Your Deodorant Affects Your Brain

It’s time to change your deodorant! In 1993, the World Health Organization said, “There is a suspected link between Alzheimer’s disease and the toxicity of aluminum.” The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry reports that “exposure to high levels of aluminum may result in respiratory and neurological problems.” Aluminum, as an ingredient in deodorant, makes you smell nice by preventing toxins from leaving the body. The toxins that would have escaped in the sweat have nowhere to go. What’s more, “antiperspirants are designed to be absorbed”; therefore, the sweat glands and lymph glands in and around the underarms then absorb the toxicity, and this affects the endocrine and lymphatic systems, creating a potential risk factor in breast cancer.

So, sweat is good, and aluminum free deodorants can save your brain and your health!
