Researchers are reporting a potential link between breast cancer and use of anti-perspirants/deodorants. Doctors writing in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry say that aluminum in the products, which some say can be absorbed through the skin, may mimic estrogen, which is "known to be involved in the development and progression of breast cancer," reports the Telegraph.

Everyone in my family sweats like crazy. My sweat doesn't necessarily smell too bad (my brother is another story entirely) but my pits get really wet in the summer. Both cancer and dementia run in my family. Additionally, I've had one ovary removed which, we've recently learned here on Jezebel, further increases chances of developing dementia. I'm fucked.
I've tried every alternatie to deo, but nothing works. So, I make a point to consume massive amounts of blueberries and pomegranate. They are though to help prevent dementia. In fact, blueberries are the only thing thought to reverse dementia. Maybe its the partiuclar anti-oxidants, I forget. Anyway, eat lots of blueberries, ladies!!!
