If you want to clear out as much fluid as possible, probably salmonella would be more efficient, and you wouldn't have to torture a frog. Just sayin'.

This whole story was a way for a ABC newswoman to take a SA vacation and report on nothing at all.

So nice to see the TV news going along with the bullshiat that is the cleanse/detox fad.

"You throw up, you feel very sick, you feel like you're going to die," he said, laughing. "And finally it's going away, and after that, you have a kind of a feeling of being relieved."

Reminds me of an old joke used to help explain the definition of negative reinforcement in psychology 101:
"Why do you keep banging your head on the wall?"
"Because it feels so good when I stop."

Would be ok if he wasn't full of crap. It's easy to hand pick facts to make a point while ignoring a plethora of other facts that don't support your diatribe. There are many things used to cleanse/detox the body, and the real science behind them is called medicine. "I know your dying of heavy metal poisoning, but prussian blue is just a fad."

The detox/cleanse fad has nothing to do with actual toxins. You cannot cure heavy metal poisoning by applying a pad to your foot that turns brown.
