Megan Fox usually gets in trouble with women and the press for saying dumb things about how she loves to fart. Now, health experts are the latest to drink the Megan haterade -- because The Douchebaguette is saying that drinking vinegar is a great way to lose weight.

Yep, Megan has been quoted as saying that drinking vinegar "just cleanses out your system entirely," a claim that experts say is completely unfounded.

See, she doesn't really diet or exercise, but she claims that vinegar erases all the evils of her insatiable sweet tooth. Umm ... couldn't it be the fact that she's 23 and probably still has a killer metabolism? Or maybe that she reaps the benefits of fame that include catered meals and, likely, a chef?

Of course, Fox isn't the only person who believes in the health benefits of vinegar. Throughout history, folk medicine has made numerous claims about vinegar, particularly apple cider vinegar. In addition to weight-loss claims, some people say apple cider vinegar can treat diabetes, reduce blood cholesterol levels, and prevent diseases like cancer and osteoporosis.

Not so, says dietician Lucy Jones in a interview with Australia's Sun Herald. "The body, including the liver, is a well-oiled detoxing machine, which will not be improved by vinegar, whether it be organic, apple cider, unfiltered, or your bog-standard malt vinegar," she explains.
