An 18-year-old girl in Hanoi has died after attempting a 12-day detox diet in order to lose weight. Drinking only sugar water with lemon, the girl had lost four kilos when she was admitted to Thanh Nhan Hospital without vital signs. On Tuesday, which was supposed to be the eighth day of her fast, the girl’s parents tried to wake her but she was unresponsive. Doctors were able to resuscitate the girl but she remained in critical condition until the afternoon, when she was pronounced brain dead. Thanks to the internet, this particular fast has recently become popular among Vietnamese women.
