From a recent UK Advertisings Standards ruling:
"Marketers have tried in the past to establish that the human body accumulates toxins that can be purged. CAP and the ASA understand that the body’s liver and kidneys automatically detoxify and excrete many toxic materials, including metabolic wastes. Advertisers have previously tried to claim that foot pads or foot patches can detoxify the body. To date, neither CAP nor the ASA has seen evidence that these types of products can remove toxins from the body."
