Is Jillian Michaels trying to kill us?
Possibly, according to a new lawsuit filed against the celebrity trainer.
A woman referred to as "R.D." in documents has filed a class action lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court that claims Jillian's Triple Process Total Body Detox & Cleanse diet supplement contains a "potentially lethal combination of toxic ingredients. Also, it "might kill you."
Hmmm... can we feed it to Mel Gibson?
Among the ingredients the lawsuit singles out, as first reported by TMZ, are:
- Irish Moss Powder because it "causes gastrointestinal ulcers" and is "so toxic that it is the gel commonly applied to aircraft wings to dissolve ice."
- Bearberry, which is "known to cause nausea and vomiting."
- Yarrow, described as "a toxic lawn weed that causes dermatitis"
- Chinese Rhubarb, "a harsh laxative and dangerous diuretic that can cause sever dehydration and may cause irreversible liver damage"
R.D. is seeking $10 million for the conspiracy she alleges is behind the attempt to hide these products from the consumer. This is the fourth time Jillian has been sued for potentially toxic supplement ingredients.
Please just take our advice, people: if you wish to lose weight, eat in moderation and exercise. That's really the only healthy way to do it.
