teenage rugby player dies after taking toxic diet pills

So sad!

18-year-old rugby player Chris Mapletoft died recently after he took a diet pill that turned out to be poisonous.

The teenager out of Twickenham, London purchased 2,4-dinitrophenol (also known as DNP) online in hopes to shed a few pounds, but the chemical turned out to be too toxic for human consumption. The same chemical is known to be used in pesticides.

Chris's father David Mapletoft was with him when he said he began feeling nauseous and started showing fever-like symptoms. He called an ambulance once Chris began having difficulty breathing, but by the time it arrived he had already died.

David and his wife Lesley Mapletoft had no idea their son was taking the pill, and they are outraged that something so dangerous was so easily available online:

Two senior women at a small California eldercare home were killed after eating toxic mushroom soup.

The California Department of Social Services is investigating the case, but not releasing many details.

Apparently, a caretaker found several wild mushrooms in the facility's backyard and made them into a soup that she then fed to residents.

She even ate some herself.

The soup landed six people in the hospital, with two of them actually dying!

Fish can be so so so healthy!

It's really high protein and low fat, with the fat being the good kind of omega-3 fatty acids!

But not all fish are created equal, with some being more toxic than others!
