Detox remedies are a waste of money, say scientists
Claims by multimillion pound industry queried 'Little evidence' to support makers' assertions By James Randerson, science correspondent The Guardian, Monday 5 January 2009 http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2009/jan/05/detox-science "The charity Sense About Science has compiled a dossier of information on claims made about 11 products including drinks, patches, diet supplements and even a "detox brush". A charity leaflet says: "The multimillion pound detox industry sells products with little evidence to support their use. These products trade on claims about the body which are often wrong." Our bodies are capable of recovering from binges on their own, the scientists argue."
