"Forget detox diets", says scientist.

The BBC covers this story here, quoting the chief scientist of the Food Standards Agency, Dr Andrew Wadge, as saying ""There's a lot of nonsense talked about 'detoxing' and most people seem to forget that we are born with a built-in detox mechanism. It's called the liver. So my advice would be to ditch the detox diets and supplements and buy yourself something nice with the money you've saved."

The Guardian, however, continues the quotation, revealing that he continued "Personally, I would recommend the new Neil Young and Steve Earle albums."

There's also a bizarre and less pleasant article about people being burned by an exploding fondue.

Ahhhhh, I love common sense. I just love it, it's almost a form of comedy in this context, with people being reassured that their body has been around a lot longer than dieting has.

Cheers for sharing me old china.
