Diet Pill Risk to Health
on: November 13, 2009, 11:44 am
Dieters looking for a quick fix have been warned against
popping mineral pills- after researchers found they increased the risk
of heart disease.
The supplement selenium has been hailed by diet gurus as the miracle solution to
shifting stubborn fat. The tablets contain antioxidants which some believe can also
help to cut the chances of developing cancer.
But researchers at Warwick University found that too much selenium can cause
cholesterol levels to rocket.
Using the mineral increased the risk of heart disease by 8 per cent and researchers
have now called for a ban on the supplement.
Although there is no speedy steps to lose weight, The Hospital Group can provide
clear and concise advice for those wishing to undergo weight loss surgery.
The Hospital Group, the UK’s biggest provider of weightloss surgery, has seen a 73.9
per cent increase, with a staggering 12,848 people seeking surgery in 2008. In
2007, 7,385 people enquired into gastric procedures.
The surgery, including gastric band, gastric bypasses and gastric balloons can be used alongside liposculpture – also known as liposuction – and adominoplasty - the common tummy tuck– to sculpt and perfect your body and give you a healthier lifestyle.
Such is the interest in The Hospital Group’s weight loss procedures, bookings have
increased to levels above that of the NHS.
While the NHS reported that it had performed 2,724 weight-loss operations in 2008,
The Hospital Group performed a total of 3,015 gastric procedures in the same period.
The Hospital Group is committed to providing the very highest standards and all
procedures are performed by an expert medical team in state-of-the-art facilities
that are second to none. Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has
