Is Your Deodorant Safe? Find Out!21
I was totally ignorant on this topic until my Aunt Lourdes brought it to my attention one night over dinner. She told me to choose my deodorant wisely because many popular brands pose health risks, especially to women. My aunt is no stranger to disease as a survivor of Melanoma tumors and having recently lost her beloved husband to Esophageal cancer, so I decided to take heed and do a little research of my own. Here's what I found... For the sake of being accurate, let's call these dangerous deodorants what they really are, which is antiperspirants. Don't worry, I will explain and you'll soon know the difference. Most antiperspirants are made with ALUMINUM. Why? Because aluminum prevents our underarms from stinking by blocking sweat from escaping through our pores onto the surface of the skin. The plus side is less sweat and stink but the downside is that antiperspirants prevent the human body from doing it's job, which is to rid itself of toxins. Many of you fitness lovers...
