Juice cleansing continues to be big business in America—cold-pressed juices alone raked in $100 million in 2015. Many health and science experts say there's no factual evidence that you can detox the body with juice cleanses. But are the millions of people who claim they've improved their health with cleansing wrong? Read further perspectives below and vote!

I mean, look at these juices. Don't you feel healthier just seeing them? Maybe they aren't's a miracle cure for all ills, but isn't drinking liquefied fruits and vegetables far better for you than the typical American's processed, fast food diet?

But the whole idea that juicing allows your body to release toxins is not supported by science:

"People are interested in this so-called detoxification, but when I ask them what they are trying to get rid of, they aren’t really sure,” said Dr. James H. Grendell, the chief of the division of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y. “I’ve yet to find someone who has specified a toxin they were hoping to be spared....It’s hard to understand because there is no good scientific evidence that a juice cleanse, or any other food for that matter, is particularly relevant to removing toxins,” he said.

Many people see cleanses as an antidote to weeks of unhealthy eating, or a way to break unhealthy diet patterns. And again, isn't anything that gets Americans to not eat garbage a good thing?

But a lot of the marketing and popularity of cleanses is connected to losing weight, and again, scientific evidence shows that extreme calorie reduction does not work for consistent, maintainable weight loss. The claims made about how cleanses affect your body are frequently not based in science or data.

Plenty of people argue they are simply dumb, marketed as a quick fix to people who don't want to invest the time and energy in a healthy lifestyle.
