There are some good and approved medications for weight control; however ,  the  individual  loses  the  benefits  associated  with  moderate  to intense  exercise  which  have  shown  to  improve  longevity ,  enable  good sleep,  improve  concentration  and  breathing  etc.

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.
