“People are interested in this so-called detoxification, but when I ask them what they are trying to get rid of, they aren’t really sure.” Yes, you’ve got some toxins in your body. No, juice will not get rid of them. From the NYT: “To say that drinking juice detoxifies the body isn’t quite the same as claiming leeches suck out poisons, but it’s fairly close.” (Trust me on this. You want to get the artisanal leeches.)
