Food Standards Scotland survey shows people in Scotland are unaware of the serious health consequences of DNP
Research conducted by CensusWide on behalf of Food Standards Scotland has found that only 4% of people in Scotland surveyed have heard about the potentially deadly substance DNP and know what it is, which is often illegally marketed as a ‘fat-burning’ food supplement to support weight loss or promote health and fitness.
Food Standards Scotland’s Scottish Food Crime & Incidents Unit has seized a quantity of powder believed to be the potentially deadly substance DNP.
Food Standards Scotland (FSS) issues an urgent warning against the highly toxic substance found in some diet pills known as DNP. It is not safe for human consumption, yet continues to be unlawfully marketed as a ‘fat burner’.
