Hey guys! This weeks I’ve teamed up with The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) who regulate all medicines in the UK. Our aim in this video, is to warn people about the dangers of buying potentially life threatening diet pills from illegal online suppliers.

Almost 2 in 3 people suffered unpleasant side effects after taking dangerous online slimming pills, these included bleeding that wouldn’t stop, heart attacks, strokes and hallucinations!

The contents of these unlicensed diet pills are unknown, not tested for safety and have been found stored in dirty, rat infested warehouses and garden sheds.

Fake medical products and and dangerous diet pills are a big problem which the MHRA are working hard to end. The MHRA has seized nearly £3million worth of unlicensed slimming pills since April 2013, and closed down over 5,000 unauthorised online retailers in 2016.

Research carried out by MHRA in 2016 showed that although shoppers believe themselves to be “internet-savvy”, 79% of the public are unaware of the issue of fake medical products.

In fact more than half of all medicines bought online are fake! So please help spread the word – Like, Share & Tag Friends so more people can become aware of how to protect themselves, when buying medicines online.


The #FakeMeds campaign run by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) gives you quick and easy tools to avoid fake medical products when shopping online:

    Abraham, you look and sound like a very smart individual. Why do you find it necessary to add a musical accompaniment to your dialogue ? It makes it more difficult for people with hearing difficulties to hear you clearly. You’re message is an important one and it doesn’t require musical embellishment. Would you consider not adding music to your message, please?

    All you need is a gym and to reduce your food intake!! These things are just caffeine infused.. Cut your daily plate by 1/4 of its usual size, and you will see results!
