Does using a nutritional cleanse have any health value for an adult?

Does using a nutritional cleanse have any health value for an adult?

Yes: We live in a toxic world. Every person has many toxins, such as heavy metals, pesticides, pcb's, dioxins, pthalates, pbb's etc. Detoxification programs can lower our body burdens of these chemicals & research shows people generally feel better after such programs & this may be the best way to prevent disease! I advise everyone to do an annual cleanse. There are many ways to cleanse- see comment:.
