First is the avoidance of such intake, but it is not a very practical solution, we can give up smoking or dilute water but we can't just give up and go an live on an unpolluted desert island. The other choice is to adjust our diet to enable the detoxification mechanisms we have to be enhanced and work to their best potential.
