Hi Netters
I have received the message below, which would be quite interesting for all
us us, if it was true. I tried to get in touch with the author to get an
original article, but the adress doesn't work. I was wondering if somebody
can verify this issue - or is it just another tell tale story?
Kind regards Andrea

Confirmed and verified message from the Cancer Association. Pass it along
to any  women you know.

A health seminar in the US presented findings that the leading cause  of
breast cancer is the use of anti-perspirant.

What? Yes ANTI-PERSPIRANT. Most of the products out there are an
anti-perspirant/deodorant combination so go home and check your  labels.
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. This causes a high concentration of toxins and leads
to cell mutations; a.k.a. CANCER. Nearly all breast cancer tumor 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 complete 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

PLEASE pass this along to anyone you care about. Breast Cancer is  becoming
frighteningly common. This awareness may save  lives. If you are for
yourself. You will arrive at the same conclusions, I assure you.

Thank you.
