    Yes, but you can literally get sick from the cleanliness it would cause.

    Soap is generally non-toxic. What it can do however is kill the normal bacterial flora in your gut. When that happens, you will have all sorts of sickness in the stomach and intestines which may include pain, diarrhea or constipation. There is a chance that bad bacteria will grow in place of the good ones that were killed. This accumulation of harmful bacteria can kill you.

    He's kidding. Why would you need to "clean" your insides in the first place.  The vomiting and diarrhea that would ensue from eating soap certainly would clean you out. It could also poison you.
