According to many recent studies, the number of female breast cancers is remarkably high. They all originate in the upper outer quadrant of the breast, the area where underarm cosmetics products are applied. Actually, since this area is mostly adipose, most toxins get stored in the breast tissue.
But, you can reduce breast cancer risk and detoxify your body by an armpit detox.
Usually, at the beginning, the development of breast cancer is as hormone-dependent cancer, and the progression and growth of the disease correspond to estrogen levels.
The conventional deodorants and commercial body products that we use on a regular basis, in their content have many chemicals as triclosan, propylene glycol, parabens, TEA, DEA, FD&C colors, aluminum chlorohydrate and quaternium 18. Some of these chemicals can mimic estrogen, thus increasing the risk of breast cancer.
A study in 2007 was conducted on 17 patients with breast cancer who had undergone mastectomies and was published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry. The results have shown that there were deposits of aluminum in the outer breast tissue at those women who used antiperspirants. Furthermore, there were higher concentrations of aluminum not in the central breast tissue but in the tissue which was closest to the underarm than.
According to some researchers, parabens have the ability to mimic estrogen, thus increasing the risk of breast cancer. Actually, parabens were discovered inside autopsied breast tumors
Dr. Darbre explains that in many pharmaceutical products, cosmetic products and foods, parabens are used as preservatives, but their accumulation in human tissues was shown for the first time. The study shows that the chemicals will be accumulated in our body if we are exposed to these chemicals.
What we all should keep in mind is that sweating is an essential function of our body due to the fact that it contains chemicals which have the ability to fight diseases. It is of great importance to keep the pores under the arms unclogged. A cluster of lymph nodes is beneath the skin in the armpit, which can remove foreign cells.
When applied to the armpit, the chemical products prevent the removal of toxins. You can unclog the pores and eliminate the chemical residue and stored toxins with this armpit detox.
