According to one writer, people should stop using deodorants and antiperspirants, since they contain triclosan and aluminum -- chemicals linked to major health problems. In fact, almost all deodorants and antiperspirants use these chemicals to form a base that is used to hold the perfumes that give them their scent.
The first chemical, Triclosan, is known to cause cancer in humans as well as a host of other medical problems. As well, aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer's disease, due to high concentrations of the metal in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. And by applying these dangerous chemicals to an area near the underarm lymph nodes, people are ensuring that they are carried through the body.
The rense.com article http://www.rense.com/general64/anti.htm about Triclosan immediately rang an alarm bell about underarm deodorants.
Externally, it can cause skin irritations, but since ".phenols can temporarily deactivate the sensory nerve endings.contact with [triclosan] often causes little or no pain".
"Internally, it can lead to cold sweats, circulatory collapse, convulsions, coma, and even death".
ALUMINUM IS ALSO IN DEODORANTS Another ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum.
In deodorant, aluminum comes in the form of aluminum chlorhydrate.
Heavy metals can be absorbed through the skin.
Think about how this works - right where you apply an aluminum-based deodorant are TWO MAJOR LYMPH GLANDS about an inch away under the skin.
Yes, they are located right in your arm pits.
And your lymph system is a critical part of the body's IMMUNE system.
When you read product labels in any drug store or even in chinamart, you will find as I have that EVERY brand name antiperspirant has this compound.
No different than cooking your eggs "scrambled, over easy or "sunny side up."
An egg is still an egg, and a base is still a base.
My research has found ALL gel and non-gel antiperspirants have it aluminum chlorhydrate, and most these have triclosan.
One such product available in both forms is Brut 33.
This create conditions for these chemicals to be absorbed into the body.
It doesn't guarantee that one will get a brain disorder, but it could be like smoking: the sooner someone quits now, the better off they will be later.
There is one big unanswered question which is unlikely any scientist will obtain research funding for: Can these very common compounds when used together cause other common illnesses - such as type 2 diabetes?
