ABSTRACT
The article discusses aspects of detoxification and cleansing of the body. It mentions that dietitians and doctors have claimed that detoxification can set people free from chemicals, preservatives and additive load of toxic exposures as well environmental exposure. However, charity Sense About Science project participant Alice Tuff states that people have the right to know whether claims of commercial producers and retailer about detoxification are empty or based on scientific evidence.
