If it was in a Superman movie, why not believe it, right? Our bodies can use sunlight to process vitamin D. That's what I've heard about. Plants have chlorophyll. They convert sunlight into sugars. We eat the sugars.

If someone can go for a super long period of time without eating and stay healthy, that's a miracle. A 40 day fast is possible, though. I know of someone whose done it, probably more than one.

A lot of this 'detox' stuff is a myth. There are people who believe they can eat saturated fats and preservatives for 30 years, and then go for a week eating broccoli shakes and that is supposed to suck all kinds of poison from their bloodstream. I hear, it takes 7 years to replace all the molecules from our bodies with new ones. It takes a while to 'cleanse' from bad eating habits. A week of drinking broccoli won't do it. People who sell books on fasting may insist that toxins are stored in the fat. Is there any kind of scientific literature to back that up? Fasting may have some health benefits. I'm suspicious of calling it 'detox.'

fasting is a good way to neglect your body of the nutrients it needs for survival. Eating very clean and drinking juiced fruits and veggies are the way to go. Tea with ginger (the actual root). Coupled with frequent trips to the sauna (preferably an infarred sauna). Seriously consider supplementing nascent iodine and selenium. Google Dr. Edward Group for some good tips. Of course, with anything else, trial-n-error is something you must go through to see what is ideal. Don't forget a probiotic. It helps flushes you from within.

The word 'detox' refers to the elimination of toxins from the body. Either it be from the organs or the skin. You need natural laxatives and you gotta sweat profusely.
