I just got interesting information from a health seminar. The leading cause of breast cancer is the use of antiperspirant. But don’t worry to wear deodorant. You just need to know some key points. Keep on reading.
The human body has a few areas that are capable to flush the toxins out: behind the knees (some say it is leg’s armpits), behind the ears, groin area, and armpits. The toxins are purged in the form of sweat.
As its name, antiperspirant prevents you from perspiring, thus inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below the underarms. The toxins do not just vanish.
Instead, the body deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot flush them out totally. This causes a high concentration of toxins and leads to cell mutations, i.e. 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.
The Breast Cancer is becoming frightening threat recently. So, the awareness of it may save lives. However, if you are skeptical about these findings, I advise you to do some research for yourself.
In other hand, men are less likely to develop breast cancer prompted by antiperspirant usage because most of the product is caught in their underarm hair and is not directly applied to the skin.
Meanwhile, women who apply antiperspirant right after shaving increase the risk further. It’s because shaving activity causes almost imperceptible nicks in the skin which give the chemicals entrance into the body through your armpits.
And, you know what, the study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found no link between cancer and body odor control cosmetics. They examined the personal hygiene habits of 813 women with breast cancer and 793 healthy women.
“Antiperspirant and deodorant use didn’t differ whether or not participants had breast cancer,” told Dana K. Mirick, an epidemiologist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. This indicates that use of the body odor preventive products does not cause any disease.
But for antiperspirant? It contains aluminum. You better avoid it. At least, until some antithesis published.
