A surreal trend has thousands of British women taking "booty enhancing pills" originally developed for chicken fattening. Online vendors have offered herbal pills based upon poultry tablets are filled with hormones. The pills were originally created for farmers to bulk up chickens but are known to enhance a woman's thighs, hips and derriere. The pills are considered dangerous for human consumption and are also known to cause breast cancer or liver problems.
Online vendors branded the "herbal" pills with the name Star Curves, Big Beautiful Butt Formula, and Brand New Booty Pills. Manufacturers of the herbal pills insist that exotic plant compounds mimic the poultry pills yet many medical experts warn of the dangers of taking the pills.
