Research shows that one of the leading causes of Breast Cancer could be the use of antiperspirants.
The toxins are purged from the body in the form of perspiration and antiperspirant as the name clearly suggests prevents you from perspiring, thereby inhibiting the body from purging Toxins from the armpit area.
Aluminum chlorohydrate is an astringent that is used as a topical antiperspirant or body deodorant.
Aluminum also happens to be a neurotoxin that alters the function of the blood-brain barrier, linking it to Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the signs are usually a change in consistency of the breast tissue or lumps found in the breast. This cancer can also occur in males although this is not as common as it is in females.
There is a lot of controversy about this topic, some doctors think that the antiperspirant-cancer link is a lot of bull.
Here is a part of Q&A from the National Cancer Institute:
Findings from a different study examining the frequency of underarm shaving and antiperspirant/deodorant use among 437 breast cancer survivors were released in 2003. This study found that the age of breast cancer diagnosis was significantly earlier in women who used these products and shaved their underarms more frequently. Furthermore, women who began both of these underarm hygiene habits before 16 years of age were diagnosed with breast cancer at an earlier age than those who began these habits later. While these results suggest that underarm shaving with the use of antiperspirants/deodorants may be related to breast cancer, it does not demonstrate a conclusive link between these underarm hygiene habits and breast cancer.
