Who would have thought that spraying chemicals and metals directly into the cancer-carrying lymphatic system would pose a danger to health? You learn something every day.
‘It has long been surmised that the aluminum compounds used in many antiperspirant deodorant products may be a cause of cancer. But a new study out of Switzerland confirms this to be true, showing that aluminum chloride, a common additive in antiperspirant deodorant that blocks moisture, exerts an estrogen-like effect that directly promotes the growth and spread of breast cancer cells.
This groundbreaking research from the University of Geneva looks at aluminum chloride’s role in temporarily blocking sweat glands in the underarm. The toxic compound essentially lodges itself inside the skin in order to accomplish this, and over time builds up in breast tissue. Mimicking the effects of estrogen, aluminum chloride in the long term acts as fuel for the formation of cancer tumors, helping them to form and spread throughout the body.’
