After reading the Anti-Cancer diet, I took a walk down the deodorant aisle at Walmart to find one that does not contain aluminum. How many did I find?
Actually, the store brands don't just contain aluminum, it is the one and only ingredient listed on the package. To be exact, they read either aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium.
Aluminum is a toxic metal.
A toxic metal we roll, rub and spray on our freshly shaved armpits every single day.
Our female shaving routine literally primes our armpits for absorption of this toxin, the area of our bodies that just so happen to house the lymph nodes for our breasts.
- In 1993, the World Health Organization said, "There is a
suspected link between Alzheimer's disease and the toxicity of
- The Agency for Toxic Substances and &
Disease Registry reports that "Exposure to high levels of aluminum may

Why is this product on the shelf? Because it's America, and no one gives a damn. Collect the dollars, and keep your mouth shut.
If you are like me, you are going to RUN out to buy an alternative, but you will have to hunt for it. Here is what appears to be our options;
- Deodorant stones: never heard of these until I sat down to write this post. Has anyone used these?
- Natural deodorants: I found Burt's Bee's has an herbal based option and this crystal version appears popular. Again, does anyone have advice to lend on here?
