There are those who think that it is not that important to detoxify because the body does that on its own. This is true, but the problem is that there are so many pollutants on the air than that the body can handle on its own and the bad part is that you do not get to know about how the chemicals in the air are going to affect you in the long term because many of the companies that produce them have no obligation to conduct long-term studies. When you put the body to overcome all this on its own besides fighting metals which occur naturally in the body like mercury and lead is not realistic.
