    The reason is - I don't believe I need to. My liver and kidneys do all the detoxing my body needs and I don't see a need to use any product claimed to enhance that. Detoxing is a waste of money and is potentially harmful. I've seen it mentioned a few times here so I thought I would provide a link to an alternative view:

    Oh dear - you're obviously not gullible enough to benefit from all these wonder detox products...:D:D:D

    It reminds me years ago of a new moisturising product that being advertised with a wonderful scientific sounding magic ingredient - my sister who'd done A level chemistry was laughing herself silly over it as it apparently just meant "large molecules"...

    It's also fun to toy with people by pretending to be concerned about dihydrogen monoxide... which is water ;)
