Cleansing your blood from toxins is a myth

Surprise: All those detox diets are a scam. From detox foot pads to sweating our butts off in steam rooms, needing to cleanse our “toxic” blood is one of the many fads the wellness industry is trying hard to push onto us, but do they work? No, CollegeHumor’s Adam Conover says (watch, runtime: 04:36). Anything can apparently be toxic if you consume too much of it — so we suggest you think twice before opening your fourteenth bag of sour cheese and onion chips this morning, instead of spending hundreds of EGP on useless “detoxifiers.”
