44. We are mostly in agreement, then
Edited on Wed May-24-06 04:34 PM by TechBear_Seattle
The research that has been done indicates that the sense of wellness that comes from staying on a "detox" diet comes mostly from eating quality food and avoiding the crap that makes up so much of the typical American diet. And you are right: a healthy diet is a healthy diet. Any reduction in toxins are the result of not consuming the toxins in the first place, and not the result of the food removing toxins.

I agree that people who are affected by toxins right now should do what they can; I disagree that going on a "detox" diet will do any good. Either you eat healthy or you do not; a special diet that you stick with for only a few days or a few weeks will have no long term impact if you return to eating crap afterwards. As I see it, people who peddle "detox" diets and regimens are little different than the shysters who peddle sawdust and ground-up bones as "the miracle cure for cancer that Big Medicine is conspiring to keep from you."
