Breast Cancer concerns deodorant users

The fight to find the cure for breast cancer is one that is both important and ongoing. With millions of dollars a year being generated to foundations that work to find a cure, the studies conducted on breast cancer are endless. While results from these studies are vital for everyone to know, the extensive research behind breast cancer interests deodorant users in a big way.

The aluminum present in conventional deodorants and antiperspirants has been found to cause lingering health issues in some users. While no research has provided a definite answer as to whether or not aluminum-based deodorants can lead to breast cancer, studies have linked the effects of aluminum to cancerous activities in the body.

A study conducted in 2009 by the journal The Breast Cancer Research hypothesized a link between breast cancer and the application of underarm cosmetics. During their study, The Breast Cancer Research Journal speculated the connection between most deodorants and breast cancer stems from the oestrogenic and/or genotoxic properties that are found in deodorants.

Other studies have suggested that the aluminum used in deodorants seeps into the blood stream or accumulates in breast tissue. According to the research, this exposure to aluminum alters the effects of estrogen in the body, which simulates the growth of cancerous breast cells.

Whether or not conventional deodorants containing chemicals such as aluminum actually lead to breast cancer is unknown. It is, however, important to mention that these products are applied daily, and if the link between deodorants and breast cancer is confirmed, the exposure to the chemicals will have already been irreversible.

Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products, such as the Blue Twist-Up Stick with Aloe Vera, provide deodorant users with an alternative to the potentially harmful effects of aluminum-based deodorants. While products such as the twist-up stick are highly recommended by dermatologists and allergists, they are also recommended by oncologists. This recommendation stems from the lack of harmful aluminum and parabens in our products, and the assurance that the chemicals found in conventional deodorants are not used within our company.

TCCD supplies doctors and cancer treatment centers with products for patients suffering from the effects of cancer treatment, including breast cancer. The all-natural and soothing components of Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products allows patients undergoing intense cancer treatment relief from the irritation of chemical-based deodorants.

The extremely sensitive process of cancer treatment can lead to allergic reactions. These reactions are partly caused by unnatural chemicals in a wide range of products. Our Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products are made of mineral salts that are pure and fragrance-free. This natural substitute for conventional deodorants results in a gentle blend that counteracts the hypersensitivity experienced by some cancer patients.
