Diet Pills Boil Girls To Death

Sarah Houston

A 20-year-old girl who died after taking the deadly DNP slimming drug boiled to death internally when her body temperature tried to burn off fat, say medics in Warsaw, Poland.

The banned drug - sold over the internet as a pesticide - killed victim Martyna Szepaniak when her internal body temperature increased so rapidly she suffered multiple organ failure.

Two months ago (April) British medical student Sarah Houston, 23, - who had an eating disorder - died after trying the drug.

Poland's National Drugs Agency said: "When the body begins to burn fat rapidly it generates a lot of heat. If it can't get rid of that heat, the body starts to boil."
