As a Dietitian who was trained “old school”, I have always cringed at the old “detox” claims.

There is no detox, rehab aside guys. The liver does a lovely job doing that on its own, you guys are crazy!”
Yeah, I do admit, I still do that cringe when I see 3 day juice cleanses and odd packages of detox drinks sold in some stores and still suffer from (pdpss) post dinner party shock syndrome after being informed by someone that “toxins escape through the soles of your feet” but I think we need to look at the term detox in a new light.

Last week, my son’s year 4 class had the kind of homework I love.
