How to do without the harmful deodorants-antiperspirants

Thirty four million eight hundred ninety thousand seven hundred twenty three

Unfortunately few people think that deodorants, which are now crammed shelves of all the stores and that are actively promoted to us on TV, cause us great harm.

  • They are one of the main causes of breast cancer
A recent study of British scientists from reading University have shown that deodorants and antiperspirants can cause breast cancer (breast cancer). Experts have examined about 20 different samples of breast cancer (breast cancer) and found that they accumulate parabens included in the composition of antiperspirants and deodorants, with the average concentration of 20.6 ng per gram of tissue. Thus, these chemical compounds was presented in a form that is able to penetrate only through the skin (e.g., during the use of deodorant or antiperspirant).

The scientists also noted that the parabens in its effects similar to female hormones. Perhaps for this reason, they may provoke uskorenii the growth of breast cancer (breast cancer). As it turned out, the skin of the armpits, especially after shaving, absorbs aluminum — the main active ingredient of antiperspirants. Once in the body, this substance mimics the action of the hormone estrogen, which contributes to malignant transformation of breast cells.

In his book “Living Green,” Greg horn is conducting a little experiment: RUB the sole of the foot with a slice of garlic, cut in half. In a few minutes you will taste garlic in your mouth. Our skin absorbs applied product, so we should know well about the properties of any product and apply it with caution.

  • Antiperspirants block the sweating.
Unlike deodorizers that just conceal the smell of sweat, antiperspirants prevent perspiration. Compounds of aluminium and zinc, are included in their composition, close sebaceous glands. The sweat is produced, but on the surface of the skin misses. It is clear that to "lock" the pot, which are excreted from the body toxic substances that are not useful — because that way our body cleans itself. And we don't allow him to do so. And then wonder why we become more sick..

  • Aluminium has a harmful effect on the human brain.
Aluminium detected in some elderly people suffering from memory loss, confusion or dementia, and may lead to degradation of the personality. In studies of the aluminium associated with the brain lesions characteristic of Alzheimer's disease (in the hair of patients have elevated levels of aluminum).

  • The main ingredients found in antiperspirant products is the preservatives: parabens, propylene glycol, skin damage cell membranes causing rashes and itching
How else is the impact of aluminium on the human body:

Aluminum has the ability to accumulate in the body, causing a number of serious illnesses. Doctors discover new negative consequences of contact with him. It is established that aluminum has a negative impact on metabolism, especially mineral in the function of the nervous system, and affects the reproduction and growth of cells. The most important clinical manifestations of neurotoxic action include violations of motor activity, convulsions, decrease or memory loss, psychotic reactions. An excess of aluminum salts reduces the delay of calcium in the body, reduces the adsorption of phosphorus at the same time 10-20 times increases the content of aluminum in the bones, liver, testes, brain and parathyroid gland. The excess of aluminium inhibits the synthesis of hemoglobin, causes fluorosis of the teeth and specific damage to the bones (bone fluorosis); may cause or exacerbate tumors of bone.

The same aluminium inhibits the absorption of many bio-elements and vitamins (such as calcium, magnesium, iron, vitamin B6, ascorbic acid) and sulfur-containing amino acids. There is evidence of mutagenic activity of aluminum.

And here are excerpts from the article S. V. Moiseeva, Moscow medical University. I. M. Sechenov on the topic of the effects of aluminum on the human body.

Great interest in research is the role of aluminium in development of Alzheimer's disease In 9 of the 13 epidemiological studies showed Association between the consumption of aluminium from drinking water and dementia. There are reports of increased concentrations of aluminium in neurofibrillary tangles and senile plaques and in brain tissue from patients with Alzheimer's dementia. Moreover, in animal experiments using drugs of aluminium could cause development of various pathological changes and clinical symptoms are similar to those in dementia of Alzheimer's type.

Aluminium and pregnancy

Experiments on animals indicate that aluminum crosses the placenta and accumulates in fetal tissues, causing various disorders of development, including in utero death, malformations, delayed ossification of the skeleton, retardation of growth and development [21, 22]. The possibility of intoxication with aluminium following oral administration of its application largely depends on the bioavailability of drug used and the presence in food of other substances that enhance the absorption of aluminum.

