According to an Italian team, led by Luisella Vigna of the University of Milan, prior research has shown that vitamin D deficiency is associated with a higher risk of obesity and obesity-related complications.
However, studies on the use of vitamin Dsupplements to curb obesity have so far been inconclusive, the team said."

"The international police agency Interpol has issued a global alert about an illegal and potentially lethal drug used for dieting and bodybuilding.
The warning concerns "2,4-dinitrophenol" (DNP), a combination of compounds that increases body temperature and metabolic rate. Last month a British woman who'd taken pills containing DNP died. The drug also left a French man seriously ill.
DNP, which is also used as a raw material for explosives, is linked to other deaths too. It's highly toxic and causes side effects like hot, dry skin, excessive thirst, and an unusually fast heartbeat.
The drug is being sold on the Internet. It's usually sold in yellow powder or capsule form, but it's also available as a cream."
