The dangers of weight loss pills


I was shocked today to learn some of the side effects of weight-loss pills being considered by the FDA. One of them, called Qnexa, can cause birth defects and heart problems. Can it get any worse?! The drug was already rejected by the FDA before, but now they want to review it again.

It is great that pharmaceutical companies are trying to find a magic bullet for the weight epidemic, but when we hear stories such as this one, it is not hard to realize how far science is from understanding how the human body functions, especially when it comes to weight, which is controlled by so many factors.


Another disturbing fact about Qnexa is that it is a cocktail of two separate drugs: the stimulant phentermine and Topamax, an epilepsy and migraine drug. It seems to me that the makers of Topamax at some point realized that it can cause weigh loss as a side effect and decided to spin off Qnexa for profit. I don't know about you, but I personally would not want to be a guinea pig for an epilepsy and migraine drug with the side effects of weight loss, birth defects and heart problems. Think about it: if the scientists really understood the human body and how it works, why are there so many side effects?

Science is exact and every other field that applies it (be it chemistry, computer software/hardware, engineering) is held to a higher standard, one that is based on facts and thorough understanding of how everything works. Until the medical/pharmaceutical community can provide scientific proof that they understand the human body, we will just be guinea pigs and take on the risk of doing more harm than good to our bodies.

Fortunately, there is a natural way to lose weight by controlling the calories we consume and the calories we burn. You can read more about it here
