“…the British Dietetic Association (BDA), which represents 6,000 UK dieticians, says there is no "potion or lotion" to "magically" rid the body of chemicals. "You are buying into a marketing myth if you choose, say, a three-day detox kit," says Catherine Collins, a dietician and spokesperson for the BDA. "These detox products often take a convoluted approach to getting rid of toxins and try to blind people with science – and can be very expensive." Left to its own devices the skin, kidneys, liver and lymphatic system combine to make the body capable of getting rid of most toxins it takes in. But if you want to help optimise your body's health, there are plenty of ways to detox without stretching your purse-strings.” The Guardian (3rd January 2010)
