    LYON, France – A global alert has been issued by INTERPOL for 2.4-dinitrophenol (DNP), an illicit and potentially lethal drug used as a dieting and body-building aid.
    The Orange Notice warning about DNP, which is also used as a raw material for explosives, was published after one woman died in the UK and a French man was left seriously ill after taking the substance.
    Under its anti-doping project, INTERPOL collaborated with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and received additional information from the global anti-doping organization after one of the WADA-accredited laboratories received a sample of the drug following a seizure in Australia.
    Issued at the request of the French Ministry of the Interior’s Central Office for the Protection of the Environment and Public Health (OCLAESP - Office central de lutte contre les atteintes à l’environnement et à la santé publique), the alert has been circulated to law enforcement in all 190 member countries, and a public version has also been made available to help raise awareness.
    Although usually sold in yellow powder or capsule form, DNP is also available as a cream. Besides the intrinsic dangers of DNP, the risks associated with its use are magnified by illegal manufacturing conditions.
    In addition to being produced in clandestine laboratories with no hygiene regulations, without specialist manufacturing knowledge the producers also expose consumers to an increased chance of overdose.
    In the 1930s DNP was used to boost metabolism and encourage weight loss, but it was taken out of circulation because of several deaths.
    “We are appreciative that INTERPOL has issued this global warning on DNP. This is a perfect example of how crucial it is that law enforcement and anti-doping organizations continue to forge closer ties so that dangerous, and potentially fatal, substances such as DNP do not reach the hands of athletes,” said WADA Director General, David Howman.
    As part of its close ties with WADA, and in cooperation with specialised national police and customs officers, INTERPOL’s anti-doping unit deals with both doping of high-level athletes, and the production and supply of banned performance enhancing drugs on the black market.
    Each year INTERPOL coordinates Operation Pangea, an international week of action tackling the online sale of counterfeit and illicit medicines and highlighting the dangers of buying medicines online.
    Bringing together customs, health regulators, national police and the private sector from countries around the world, key activities target the principal components used by illegal websites to conduct their trade – the Internet Service Provider (ISP), payment systems and the delivery service.

    It always amazes me how we react to different everyday activities and our actual risks associated with such activities.

    For example, DNP overdose resulting in death is extremely rare, and requires a person to exercise extremely poor judgment. Because of this "high risk" drug, we have an Interpol warning. My 16 year old child will get into a 5,000lb hulk of metal and motor down the road at 60mph after school today, all the while passing others in similar large, moving objects. At that time, just a slight lack of judgment (much less than a DNP overdose) can result in not only their death, but the death of others. In fact, tens of thousands of Americans die every year on our roads, and yet we don't outlaw what is clearly a much more dangerous activity that has a substantially smaller margin of error.

    Just odd how we think about such things.....

    I see I don't know how many intentional tylenol OD's in the ICU.... aspirin, take a bottle, thin your blood so much you stroke out... or, take one that is unbuffered and it accidentally sits in the esophagus or stomach lining and you get an ulcer.... but those are legal?

    One of my favorite lines ever: "A person is smart, but people are stupid."

    Gotta keep money in the hands of pharmaceutical companies. Their products are not much safer..but DNP is stronger.

    Gotta eliminate the competition.

    I really wish more people actually took the time to understand this point tommy. It's really quite simple I believe, yet this way of thinking is often challenged.

    I don't support its use, I don't oppose it. It, like everything else is out there to be used for a certain purpose.

    If one chooses to use it, I hope they make a well informed choice and use it with caution.

    but there are far more dangerous drugs out there, scripted and used everyday....and obviously far more dangerous activities...yet no one objects or raises question. They accept it, knowing the risks or not and just continue with their busy lives until something hits the news and they make their decision about it on only partial information.

    i suppose it's the hypocrisy that bothers me the most when I see something written or in the news about dnp. We see news about the dnp overdose, but not about the acetominophen......we see the "its a short cut for the fat and lazy who chose not to diet or train hard", when that very same argument could be used in regards to aas use. We see its toxic.....well so is each and every drug out there....some being more toxic than dnp.

    and it goes on and on.

    bottom line. Any drug, legal, illegal....scripted or not carries risk associated with its use. People need to be informed about what they chose to use, and exercise good judgement while using it.

    common sense.....if only it existed.

    (disclaimer beforehand: I am here by invitation, and am allowed to post info here, just in case people see this and worry about me--a known source--posting this info openly).

    Interpol is targeting EU because of an issue that arose with a sloppy UK seller who distributed adulterated stuff that caused toxic shock in some users, and two deaths. (Kids, that's why we DON'T buy the cheapest DNP we can find, because that's how end up swallowing Chinese DNP with contaminants in it!) Plus, he took Paypal, which made the legal case against him and his buyers very easy.

    Legit sources are very wary to ship to EU now. I know I get asked multiple times a week to do it, and I have to decline most of the requests because the risk-to-work ratio is too much against me. In fact, there are barely any legit sources to EU left, and most who claim to do it are scammers. Sadly, it's a lot of possible money every month I have to turn down just because EU is a bad region. Plus, when I do relent on an EU order, I've had so much trouble with EU buyers begging me to sell to them, agreeing to the costs and terms, and then backing out and vanishing.

    Domestic is still no problem, and I'm busy every night with it. But EU region is radioactive right now.
