Detox debunked in The Metro

Great comments from the British Dietetic Association (BDA) in this piece that points out there's no scientific evidence behind detox diets and potions. "The body does a perfectly good job of eliminating any substances on its own." says BDA spokesperson Rick Miller.

  • About time!

  • Yes, excellent. But the media should always be asking a Registered Dietitian rather than the nutritional therapists they frequently seem to prefer, so the question has to be, how can we persuade them to do this all the time?

  • I think one of the reasons they choose nutritionists is their views are often not mainstream. Questioning mainstream assertions is also important.

  • I suspect many do not know or understand the difference and having someone with controversial views makes for good copy - or so they believe.
