Do Kinoki absorbent footpads really work

I am always very suspicious of any product that promises to remove “toxins” because toxins in one of those words that sounds very impressive until you realize that it doesn’t really mean anything.In the blog for his podcast, Brain Dunning gives a very plausible explanation for how products like these seem to work.He suggests that they work mainly through exfoliation:” So it’s a given that the pads will look brown when peeled from your foot, exactly like any adhesive tape would; though this effect is much less dramatic than depicted on the TV commercials, depending on how dirty your feet are. And, as they predict, this color will diminish over subsequent applications, as fewer and fewer of your dead, dirty skin cells remain.”Source:http://skeptoid.com/episodes/4083 Retrieved January 21, 2008.
