Breast cancer is the main cause of death among women aged between 35-54 years. In the USA, men have a 43% chance to develop cancer during their life – in women, the chances stand at 37%. What really causes breast cancer is not discussed enough right now.
Aluminum and breast cancer
Skin is the largest organ of the body, constantly absorbing things from the surface, including creams, lotions, makeup and beauty products in general. They seem harmless, until you find out what they’re made of. Here are a few examples of their contents:
Aluminum – responsible for breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease
Propylene glycol – antifreeze agent
Parabens – disrupts hormones
Formaldehyde – a well-known carcinogenic substance
Phthalates – disrupts hormones
Various antibacterial agents – they affect the immune and endocrine system negatively
Aluminum salts are especially popular in the cosmetic industry. However, recent studies, like one published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, confirm that tested malignant breast tissues contained high doses of aluminum. It was even found in breast milk! Aluminum is a strong neurotoxin, and it’s been linked to Alzheimer’s and autism. “It causes all kinds of unusual biochemical reactions in the body, including the brain” says Dr. Chris Shaw, a neuroscientist and Professor at the University of British Columbia.

How to detox your armpits
Go to a sauna
The body expels toxins and cools down naturally by sweating. Increasing the amount of sweat is a great way of detoxing the armpits. It will also boost your immune system.
Drink mineral water
Drinking water will keep you hydrated and will help the body flush out the toxins. Aluminum can be flushed out by drinking high-silica content mineral water – purchase it at your local health food store.

Most deodorants and antiperspirants contain many toxic chemicals besides aluminum. Read the product labels before buying them. Even the organic ones need to be checked!
