While using antiperspirant deodorant:
How does the antiperspirant work?
-It clogs sweat ducts with aluminum
Excessive aluminum concentrations
-estrogen like effects that stimulate breast
cancer cell growth.
-cell membranes more fluid.
=can be affected by heat absorption.
-so darker races sweat more due to
light attraction by pigmentation.
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
A safe consumption of aluminum:
Most of it is removed by the kidneys.
Any higher consumption can lead to
many other symptons.
=Regulates the skin flora, functions as a
Any substance absorbed needs to be
-Ex. Nicotine from cigarettes.
To find and avoid a probable cause of
This may cause breast cancer because:
-Toxins from sweat mutate lymphatic
nodules from the nearby area.
• Do antiperspirant deodorants stimulate the
growth of breast cancer cells?
• Do they cause harm to any other part of the
• What is the quantity of aluminum being
absorbed by the users?
Antiperspirant deodorant causes:
-trap toxins in the body
-Aluminum concentrations can further
harm the human body.
-Is linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
The more a person sweats while using
the antiperspirant deodorant the more
probability for additional health
-Survey a population of 300 people.
=Find out those who have used
antiperspirant deodorant for more than a
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.
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.
Compare the levels of aluminum between
control and experimental, the normal
level of aluminum in blood, race and
amount of exercise.
