Safe Non-Toxic Deodorants May Lessen The Cancer RiskSafe Non-Toxic Deodorants May Lessen The Cancer Risk

Our generation has made revolutionary inventions and discoveries our forefathers never thought of during their era. We also now live in a world where everything is available in an instant. The trade-off however is, many of the products we now use are laden with toxic chemicals.

Research has shown that a lot of the home and personal care products we use daily expose us to toxins that can bring on ailments. Allergic reactions may also be brought about by intolerance to some chemical ingredients. Certain components of antiperspirants for example, contain aluminium chlorohydrate and parabens which have been suspected to contribute to symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and cancer.

Over the last quarter of the century, cases of breast cancer in Britain have doubled from about 20,000 per year in the late 1970s to almost 40,000 nowadays. One possibility for the alarming increase is that the majority of anti- perspirants contain chemicals such as zirconium and aluminium that are absorbed through the hair follicles and react with water to cause swelling of the area.

Scientists at Reading University have published new research that points to the possible link between the use of anti-perspirants (containing aluminium) and the rising rates of breast cancer. Researchers originally deduced that a build-up of toxins in the lymph nodes of the armpits was caused by inhibiting perspiration, which can cause changes near the breasts after some time.

Researchers now think there is another way in which anti-perspirants may increase the cancer risk. In recent laboratory tests aluminium and zirconium have been found to enter the cells and cause DNA mutation that could lead to cancerous growth and disrupt hormone levels.

Is there a link? Yes, since anti-perspirants contain aluminium salts with metal ions that mimic the effect of oestrogen, they may add to the breast cancer factor risk.

"Since oestrogen is known to be involved in the development of human breast cancer, any components
in the environment that have oestrogenic activity and which can enter the human breast could theoretically influence a women's risk of breast cancer", says Dr. Phillippa Daibre, author of the review who works in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Reading.

So why should we take the risk then? True enough toxins are everywhere in our environment and we have developed some resistance to it, but why add to it when we can avoid it? If you prefer to remain cautious while research continues, choose your antiperspirants, deodorants, and other personal care products carefully. Check the labels, and avoid those that contain aluminium or parabens (listed as methyl, ethyl, propyl, or butyl parabens).

But do we have an alternative? Most leading brands today contain aluminium and zirconium-based components. It may be hard to look for one, but there is actually a safe alternative - Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant Stick. Forever Living Products is proud to offer the safe alternative - an aloe-based product that has eliminated these risks by avoiding aluminium and zirconium in its state-of-the-art formulation.

The Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant Stick is a very good gentle formula containing stabilised aloe vera gel that provides effective all-day protection against underarm odour and can be applied directly after showering. Its gentle formulation including soothing aloe vera means it can also be applied directly after shaving or underarm waxing without stinging.

Aloe Ever Shield can also be used during chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment, whereas most consultants will categorically tell their patients not to use chemical-based anti-perspirants during such treatments.

We don't have full control over environmental factors that can damage our health - by using Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant Stick, you are protected naturally without adding ingredients that could jeopardise your health. It makes sense. So use it!
