Correct option is (d) Cheese

Easiest explanation: Spirulina, Wild blueberries, Lemon water, chlorella, barley grass juice powder, Atlantic dulse etc. can be used to detoxify the body thereby removing the heavy metals from the body thereby removing the heavy metals from the digestive system of the body whereas, cheese slow down the digestive process thereby slowing down the detoxification process due to their acidic properties to the body.
