The truth, as ever about something as serious and potentially life threatening as breast cancer caused by or as a result of, constant deodorant usage is mired in the mists of science and finance.
There’s a pretty good chance that the truth will rear its head sometime in the future, but until then there can only be speculation. And speculation is most definitely a two way street!
If you’re into conspiracy theories, then it becomes easier to believe that there really is a link between breast cancer and the constant and regular usage of deodorants, and that there is cover-up about it instigated by the powers that be, whoever that is.
On the other end of the spectrum, there is the widely held belief that science is infallible and that if science hasn’t found it yet, then it can’t be true. Therefore, going along those lines, there is no convincing and palpable link between breast cancer and deodorants.
I personally prefer to sit back and watch the developments unfold. Obviously somebody has to be right, or both sides have to be partially correct. Until such time as any result can be verified as being the truth, I prefer to err on the side of caution.
Science could be right and there could be absolutely no connection between the two, but then again so could the conspiracy theorists be right, and deodorants could be one of the leading causes of breast cancer (and other diseases too!).
In which case, if I had consciously ignored the warnings which were staring me in the face, isn’t possible that I would by that time be saddled with who knows what type of life threatening illness I could have?
The best thing to do in this case is to be aware of the facts as they stand. Take as many precautions as you can, but live your life as well. It’s no use your avoiding deodorants and other such “bad” things only to live a hermit-like existence!
So what about breast cancer and deodorants then? Well, as I said earlier, the jury is still out on that one, but we do have some of the facts at hand to make up our own minds, and our own decisions.
There is no conclusive link between breast cancer and deodorants.
It has been proven to cause lung cancer, there is a warning on the front of each packet of cigarettes, and yet there are still millions, even billions of people in the world today who smoke at least one or two cigarettes a day, if not a pack.
So the whole issue on the conclusiveness of the link between breast cancer and deodorants is moot.
You will naturally enough and in due course make up your own mind, and not because someone pressures you to do so, but because you interpret the facts you’re given in a certain way. This is natural, and this is human nature.
What you need to do now, is to decide whether you want to continue using chemical based antiperspirants and deodorants, or whether you want to try natural deodorants and methods for preventing or dealing with sweat.
But since you’re reading this book which is all about natural deodorants and other natural sweat and odor prevention methods, it can be safely assumed that you’re headed in that direction anyway.
On my part, I have to say, (and just in case you haven’t already guessed!), that I prefer to use more natural methods.
This is not only because I started getting adverse reactions to any deodorants and antiperspirants that I used, but also because with age, I am becoming more discriminate about what I put in and on my body.
