Long term effects of antiperspirant deodorant1

  1. 1. RISE program Research proposal Francisco J Fuster
  2. 2.  While using antiperspirant deodorant: -No smell -No sweat  How does the antiperspirant work? -It clogs sweat ducts with aluminum compounds.
  3. 3.  Excessive aluminum concentrations cause: -estrogen like effects that stimulate breast cancer cell growth. -cell membranes more fluid.
  4. 4.  Sweat Regulates: Body Temperature =can be affected by heat absorption. -so darker races sweat more due to light attraction by pigmentation.
  5. 5.  High aluminum concentrations: -Make cell membranes more fluid. Like the disease Alzheimer’s which is why this is linked to the disease.  Experiments with aluminum in blood: -prove that it causes fluidity in cell membrane
  6. 6. A safe consumption of aluminum: -<5 μg/kg/day.  Most of it is removed by the kidneys.  Any higher consumption can lead to many other symptons.
  7. 7.  Sweat Toxins: Dermcidin =Regulates the skin flora, functions as a natural antibiotic. Any substance absorbed needs to be released. -Ex. Nicotine from cigarettes.
  8. 8.  To find and avoid a probable cause of breast cancer.  This may cause breast cancer because: -Toxins from sweat mutate lymphatic nodules from the nearby area.
  9. 9. • Do antiperspirant deodorants stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells? • Do they cause harm to any other part of the human body? • What is the quantity of aluminum being absorbed by the users?
  10. 10. Antiperspirant deodorant causes: -Breast cancer -trap toxins in the body -Aluminum concentrations can further harm the human body. -Is linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
  11. 11.  The more a person sweats while using the antiperspirant deodorant the more probability for additional health problems.
  12. 12.  Primarily: -Survey a population of 300 people. =Find out those who have used antiperspirant deodorant for more than a year. This would take convincing those who use the antiperspirant deodorant to volunteer for an serum aluminum test which indicates the level of aluminum in blood.
  13. 13.  Volunteers will be notified of their rights.  At least 50 control and 50 experimental volunteers will be needed.  Ask for history of cancer in family.  Exercise is questioned.  Race.  Compare the levels of aluminum between control and experimental, the normal level of aluminum in blood, race and amount of exercise.
