Cancer, Drysol, And Your Armpits

You’re out shopping and see Drysol on the shelves. You consider buying the product because your friend has told you so much about it. You haven’t. Take a close look at the product – do you know for a fact that it’s risk-free to use?

Dismiss the question all you want, but that does not change the fact that there are those who worry about it. In fact, there is a raging debate over the likelihood that Drysol may cause cancer. Studies have shown that Drysol and other perspirants like it contain chemicals that affect hormones, which then stimulates malignant cells. In particular, a number of studies indicate that breast cancer may be tied to the usage of underarm deodorants.

These days, you can find large amounts of information on the connection between cancer and genetic predispositions. While there may not be gene tests available yet, you should be very careful about using Drysol, especially if a family member has had breast cancer. Why? It’s simple really – cancer tends to appear in families. I don’t mean to scare you, but family history is always a good gauge of whether you will develop cancer or not later in life.

Without a question, manufacturers of certain chemicals have been fighting to prove that their products pose no danger to consumers. Companies that produce aluminum chloride are one of them. But you cannot hide as major an issue as toxicity from consumers. What this tells you is that you should never rely on what marketing pitches tell you about Drysol.

Sometimes, it seems like every product under the sun can cause cancer However, do not dismiss the connection out of hand because it may very well be true. As may be expected, manufacturers of Drysol and other potentially harmful products would prefer you think that all these warnings are just media sensation. But would you really put yourself at risk, testing the product on yourself? By that time, you may not even remember that you used Drysol at some time in the past, let alone have the mental wherewithal to seek damages for your condition.

Cancer is a terrible thing to deal with; but as early as now, you can take steps to avoid it. A great way to do this is by avoiding anything thay can harm your DNA and your cell makeup. Avoid using Drysol as much as possible. It’s not far off that one of these days, newer research just may single out deodorants like Drysol as cancer-causing so be very wary, be very careful, and be very watchful for natural alternatives you can try, instead of Drysol.
