Consumer Affairs Report: Isagenix one of the "Worst Diets of 2006"

Worst Diets of 2006: "Most Outrageous Claim: Isacleanse The detox idea is seemingly the perfect scam -- it sets up a problem that doesn't exist, then provides a solution.

Ads for Isacleanse warn of toxins building up, clogging organs and deteriorating the body -- unless regularly detoxified. (This doesn't happen, as the human body is naturally self-cleaning.)

A 'healthier, leaner body' is promised in 30 days through ingesting a medicine chest full of Isagenix cures including IsaFlush for 'regularity,' diuretics, aloe pills, vitamins, ionic trace minerals, electrolyte drinks, Isalean Shakes and herbal teas.

For those who are frankly more interested in wealth-building, Isagenix turns a neat trick; on the same web page it alternately pushes a get-rich-quick scheme for deceiving others about the need to detoxify."
