CANCER NEWS FROM JOHN HOPKINS HOSPITAL
- A friend of mine who has received Chemotherapy and is
now receiving Radiation at Princess Margaret Hospital
for breast cancer phoned me today to tell me what they
have now found about causes of breast cancer. And then
tonight, I got the same information from another
friend in Montreal . The person with the cancer has
been told by the hospital to only use deodorant rather
than an anti-perspirant. The reasons are outlined in
the letter below. Anyway, I thought it was worth
Ladies!! be aware! Gentlemen, pass this on to the
ladies in your life!
Sometime ago, I attended a Breast-Cancer-Awareness
seminar. During the Q&A period, asked why the most
common area for breast cancer was near the armpit.
My question could not be answered at that time. The
leading cause of breast cancer is the use of
anti-perspirant. What? A concentration of toxins
leads to cell mutations, a.k.a. cancer. Yes,
ANTI-PERSPIRANT. Most of the products out there are an
antiperspirant/deodorant combination, so go home and
Deodorant is fine, anti-perspirant is not. Here's why:
The human body has a few areas that it uses to purge
toxins from the body; behind the knees, behind the
ears, the 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. If you are skeptical
about these findings, I urge you to do some research
