Deodorants and antiperspirants side effects
Deodorants and antiperspirants can cause breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Benign side effects of Deodorants and antiperspirants are skin irritation and allergies, but more serious dangers of deodorants can be vulvar dermatitis.
Deodorants have been linked to breast cancer, because many deodorants use Parabens as preservatives, and breast tumors have been found to contain larger concentration of these chemicals.
An alleged danger of deodorants is that they could cause Alzheimer's disease due to the fact that they contain Aluminium salts such as Aluminium Chlorhydrate (to close the pores), and that the brains of Alzheimer's patients contain high levels of toxic Aluminium. In 1993, the World Health Organization stated that there is a suspected link between Alzheimer's disease and the toxicity of Aluminum. The long term side effects of the use of Aluminium in antiperspirants might be responsible for the tangles and plaques in the brain of Alzheimer patients.
In addition to that, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry said that exposure to high levels of Aluminum may result in neurological and respiratory problems. Aluminium is a heavy metal that accumulates in the brain. (Aluminium is not 'heavy' per se but a metal is a 'heavy metal' when its specific gravity is above 5 so Aluminium is a heavy metal in the chemical meaning of the word). Toxic Aluminium can be removed from the brain by a special cleansing method, a detox called chelation therapy.
Antiperspirants and deodorants have also been suspected in causing problems with the lymph glands or sweat glands.
As an aside - almost any chemical that can be smelled is harmful to people - including fragrances. If you can smell it, it can be breathed in and pumped around your organs. Deodorants have more harmful effects than most people think.
