Using antipersprints and your health

Last edited Sun Dec 29, 2019, 06:42 PM - Edit history (1)

Well, good news. Use Witch Hazel as the way you would use an deodorant, works great as a deodorant ... soak a piece of tissue paper or sponge and apply to your underarms and this natural application will provide the results you desire, minus the Alzheimer's.


https://www.webmd.com/breast-cancer/features/antiperspirant-facts-safety#1

A few studies in recent years have theorized that aluminum-based antiperspirants may increase the risk for breast cancer.

According to the authors of these studies, most breast cancers develop in the upper outer part of the breast -- the area closest to the armpit, which is where antiperspirants are applied. The studies suggest that chemicals in antiperspirants, including aluminum, are absorbed into the skin, particularly when the skin is nicked during shaving. These studies claim that those chemicals may then interact with DNA and lead to cancerous changes in cells, or interfere with the action of the female hormone estrogen, which is known to influence the growth of breast cancer cells.

1. I've used a natural deodorant roll-on for about 15 years

Tried a whole bunch till I found this one. It works well.

I will say, though, that in my younger years, I really needed an antiperspirant because my pits used to sweat profusely (female hormones, at a guess). Now, I just sweat all over when I'm flashing!

2. I use Thai deodorant stone. A $5 or $6 deodorant lasts me about 2_years. It's not an antiperspirant,

3. Plenty of mainstream deodorants are aluminum free

Old Spice is one that comes to mind and what I use.

No need to use an ineffective herbal to avoid Alzheimer's risk, there are better options

5. Between the heat and humidity in Houston

I haven't found an aluminum free deodorant that works for more than a couple of hours in the summer. HOWEVER, after I shower, I find it helps to use an alcohol based hand sanitizer on my pits to kill 99.99% of the bacteria. It dries quickly and then I put on deodorant or antiperspirant.

6. Men get 2% of all breast cancers.

If antiperspirant were the cause, wouldn't they have an incidence comparable to women?

12. People, READ the damn article!

It refutes the idea that antiperspirant's are bad for you. It quotes several "studies" and then reviews them. Their conclusions:

Antiperspirants: Should You Worry?

In short: No. There is no real scientific evidence that aluminum or any of the other ingredients in these products pose any threat to human health.

21. It isn't.

I keep getting bombed by e-mails from lawyers, screaming "LAST CHANCE!" for me to sue Roundup, or Zantac, or the latest one I got this morning, talcum powder for my ovarian cancer. (I'm a male, BTW...)

I call all of these "Breast Implant Lawsuits 2.0."

Panicky and hysterical screams about "CANCER! ALZHEIMERS! AUTISM!" yet when actual *gasp* science is applied, the hysterical claims seem to disappear.
So the panic-spreaders scream "COVER-UP!"

July of 2018, I had an operation for prostate cancer. Seems to be ok now.

Who should I sue?

The product I used the most in that area, was toilet paper.
Should I sue the toilet paper makers?

Or could it be that my family is a little prone to getting cancer?
(2 sisters had it, and my Dad died of cancer)

25. "experts have essentially ruled out aluminum as a possible cause of Alzheimer's" - YOUR LINK

But go ahead, write a fearmongering OP. Why would you care if you get people needlessly worried, if it makes you feel good?

As your link says:

So why do the rumors about antiperspirant use and disease persist?

"The Internet, by its very nature, is a great medium for recycling old issues over and over again," Bailey says. "And I think there is a tendency for some people to use these scare tactics to their own advantage."

26. And Alzheimer's was unheard of before people started using antipersperants?

Or is it breast cancer that no one got? Both are mentioned.

This is the sort of bullshit pseudoscience that is actually harmful.

Oh, and in case someone wants to start ranting about how cancer is a disease of modern civilization, you need to know that dinosaurs got cancer. And some years ago someone did an excavation of a number of graves in a cemetery from the early Middle Ages, and determined essentially that people a thousand years ago got cancer at essentially the same rates that modern people do.

over 20 years ago, because of health warnings about the aluminum. Glad I paid attention.

Since we lived in the tropics, let's just say we could always tell if she'd been "inspecting" our rooms in our absence.

free choice as a consumer of any product is the responsibility of each one of us ... I prefer a non chemical, natural approach, especially when it works.
