Is aluminum in antiperspirants and deodorants dangerous?

What happens to a person in contact with aluminum. Some research suggests that aluminum-based compounds, which are applied frequently and left on the skin near the breast, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects. Because estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, some scientists have suggested that the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may contribute to the development of breast cancer.

My Dearest Stinky:


The entire "aluminum causes ________ disease" is a hoax. The story stems from an Urban Legend that Rudolph Valentino (!) died at the age of 31 (true) from eating out of an aluminum pan (false). Consider: if aluminum were truly toxic, how many people would have Alzheimer's, breast cancer et. al. by now considering deodorant/antiperspirant, which contains aluminum, is used over 100,000,000 times/day by Americans not to mention some foreigners? Plus aluminum cans, plus aluminum trays, etc. All humans' exposure to aluminum is on the order of perhaps one billion times per day, yet the rate of these catastrophic diseases provides no causation or even correlation for that matter.

For more reading, check out Snopes.com and type in "aluminum toxicity."

Just had a neighbor get off of antidepressants, it seems it takes about a year for a person’s brain chemistry to return to normal.


Right now that neighbor of mine is going through very high highs, and very low lows, and that's being off the antidepressants.


I was thinking of getting on them cause my family member who is still terminal is doing well, but driving me out of my mind.


But after what my neighbor told me!!1 I think that I am better off just roughing it.

Good Afternoon


I need to ask if using a under arm aluminium will effect a persons glands under the arm

The reason why I am asking is that for a few years I am using a product but found that

under my arms and one breast, the glands are sore and swollen.

I went to Physio but nothing is working


thanking you
