One day, Amar woke up with a mild headache. Unlike everyday, he felt like lying in his bed a bit longer. At the breakfast table, when Radhika, his wife, served him his usual baked beans on toast, he didn’t seem to have an appetite. A glass of juice was what he had eventually.

In reality, Amar was fit as a fiddle. Then why was he consuming less? After partying practically everyday in the last week of the fading year, eating excessive amounts of junk, boozing and hitting the roof in discs late into the night, the party animal in him was taking a break.

Let’s take a look at the factors through which toxins attack.
