Sales of unproven and dangerous products have always been a concern, but the Internet, radio stations and TV stations now provide merchants with easy and inexpensive way to reach millions of customers around the world. Fraudulent and illegal sales of medical products have hit a bonanza.
Although some of the weight loss pills or food supplements require physical activity and dietary protocols, the marketers usually omit such additions to amplify their false magic claims. The Food and Drugs Authority does not closely check the safety of over-the-counter weight-loss pills before they hit the market. Usually a manufacturer only needs to show limited proof of safety and effectiveness. Once a product goes on sale, then it is monitored for safety and issue bans or recalls of products that turn out to be dangerous or a fraud.
Weight loss pills come at an economic cost too and care should be taken not to waste money on ineffective medications.
Nonetheless, some individuals may require some weight loss pills or nutrition supplements together with diet to achieve their health goals.
Such individuals should work closely with their physicians or be cautious instead of believing every product on the market.
When you hear news on nutrition, weight loss pills etc, consider its source. Ask yourself these two questions: Is the person providing the information qualified to speak on nutrition? Is the information based on valid scientific research? If not, find a better source. After all, your health depends on it.
