Detox

Whilst flicking through TV channels recently, I came across a consumer advice programme, where the reporter was researching the effectiveness of self-administered ‘detox’ products. The TV crew followed her for three days as she consumed nothing but ‘specially formulated’ fruit and vegetable juice drinks of various colours. At the end of the experiment, she visited a nutrition expert to discuss the results.

I have recreated the conversation that followed, with the help of my Stick People…

The reporter seemed surprised…

The expert’s assessment wasn’t that well-received…

The exchange made me chuckle, as it reminded me of this sort of thing…

Standby for the chap on the left to say, “Thanks Stick Child – that’s really helpful. I know what I must do!”

Or perhaps…

Oh dear. As writer Aldous Huxley said in 1927:

“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored”.
