Ten O'Clock News: Eloise Parry, Diet Pills and DNP

July 11, 2021 Off By editorialteam

Eloise Parry died after taking so-called ‘diet pills’ she bought on the internet. They contained the chemical DNP, which is toxic to humans. Doctors could do nothing to save her when she checked herself in, as she had taken a lethal dose, and there is no cure. This was a report for the BBC Ten O’Clock News on the 23rd July 2015.
