Dump the detox
Posted by Andrew Wadge on 27 December 2007 in Science, safety and health
Been overdoing the feasting and tempted by the latest 'detox' diet or supplements? Well here's a good idea to help you recover and save you money at the same time. First, drink a glass or two of water (tap is fine, cheaper and more sustainable than bottled); second, get a little exercise - maybe a walk in the park - and third, enjoy some nice home-cooked food. There's a lot of nonsense talked about 'detoxing' and most people seem to forget that we are born with a built-in detox mechanism. It's called the liver. So my advice would be to ditch the detox diets and supplements and buy yourself something nice with the money you've saved. Personally, I would recommend the new Neil Young and Steve Earle albums. What about you? Happy New Year!
