Why do people go on a cleanse?

Why do people go on a cleanse or a detox? When is it legit, when is it hype? Do most do it because it sounds sexier, cooler, trendier, and healthier than going on a “diet”?

A plant based diet is also easier to digest, low in saturated fat, alkaline-forming, and much better for the environment.

If your body can’t excrete waste products you would eventually be poisoned by them, resulting in death.
