Detox - Is it really a good idea?

"There is no evidence that those detox diets do any kind of detoxification in the body," says Andrea Giancoli, MPH, RD, dietitian and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in Hermosa Beach, Calif.

"In reality, if you really want to detox your body the best thing to do is have a diet that has plenty of fibre, plenty of fruits and vegetables, a lot of whole grains, a lot of plant foods so that your immune system, your liver, kidneys, lungs and other organs in your body can naturally do their job to detox you on its own," says Giancoli. http://www.thespec.com/living-story/4512982-are-cleanse-diets-really-a-good-idea-/
