    Default Slimming products increase risk of heart attacks and strokes

    Oz authorities have warned consumers about imported slimming products, citing the increased risk of heart attacks and strokes after consumption.

    Slimming products like tea, coffee and chocolate, many of which are imported from China apparently contain the banned substance sibutramine.

    “Everyone is full of good intentions as the year begins but generally if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,”” the Courier Mail quoted Primary Industries Minister Steve Whan, as saying.

    In clinical trials this prescription medicine has been found to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes among overweight users and has been banned from sale.

    The NSW Food Authority has seized 15,000 units of “slimming”” foods and are investigating to ensure they comply with the safety standards.

    Not only slimming pills is to blame among heart attacks. Also, poor oral health causes heart ailments, especially when a person got a bad gingivitis. So it is advisable to take care of your teeth, brush and floss it. It is good also to have a dental check up with your dentist regularly. :D
