Don’t Listen to Demi Moore!
Scientists are concerned that celebs are doling out health tips that may be unreliable.
Everything from maple syrup diets, to sprinkling charcoal on your food, to wearing silicone bracelets have been endorsed by celebrities. But do these so-called health and energy boosters really carry any weight?
The Sense About Science (SAS) group recently conducted a study focused on tips passed down from the stars, and it wasn’t pretty.
“Many of these claims promote theories, therapies and campaigns that make no scientific sense,” SAS warned in a statement.
Naomi Campbell, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and Beyonce have each shown support for a radical two-week diet regime consisting of maple syrup, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. “It’s good to clean out your body once in a while,” Campbell disclosed to Oprah Winfrey back in May.
Twitter fanatics Ashton and Demi, who have more followers than they know what to do with, Tweeted about their respective experiences:
@aplusk: “hrs (hours) into the master cleanse. I want a steak, a beer, and a blow-pop. Hmmm this is gonna be rough.”
@mrskutcher: “2nd day better than the 1st!”
Just how many people raced out to their local supermarket after getting the latest from those lovebirds? We are willing to bet at least a few dozen!
