The detox diet known as the Master Cleanse has received a lot of attention over the last few months, largely due to Beyoncé’s admission of using it to lose 20 pounds for Dreamgirls. But CNN recently reported that the rising interest in this 60-year-old weight-loss plan might not be smart.

It’s not the seemingly disgusting cocktail of lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and water that turns off medical authorities; nor is it the fact that the companion saltwater and laxative tea causes diarrhea. Many doctors are simply saying that, although there is not yet any evidence that the Master Cleanse specifically causes harm, any kind of extreme dieting and fasting is not healthy.

In fact, many experts refuse to believe the claims that the Master Cleanse can detoxify the body any better than our own organs can-or that we need digestive detoxification at all.

This hasn’t stopped thousands of devotees from continuing the plan and singing its praises. From losing weight to losing joint pain, “cleansers” are convinced this is the answer to their physical woes.
