An armpit detox is a great effective way to detox your body and may help reduce your risk of breast cancer. Did you know that a lot of clinical studies find a disproportionately high number of female breast cancers originating in the upper outer quadrant of the breast, the area to which underarm cosmetic products are applied? Because breast tissue is mostly adipose, it’s a place where most toxins get stored. Most conventional deodorants and other body products that we use on a daily basis contain aluminum chlorohydrate, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, TEA, DEA, FD&C colors, and quaternium 18, among other toxic chemicals. Some of these chemicals increase the risk of breast cancer by mimicking estrogen. Most breast cancer cases initially develop as hormone-dependent cancer, in which growth and progression of the disease correlates with estrogen levels.
In a 2007 study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, researchers tested breast samples from 17 breast-cancer patients who had undergone mastectomies. The women who used antiperspirants had deposits of aluminum in their outer breast tissue. Concentrations of aluminum were higher in the tissue closest to the underarm than in the central breast.
Parabens also increase the risk of breast cancer by mimicking estrogen, according to some experts. Researchers have found parabens inside autopsied breast tumors. Dr. Darbre comments on the study: “Parabens are used as preservatives in thousands of cosmetic, food, and pharmaceutical products, but this is the first study to show their accumulation in human tissues. It demonstrates that if people are exposed to these chemicals, then the chemicals will accumulate in their bodies.”
You have to understand, sweating is an important function of our body. Sweat contains chemicals that fight diseases. This is why it’s vital to keep the pores under your arms unclogged. Beneath the skin in the armpit is a cluster of lymph nodes that work to remove foreign cells. Chemical-laden products applied to the arm pit prevent this removal of toxins. Fortunately, you can do an armpit detox which can help your body to pull out stored toxins, chemical residue, and unclog your pores.
