To kick off the new year, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed she'll be starting a CLEAN program by Dr. Alejandro Junger, loved by fellow A-listers including Demi Moore and Debra Messing. We caught up with Dr. Junger, who shared his advice on minimising the effects of party season on our bodies and talking us through toxins so that we can have a happy and healthy 2012.
Everyone knows that toxins are bad, but what are they exactly? Toxins can be of 2 kinds:
- Endogenous: the waste products of our body's normal metabolism such as lactic acid, uric acid, homocysteine, etc.
- Exogenous: the chemicals we add to our life such as preservatives, colouring agents, fragrances, sweeteners, antibiotics, fertilisers, pesticides, chlorine, pollution and more.
