How To Detox Your Armpits In 7 Days To Prevent Breast Cancer!

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.

If you use deodorants and antiperspirants for a long time, read below how to detoxify the armpits by changing a few lifestyle habits.

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.

Change your deodorant

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!
