Breast Cancer – Right underneath your arms….

If any of you know me, you know Iam super serious about Cancer research and prevention.

I received this notice in my e-mail last week and I just wanted to share it.

Whether you take it at face value or not, consider it as nothing more than just information.

You may all have heard things surrounding this connection.

Why breast cancer is usually found near the armpit?

Some time ago, I attended a Breast Cancer Awareness seminar and I asked why the most common area for Breast Cancer was near the armpit.
My question could not be answered at that time.
This e-mail was just sent to me, and I find it interesting that my question has been answered. I challenge you all to rethink your every day use of a product that could ultimately lead to a terminal illness.  As of today, I will change my use.
I showed it to another friend going through chemotherapy & she said learned this fact in a support group recently.
The leading cause of breast cancer is the use of anti-perspirant..
*Yes,*                                   *ANTI-PERSPIRANT*.
Most of the products out there are an anti-perspirant/deodorant combination, so go home and check   Deodorant is fine, anti-perspirant is not!
Here’s why :- The human body has a few areas that it uses to purge toxins ; behind the knees, behind                                  the ears, groin area, and armpits. The toxins are purged in the form of perspiration.
Anti-perspirant, as the name clearly indicates, prevents you from perspiring, thereby inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below the armpits.

These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot sweat them out.
Nearly all breast cancer tumors occur in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes are located.
Additionally, men are less likely (but not completely exempt) to develop breast cancer prompted by anti- perspirant usage   because most of the anti-perspirant product is caught in their hair and is not directly applied to the skin.
Women who apply anti-perspirant right after shaving increase the risk further because shaving causes almost imperceptible nicks in the skin which give the chemicals entrance into the body from the armpit area.

PLEASE pass this along to anyone you care about.

Breast cancer is becoming frighteningly common.

This awareness may save lives.


  1. I’ve heard of this theory for some time now and there might be some truth to it but also take into consideration that women were using anti-perspirant long before cancer re$earch became a big business – complete with promotional swag, pink ribbons and the like.

    Also, people do eventually sweat in their armpits even when wearing anti-perspirant (think about it.) You can only go for so many hours a day until the stuff wears off on your clothing because your body heat melts it down.

    I think it’s debatable.

    • so do I. I appreciate your point Angela, but the threat of Breast Cancer also wasn’t so prevalent and prominent as it is now. The thing with Cancer is that we learn of new threats the longer modern human history develops. So in our generations now, we are just picking up on and seeing the effects of things done by the generations before us. Just as our children will see what long term effects cell phones and computer exposure will have had for us. I’m pretty sure there weren’t near as many complex ingredients in deodorants during the first half of the 20th century, and anti-perspirants probably didn’t come into existence until after the 60’s. Either way, there can’t be anything long term good about rubbing a bunch of chemicals on the thinnest layer of skin on your body. As a man, I’ve shaved under my arms a couple times just to keep things in check, and when I shaved too close, that shirt hurt after putting on deodorant. It made me realize how sensitive of an area that is.
      Only time will tell…
      I wonder how much $ was made off of those LiveStrong bands…


  3. Well says those findings are inconclusive…and we all know how I feel about the government.

    I need to look this up more on my own before I throw away my antiperspirant. I sweat A LOT. I mean Patrick Ewing A LOT. It’s not cute at all.
