Do Antiperspirant Deodorants Promote Breast Cancer? This question has been debated in the scientific community for years. A new study, published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, says the aluminum salts in deodorants are likely harmful. Aluminum in deodorants dries out the skin and prevents the user from sweating.
A group of researchers from the Oncology and Hematology Center and the University of Oxford exposed hamster cells – including mammary gland cells – to aluminum salts in the test tube. Result: the metal not only penetrates cells, but also makes the gnome unstable; a warning sign of cancer, Le Monde writes.
“The study shows that aluminum alters the DNA of cells with methods equivalent to those of recognized carcinogens, thus confirming its carcinogenic potential,” confirms the Fondation des Grangettes in a press release.
Does this mean that aluminum deodorant will give you breast cancer? New. But it does mean that it could well be that proof will be provided later. So it is wise to be careful.Bron (nen): The world
