A coroner has said he will write to the health minister about the "toxic and fatal" drug dinitrophenol, also known as DNP, after ruling that 21-year-old Eloise Parry died of an accidental overdose of the 'diet pill'.
Senior Coroner for Shropshire, John Ellery, said: "What is clear, is she took DNP in relation to her eating disorder, and her death was an accidental consequence."
This is a clearly a dangerous, toxic and fatal substance which should not be accessible and certainly not to persons seeking online self-prescribed medication.
He added: "If the minister considers it appropriate to see whether DNP should be a classified substance that would be an appropriate outcome from this inquest."
The mother of Eloise Parry, who died after taking DNP, appeals to others not to make the same 'bad choice' that cost her daughter's life.
