It was later discovered that he had the caffeine equivalent to 300 cups of coffee in his body.

Robert Verkerk PhD of ANH International commented:

“Based on the reports, it sounds like the T5 tablets Mr Wilcock was taking were likely to have been adulterated. The typical caffeine level is a daily dose of most T5 products would represent around 2 cups, not 30 cups, of caffeine. There is actually ample legislation to ensure food supplements are safe, including EU general food, food labelling, hygiene and claims legislation. The problems that arise with safety tend to be with online rather than retail sales. The difficulty is more to do with enforcement than it is with the paucity of any legislation. It is notoriously difficult to monitor and regulate online sales, and, because of that, the main take home has to be that consumers only purchase products from reputable suppliers.”

“We are in a water crisis beyond anything you can imagine. Pollution and toxins are everywhere, stemming from the hazardous wastes of industry and agriculture. We’ve got more than 40,000 chemicals on the market today with only a few hundred regulated. We’ve had industrial byproducts discarded into the ground and into our water supply for years. This crisis affects everyone – rich or poor, black or white, Republican or Democrat. Communities everywhere think they are safe when they are not.

I am always in wonder at how some people complain about having no money.. and yet seem to have a blind spot on what they spend money on. Luckily for Mr Shanshan (whom I bet you’ve never heard of!) there are enough blind spotters in the world for him to become the 6th richest man in the world.
