The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Department of Maharashtra had registered a case against the glamorous proprietor of Health Total, a chain of "health clinics" in Mumbai and Delhi, under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act for selling and storing unlabelled medicines without a licence in February, 2004. The FDA's sting operation was prompted by the emergency hospitalisation of former Brihanmumbai municipal commissioner K. Nalinakshan after he developed internal bleeding during a weight-loss programme under Mukherjee. Cardiologist P.L. Tiwari, who treated Nalinakshan, admits to a drastic fall in his haemoglobin count and an increase in arsenic levels in blood. "Many herbal and ayurvedic slimming pills are found to have traces of metal and high arsenic levels or deadly appetite suppressants that could damage the liver," he said.
