Word for Word: Toxin
Welcome to another installment of words that should be put to rest for a while. You've heard it, you've probably done it, but have you ever stopped to consider what it means to purify your body of toxins?
The New York Times has a great article about what it really means to detoxify. We won't rehash it, but rather we encourage you to check it out. (Hint: your body handles it all on its own! So the next time your yoga instructor tells you that deepening your pose will help sweat out the toxins, you can laugh and loudly explain why s/he's wrong, and have the whole class resent you for being loud, obnoxious, and ruining the premise of their juice-cleanse Kickstarter campaign.
If you're not into that, maybe just laugh on the inside.)
