Myth #8: A Bad Diet Is the Only Source of Toxin Buildup
Processed foods are major sources of toxin buildup in our bodies, but they’re hardly the only ones. Most household cleaners and grooming products contain noxious chemicals that we inhale and absorb through our skin every day. Just like food toxins, they also build up in cells and tissues, hinder normal functioning, and potentially make us sick.
“It’s just as important to detox from all of the chemical products we use in our homes and on our bodies,” says Nolan Cohn. Use your juice cleanse as incentive to ditch highly toxic grooming and cleaning products. Hyman suggests searching the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database and Guide to Healthy Cleaning for safer alternatives.Back to top
