Imagine this: treatments that will help you lose weight, boost your intelligence, increase your fitness and improve your mood!

Experts think so and have issued a warning against these so-called smart drugs citing that they can cause serious adverse side effects such as mercury poisoning, allergic reactions, brain damage and liver damage.

Weight loss supplements containing unapproved drugs have caused liver damage and deaths, skin lightening creams have caused mercury poisoning, and sexual enhancement products contaminated with a diabetes drug have caused brain damage and deaths.
Doctors need to be aware of the possibility that people might be taking these substances without the knowing they are dangerous drugs, according to the Telegraph.
