Wijitra Jantaphrom Dies After Consuming Herbal Drugs She Bought To Lighten Her Skin (Photo)

A woman has lost her life after she reportedly bought some herbal drugs on Facebook she had thought would help lighten her skin.

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.
