It is important for women to constantly upgrade their knowledge, but also share their knowledge with their female friends.
Using antiperspirants is something that people do on a daily basis and they are doing this without much thinking. However, they will probably think twice before using some of the products that contain aluminum because antiperspirants with traces of aluminum in them can increase the risk of breast cancer.
The basic purpose of antiperspirants is to stop the appearance of sweat. They do this by closing or blocking the pores and some of them use aluminum to improve the effects. Although this procedure guarantees avoiding bad smell and odor, at the same it stops one significant way for getting rid of the toxins from the body.
According to the recent studies related to this subject, there is a link between frequent use of antiperspirants and breast cancer. The threat is even higher if the antiperspirant is used right after the shaving is finished.
In the past people believed that antiperspirants are much more dangerous than deodorants. However, according to some researches there is a correlation between parabens and breast cancer too. These substances are part of most deodorants. The increased presence of parabens can be seen in the breast issue of every woman in a late-stage breast cancer.
In the meantime, we will recommend this article which describes the extraordinary story and results achieved by Tamara St. John in the treatment of her breast cancer, using the Budwig Protocol, Vitamin B17 and other natural medicines.
Can Bras Increase the Risk of Breast Cancer?
Many researchers and doctors confirm that regular wearing of tight bras can affect lymph drainage in a negative way (blocking the drainage) which certainly increases the chances of developing breast cancer since the system won’t be able to detoxify itself in the best way. If the lymph drainage is not working properly, certain metals including aluminum will build up in the system.
Many scientific studies have also confirmed that there is a relation between wearing tight bras and breast cancer. The most convincing one was the study conducted by Soma Grismaijer and Sydney Singer, medical anthropologists who wrote the book Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras. The extensive study that involved more than 4.000 women has confirmed that women who are not wearing bra on a regular basis have lower risk of developing breast cancer.
These are some of the results they got through this study:
-Women who are wearing bras occasionally or never have a 1:168 chance of developing breast cancer.
-Women who are wearing bras less than 12 hour each day have a 1:52 risk.
-Women who are wearing brass more than 12 hours, but less than 24 hours per day have 1:7 chance.
-Women who are wearing bras 24 hours a day have a 3:4 chance of getting breast cancer.
If we look at these numbers closely, we will realize that women who never wear bras compared to those who wear bras all the time have 125 times less chance to get breast cancer. As a comparison, the connection between smoking and cancer is three times lesser, compared to this connection.
Of course, there is more than one risk factor for developing breast cancer and these factors were not taken into account in this study. However, few other studies that have included other factors have provided similar results.
Few years ago, a team of Japanese researchers and scientists have come up with an interesting research that has confirmed the link between regular wearing of bras and lowering the levels of melatonin (in some cases up to 60%). Melatonin is a hormone that affects the sleep cycles. It is also plays a significant role in our body’s anti-cancer activities.
