Dieting Pills – The Dangers Of DNP – Dinitrophenol

DNP (Dinitrophenol) Illegal and dangerous

dnp bottle and pills



Dieting pills are becoming more popular these days, but not all diet pills are the same, some pills have been found to contain a chemical called (DNP) Dinitrophenol, DNP a banned substance which some unscrupulous underground chemists are putting in diet pills, the effects of DNP have been very tragic and fatal in some cases in the UK,  but this is not limited to the UK, because in 1933, an American researcher discovered that when taken by humans, DNP dramatically speeds up the metabolism leading to rapid weight loss. It was subsequently marketed as a weight loss drug. It was quickly withdrawn from the market, however, after it was found to be highly toxic, causing significant side effects and in some cases, deaths. In 1938 the American Food and Drug Agency issued a statement saying DNP was “extremely dangerous and not fit for human consumption”.

There have been many reports that DNP use is on the increase globally which is why I thought that it would be a good idea to bring it to the attention of as many people as possible in my own little way.

Here are some of the warning signs to look out for if you find have put yourself in the position of taking DNP either intentionally or by accident, consult your healthcare professional ASAP.

Warning signs include:

  • hot dry skin
  • excessive thirst
  • excessive sweating
  • abnormally fast heartbeat
  • rapid breathing


One of the risks of DNP is that it accelerates the metabolism to a dangerously fast level. Our metabolic system operates at the rate it does for a reason – it is safe. Speeding up the metabolism may help burn off fat, but it can also trigger a number of potentially dangerous side effects, such as:

  • fever
  • dehydration
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • restlessness
  • flushed skin
  • excessive sweating
  • dizziness
  • headaches
  • rapid breathing
  • rapid or irregular heartbeat

This drug is being sold as a miracle for weight but the drug is illegal and should be treated as if it were any other illegal substance like cocaine, amphetamines, or many of the opiates that are sold underground on the black market. There is one case that I would like to share with you that happened in the UK:

This is the tragic story of Eloise Parry


Eloise Parry, 21, from Shrewsbury, took tablets which police believe included dinitrophenol, known as DNP.



The warning was initially prompted by France after a Frenchman was left critically ill having taken weight loss pills containing the toxic pesticide.

Interpol said the products were being made in “clandestine laboratories”.

Miss Parry, who was a student at Glyndwr University, died at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital on 12 April and her mother, Fiona, has warned others to avoid the chemical.

Interpol has raised the alarm with forces in 190 countries after French authorities raised concerns about DNP last October and following an investigation by the World Anti-Doping Agency earlier this year.

In the Orange Notice, a public safety warning that Interpol issues, DNP was described as an “imminent threat” to consumers.

Online distributors have tried to mask its supply from customs and police officers by labelling it as the yellow spice turmeric because it looks similar, Interpol said.

A statement from the Interpol said: “Although usually sold in yellow powder or capsule form, DNP is also available as a cream.

“In addition to being produced in clandestine laboratories with no hygiene regulations, without specialist manufacturing knowledge the producers also expose consumers to an increased chance of overdose.”
