Did you know that you do not have to use aluminum-based anti perspirants or deodorants to provide you with excellent odor control & continual freshness?
Most commercial antiperspirant products unnaturally block your sweat glands, and accumulate in the lymph glands near your breast tissue. Deodorants use chemical biocides to kill the odor-causing bacteria & also kill the good, natural skin-protecting bacteria (probiotics) on your skin. These biocides are absorbed in the body and can bioaccumulate.
Experts have warned that using spray deodorants leads to inhaling chemicals from the aerosols that can cause allergic skin reactions, asthma and breathing difficulties.
Recent research published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information suggests that frequent use of antiperspirants can cause aluminum to accumulate in breast tissue, and aluminum might be of greater concern if you have kidney problems, especially if your kidney function is about 30 percent or less.” says Benjamin Chan, DO.
Dr. Chan explained, "Too much aluminum in your body can cause bone diseases or dementia. Usually, excess aluminum is filtered out of your body by your kidneys; but, people with weakened kidney function can’t filter aluminum fast enough".
Parabens (chemical estrogens and hormone disruptors) are frequently found in deodorant products, and they accumulate in the body - especially in the fat. It’s true that parabens can be absorbed through the skin and once they are in your body, they can function as estrogen, a female hormone that’s important for sexual development, breast health, and other bodily functions. A higher lifetime exposure to estrogen may also increase your breast cancer risk. Parabens are frequently found in most breast cancer tumors.
