Does Deodorant Cause Cancer?
Well, no, not exactly.
It’s not the deodorant itself, but some of the ingredients found in common store-bought deodorants which are rather suspicious.
And who tops the most-wanted list? Aluminum, parabens, and propylene glycol. Parabens and glycol are covered elsewhere on this site.
Yes, it is very common for all three of these to be included in one product.
The worst is aluminum.
A new study from the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry found increased aluminum levels in 19 breast cancer patients.
There are dozens of studies on aluminum toxicity, including several that tie aluminum to cancers… Kris McGrath has found a link between the aluminum laden antiperspirant products and breast and prostate cancer.
Lots of science pointing its long, scientific finger, right at aluminum.
But why is aluminum put in these products if it’s so dangerous?
Well, aluminum enters the sweat glands and binds with sweat particles, stopping sweating and clogging up the body’s normal lymphatic drainage system while introducing aluminum particles into the blood stream, where they can enter the brain. Did you know that biopsies of autopsy patients reveal abnormally high aluminum concentration in the brain?
Still, why use it if it’s so dangerous?
Because in todays increasingly body-centric society, many men and women simply don’t want to sweat. Aluminum is a surefire, if not downright dangerous, way to stop sweating.
But sweating is GOOD for you! It regulates temperature and removes dangerous toxins from the body.
Companies are interested in the bottom-line, not necessarily what’s in the best interests of their customers long-term health.
The deodorant on this website, Ozone Layer, uses two ingredients, shea butter and beeswax, without hiding any secret aluminum (think of the salt rock deodorants), parabens, or other strange chemicals.
