Deodorants & Breast Cancer

These days we never really know what we eat, breathe, apply, spray, is taking us closer to sickening diseases such as cancer. Harmful chemicals guised beneath labels that proclaim to be natural, low-fat, herbal, organic,  fresh, healthy and all things good make us want to pick them of shelves. You don’t really know which brand to trust, who or what to believe.

During a recent trip to The Body Shop looking for a roll-on, the sales attendant informed me on how aluminum salts present in deodorants and antiperspirants actually increase the risk of breast cancer in women. Now, when a sales attendant tells you that, you’ll probably have your doubts. Ditto.

However, a quick Google search took me to this link here and here and she was right.

The next time you’re out shopping for one, do go through the ingredients list on the various brands available and pick up one that is aluminum salt free.

Or simply pick-up one from The Body Shop’s new range of aluminum salt and paraben free sticks.
