Where do statements like this come from?

From the Fasting International web site and a countless other natural healing sources,

"There are 5-to-10 lbs. of toxic chemicals now locked into the average adult's cells, tissue and organ storage."

Can someone PLEASE tell me where the heck this information came from? Am I just supposed to accept it on faith? Because somebody who calls himself a guru said so?

Look, I'm willing to believe it -- if someone would give me a smidgen of evidence. But I've yet to see any, simply this statement made over and over again.

What I love about Dr. D'Adamo is that his hypothesis is based on not only on clinical observation or personal experience or anecdotes, but on scientific biochemical principles that are reflected in quite a few articles published in peer reviewed journals. His diet hasn't been thoroughly tested, but the theory behind the diet has some good science to support it. Given that it's not harmful, that's enough for me to consider it and give it a try. But statements that include buzzwords like, "toxins and cleansing" just irritate me to no end.

So, can anyone explain to me where these statements come from, other than people selling something?
