Most of us brush our teeth, wash our face and roll on some deodorant without much thought. What you might not realize is that one of these products may be causing irreparable damage to your health – your deodorant.
Even though new research shows that aluminum has cancer-causing properties, it’s still considered perfectly acceptable to eat, inject into your body as a vaccine adjuvant and to wear as an antiperspirant by most health officials. This mindset is unacceptable and you as a consumer have a choice of what you put on and in your body.
Aluminum-based antiperspirants work by blocking the pores that release sweat under your arms. Although that might not sound that bad, this heavy metal also blocks your body’s ability to detoxify itself and has demonstrated harmful effects when absorbed by the body.
The Journal of Applied Toxicology has shown that absorbed aluminum is deposited in your breast tissue which may suggest that raised levels of aluminum as a biomarker for identifying women with higher risks for developing breast cancer.
Many leading brands of deodorant contain aluminum, synthetic fragrances and other harmful ingredients that your body, not only doesn’t need, but shouldn’t be interacting with at all. We strongly suggest that you seek out brands with natural ingredients that are aluminum-free.
