The Body’s Detoxification System
The body eliminates waste and toxins through the kidneys, liver, digestive system, lungs and skin. But our diets and lifestyle affect how well it works.
Alcohol, smoking, fatty foods, salt, sugar, lack of exercise, and a good night’s sleep all contribute to our body’s detoxification processes not working properly.
