Should we remove mention of the Adipose pills from the Doctor Who entry? The only deaths caused by the pills were the results of Matron Cofelia or potentially one of her subordinates actively triggering Emergency Parthenogenesis to convert the entire body to Adipose.

Sure, it would draw the attenton all right, but it would also harm the very people it was supposed to save even further.
