Deodorant & Cancer
For gals, be careful.
For pals, this is for your girlfriend / spouse.
Deodorants (non-antiperspirants) are very hard to find but there are a few out there. A health seminar in the US presented findings that the leading cause of breast cancer is the use of anti-perspirant.
Yes ANTI-PERSPIRANT. Most of the products out there are an anti-perspirant /deodorant combination so go home and check your labels.
Deodorant is fine, anti-perspirant is not.
Here’s why: The human body has a few areas that it uses to purge toxins; behind the knees, behind the ears, groin area, and armpits.
The toxins are purged in the form of perspiration.
Anti-perspirant, as the name clearly indicates, prevents you from perspiring, thereby inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below the armpits. These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot sweat them out. This causes a high concentration of toxins and leads to cell mutations: a.k.a. CANCER.
Nearly all breast cancer tumors occur in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes are located.
Additionally, men are less likely (but not completely exempt) to develop breast cancer prompted by anti-perspirant usage because most of the anti-perspirant product is caught in their hair and is not directly applied to the skin. Women who apply anti-perspirant right after shaving increase the risk further because shaving causes almost imperceptible nicks in the skin which give the chemicals entrance into the body from the armpit area.
PLEASE pass this along to anyone you care about. Breast Cancer is becoming frighteningly common. This awareness may save lives. If you are skeptical about these findings, I urge you to do some research for yourself.
You will arrive at the same conclusions, I assure you.
