|See All the Problems...|
For our first regular episode of 2015, we cover diarrhea diets, otherwise known as “detox diets” like the “Master Cleanse” and “Fruit Flush,” which is aptly named. Dick has a hangover, so business as usual. Also, I get more petty than normal by responding very thoroughly to a long-ass criticism of my debating style.
Here are some of the sources mentioned:
Bonus Episode 3 – The great wine test
NBC News – Experts say there’s little evidence that the Master Cleanse does anything non-diarrhea related.
NPR – The body has its own detox system called your “liver” and “kidneys”
Alternet – Some detox diets produce soap in your stomach
Maddox – Side effects may include “gas with oily discharge”
And finally, this uncomfortably sexy fan art by @sword_and_ink.
Along with Maddox’s response:
“WHY AM I THE CHICK? THIS IS BULLSHIT!”
