Thai woman wanted white skin and big breasts - pays with her life on the eve of her 35th birthday

A Thai woman from Prae died after taking supplements sold online that were advertised as a way to get white skin and enhance breast size.

 

But she developed kidney disease and died in her own bathroom before help could reach her.

 

Relatives who had arranged her 35th birthday party celebration on Friday were concerned when she didn't show.

 

On Sunday they took her cake to present to her at her funeral, reported Kapook.

 

Wijitra Jantaphrom or Waew started taking the "herbal" supplements in capsules some months ago and initial results looked promising as her complexion improved.

 

She even recommended the capsules she found out about and ordered on Facebook to her friends.

 

But soon the mother of one, who was a furniture factory worker in the northern Thai province, suffered a swelling of the face. She went to hospital and passed out on the way and was diagnosed with kidney disease from taking the pills.

 

She was sent home and then things got worse. She passed out at home and this time there was no one around to help her and she died alone in her bathroom last week.

 

Kamchanok Kongkoi, 26, a relative, said she did not turn up to a planned birthday party on Friday.

 

Tragically they took her birthday cake to present to her corpse at the funeral at Wat Ton Khrai in Prae on Sunday.

 

Pharmacists told Kapook that this tragic case highlighted the problem of dangerous substances being sold online to people who wanted an answer to having lighter skin color and a better body shape.

Sad she died and on her  birthday. 

 

A common trait of the poor, they believe they can pill their way to health and beauty.

This obsession works well for those selling all the relevant products (dangerous or not), hospitals/doctors trying to treat the side-effects, and funeral parlors.

Tragic, so very tragic, a woman in her prime taken away because of this stupid thing Thai women have about getting whiter skin.

What i cannot understand is why so many women belieive all this rubbish posted on social media about  how wonderful  these pills are, how they can make you look the way you want, how they can make your skin whiter, make youi look younger, when 99% of these things are just conning people, not tried /tested or even safe.

There's a lot money to be made and a big industry mostly underground that results in lot of disfiguring and scared for like in the pursuit of the " perfect look",

Alas, while very few succeed, many pays with tier health and lives for it....

But I've never seen such a desire for white, white skin as here in LOS.

South Korea have an obsession too. North Korean ladies are very natural.
