Deodorants contain dangerous aluminum salts that can excel cancer growth
10/11/2016 // D. Samuelson // Views

Millions of women use brand name deodorants straight from a drug store or grocery store shelf without giving any thought to the toxic chemicals lurking within. To make matters worse, they are unwittingly applying these deodorant sticks and sprays to cleanly shaven underarms that lie adjacent to another important part of the body's immune system - the auxiliary lymph nodes. After shaving, the open pores in the underarm, and those lymph nodes, are made even more vulnerable to chemicals embedded inside most over the counter antiperspirants and deodorants. Some of those chemicals could lead to cancer.

One particular ingredient, aluminum salts, found in many deodorants has been put to the test by Swedish researchers. As reported by, the University of Geneva researchers used rats to determine what the long term exposure of aluminum salts would do. They were actually replicating a study that had already been done with the isolated mammary cells of women. Both studies demonstrated the same result. They discovered that "long-term exposure to concentrations of aluminium caused cells to form tumours and metastasise."

Oncology professor André-Pascal Sappino, the co-author of the study, compared the use of aluminum salts to asbestos, which is banned in the European Union and Switzerland, but not in the United States. He's hoping that Switzerland will soon ban aluminum salts as well.  Even though this study didn't establish a "formal link" with breast cancer, the team's work has added to the growing body of evidence demonstrating the dangers associated with aluminum salts, including cancer. He's advising women - and men - to avoid deodorants that contain this chemical.

Aluminum salts are also known by a few other names. As reported by, aluminum salts can be labeled as "Aluminum chloride, Aluminum trichloride, Aluminum chloride (AlCl3), Aluminium trichloride and Trichloroaluminum; AlCl3." Take a look at what you are spraying or rubbing under your arms. If it contains aluminum salts, or other ingredients that you can't pronounce, toss it. You can use a chemical free alternative available through the

According to, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer for women, besides skin cancer. During a women's lifetime, there is a 12% chance of invasive breast cancer. That's 1 in every 8 women in America.  Men are also subject to breast cancer, though at lower rates. The lifetime risk for men is 1 out of 1000. Why not lower your risk by eliminating aluminum salts from your deodorant?