In many European countries there are certain restrictions regarding the use of aluminum-containing antacids in pregnant and lactating women. For example, in Austria, France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland in the package inserts of such tools provided that their use during pregnancy and lactation should be only on the advice of a doctor or pharmacist [2]. The most complete information about the possible unwanted properties of the aluminum contained in the instructions, which are registered in Germany [2]:

"The simultaneous use of drugs with beverages containing acid, such as fruit juice or wine, leads to an increased absorption of aluminium in the gut."

"To avoid intoxication by aluminium in the child, during pregnancy, the drug can be taken only for a short period of time. Aluminum salts penetrate into breast milk."


Unfortunately aluminium in addition to deodorants and antiperspirants in the today contains very many of the usual care — toothpastes (aluminium lactate, even the emphasis in advertising), creams, ointments, carcasses, or the mode lipstick, as it is contained in some medicines and in a large amount in the dish. Yes, Yes, in the same aluminum pan. But that's a separate issue.

"Aluminum medicine" deserve special discussion. Hydroxides of aluminum are part of the basic vaccines. A group of Western scholars have shown that it greatly reduces the immune system, and children can develop allergies to literally everything.


Advertising has the ability to "sell" us something that we don't have, firmly implanted in our heads the idea that we are without this, something can not live. Meanwhile, there are quite harmless and easy alternative to antiperspirants.

By the way, the sweat of a healthy person consists of 90% water and has no odor. Actively "smell" it starts under the action of microorganisms that live in the excretory ducts of the sebaceous glands, as well as malnutrition (especially contributes to the unpleasant smell of meat — all vegetarians noted a sharp reduction or almost disappearance of the smell of sweat). If you take a shower in the morning and evening, and during the day as emergency help for wet sites to use wipes, even in the summer it is possible to live without deodorants and antiperspirants.

How to reduce or remove the smell of sweat

✔ baking soda
Wet fingers or a cotton swab dipped in baking soda and apply to underarms. Sweating will remain, but the smell of sweat will disappear. In the hot season you can repeat this procedure 3 times a day. (immediately after shaving underarms soda is better not to apply, because it can cause irritation to the small cracks and cuts)

✔ oak bark
Prepare a decoction of oak bark — 1 tbsp per Cup of water. A cotton swab dipped in water to wipe clean the armpits.

✔ Apple cider vinegar (natural, home — do not purchase!)

✔ rock salt.
It very effectively eliminates the smell of sweat all day, and buy rock salt in the usual form, and flavored. Rock salt contains natural aluminium compounds that kill bacteria in the armpits. Just lubricate them pits and all.

Sweating also reduce baths with additives:

baking soda (3 tablespoons per bath) 6% vinegar (200 ml bath) with herbal infusions from oak bark, oregano, thyme, mint, St. John's wort. To prepare this infusion, 2 tbsp. tablespoons herb pour a liter of cold water, bring to a boil, keep on heat for 30 minutes, insist hour, strain and add to bath. And to get rid of unpleasant smell of sweat will help you herbal deodorant:

  • 100 ml Apple cider vinegar
  • 100 ml of distilled or boiled water
  • 3 tablespoons dried herbs or flower petals for choosing
  • 85 ml of rose water.
1. Apple cider vinegar and water heat in a saucepan.

2. In a fireproof bowl, put the herbs or flowers and fill them with the heated liquid. Leave for 15-20 minutes.

3. Strain the liquid into the bottle, then add the rose water. Shake it to be mixed. Store in a cool dry place. Deodorant is ready in a few days. From time to time change the combination, to ensure that bacteria have not developed immunity to deodorant.
The product yield of 300 ml

Well and, of course, you should try to eat healthier is not to eat meat, since it most strongly loads our body and makes it more and more to get rid of introduced toxins; as well as preservatives and chemicals that plague modern industry.
After purging (e.g., fasting) body also clears and the odors emitted by the body become much less unpleasant.

To be dry does not need to go with a towel and dry off, and just take the umbrella. But to be healthy don't need to stuff yourself with pills and chemo, but just right and to live harmoniously, to live in love and kindness, to eat and time to sleep.
