People who died trying to lose weight

Diets work for about one person out of a hundred, according to analytical company Datamonitor, based on their calculations. But this does not stop millions of people from trying to lose weight. Some manage to defeat their bodies once and for all. I mean, die.

The most famous destroyer of losing weight is anorexia nervosa, which affects about 0.9% of women and 0.3% of men in developed countries. Mortality rate is 5-10%. But there are more original ways to finally solve the problem of excess weight.

Magic pills1
On the evening of April 12 of this year, student Eloise Parry felt ill and went to the clinic. Doctors did a blood test and found that the girl was poisoned by 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP). There is no antidote for this substance. Parry seemed to burn from the inside, but the temperature could not be brought down, and in the end, the girl’s heart could not bear the load. The investigation revealed that Parry had acquired DNP capsules under the guise of diet pills.The lethal dose was contained in two capsules. Parry took 8.
Dinitrophenol is not the first time killing those who want to lose weight. The first wave took place in the 30s in France, where this substance was used to make explosives at military factories. During experiments on mice, it turned out that DNP accelerates metabolism incredibly. This allowed a person to lose 7 pounds in a week, on average. True, the side effects were serious: sweating, shortness of breath, arrhythmia, skin ulcers, cataracts, besides the substance has carcinogenic and teratogenic effects. The survivors said they felt as if they were boiling alive. DNP has been banned as a medicine, but it has remained on the market as a pesticide.

The drug returned to the dietary market in Europe in the 80s. Again death, again attempts to ban.

Today, 2,4-dinitrophenol sellers are using the Internet. Indian, Chinese, Turkish and Russian online stores carefreely trade this tool in the form of capsules, cream and even yellow powder, which is sometimes labeled as a seasoning of turmeric. The first to buy DNP became keen bodybuilders, but now it is also acquired by ordinary slimmers.

Interpol sent out warnings about the danger of DNP to 190 countries, but it can still be easily found on sale. In the instructions, the sellers will strictly warn about the danger of an overdose, but even if the buyer dies from the “permitted” dose, they will not answer - after all, this is not a medicine and it can be packaged in jars on her knee in her toilet.

Easy life2
Responsible approach to diet does not always save. For example, the British company LighterLife offers its customers a set of healthy food, requires them to visit a doctor every two months and weekly meetings with consultants, however, in the history of this British company, at least three deaths.

Samantha Klove was 34 years old when she decided to hit a loved one and lose weight before the wedding. Samantha weighed about 110 kilograms, but her health was excellent: she worked as a metallurgist. The therapist approved her decision, and for 11 weeks everything was fine. She sat on a diet of 530 calories a day, her menu from LighterLife consisted of soups, nutritious cocktails and diet bars. On June 28, 2009, she fell to the floor in front of her fiance. Doctors did not have time to help her, her heart refused.

In 2006, a similar story occurred with Matilda Callaghan from London, who dropped 63 kilograms in six months. Nutritionists explain these deaths by the fact that with rapid weight loss on strict restrictive diets a person's heart wears out. The company considers the incident to be an accident.

Pure water3
Another LighterLife victim, Jacqueline Henson, died not because of a lack of calories or because of heart problems. The mother of five children took the advice too seriously to drink plenty of pure water. Jacqueline easily dropped 6 kilos in the first weeks of the diet and decided that the council was working. So she stocked up with bottles of water, sat down with her husband to the TV and began to sip water from a glass. Like many people, she thought that the water was absolutely harmless, and how much you don’t drink it, as a last resort, you will have to go to the toilet once again.
At some point, Jacqueline became ill, her head ached, and nausea began. She climbed to the second floor, went into the bathroom and fell to the floor, where her eldest daughter found her. Doctors could not save the woman: an overdose of water led to swelling of the brain.

As it turned out, Henson drank 4 liters of water for 2 hours. The company went away from responsibility again, because their program was told to drink 4 liters per day, and not in one fell swoop, and this is a big difference!

Medical approach4
People who have tried all diets sometimes resort to bariatric surgery. There are various types of interventions, such as banding and shunting of the stomach. Their task is to reduce the gastrointestinal tract and thus reduce the amount of food consumed by a person.
These are popular operations that are described on the respective sites in the most iridescent colors. In fact, not everyone can lose weight after the operation, but many suffer from a lack of vitamins, minerals, etc., as well as, for example, from constant and explosive nausea at the slightest overeating. But something worse happens.

One of the known victims of bandaging is Tracy Korkmaz, a mother of three children, 16, 13 and 7 years old. The woman weighed more than 100 kg and tried various ways to lose weight. In 2008, she heard that her children were being teased for “fat mother”, and decided to have an operation. Surgeons did not notice that they injured a woman’s liver during surgery. After two more operations, during which the doctors tried to understand what they had done wrong, Tracy started blood poisoning and she died. As if in order of humiliation, the mother of the deceased was given a certificate in which obesity was called the cause of death.An investigation was conducted, and the police nevertheless found that the matter was a medical error.
64-year-old Bernadette Cooper-Clark, embarrassed by her failures in losing weight, deceived her relatives: she said that she would remove the tumor and went to bandage the stomach. After the operation, which was successful, the woman’s appetite did not diminish at all, but the ability to eat normally decreased. For a whole year, Bernadette struggled with herself and ate in small portions, but then she began to eat more and more. The body adjusted as best it could - its esophagus swelled to the size of a football. On December 9, 2012, a woman was found dead in her home: she suffocated from the food that had accumulated in the esophagus.

Solar diet6
It is hard to believe, but there are quite a few people trying to eat, literally nothing. Those of them who do not run at night secretly to the refrigerator, achieve not quite the desired results.
In the winter of 1999, Verity's friends Lynn saw her live for the last time in her favorite Indian restaurant. This energetic woman worked for 8 years in an ecological settlement as a manager and got a well-deserved vacation, which she decided to dedicate to traveling.She began with Loch Kam in Scotland. Verity carefully prepared for the hike, bought a reliable tent and camping equipment.

Among other things, in the bag of Verity lay the book of the Brethren’s guru Yasmuhin. The prophetess Yasmuhin from Australia used to be called Ellen Grieve and she worked as a financial expert, and today she teaches thousands of people how to live by eating only solar energy. Lessons from Grivs cost one and a half thousand pounds for a seminar.

Two weeks after the start of Verity's journey, a fisherman found her body on the lake shore. She lay in one windbreaker, curled up. According to the doctors, Verity died from cold and exhaustion. There is a record in her diary that she wants to be cleansed physically and spiritually after passing through a 21-day bretarian post. The investigation suggested that Verity went out of the tent at night to the toilet, got lost in the dark, lost consciousness from the weakness caused by two weeks without food and water, and froze.

Verity is not the first victim of a solar diet. In 1999, 53-year-old britarian Lani Morris died after spending 10 days without food or water.

The prophetess, in both cases, explained that the dead had followed instructions incorrectly and were not sufficiently motivated.Exactly the same thing, which is interesting, say the sellers of magic pills, consultants for super-diets and greedy doctors.
