Nobody can’t imagine walking out the house without putting on deodorant. But scientist discovered that not only is deodorant unnecessary for many of us, the use of deodorants and antiperspirants can even be dangerous to our health.
Whole our life we thought that deodorants and antiperspirants are the same product but they are not. Deodorants are used to kill odor-producing bacteria. Antiperspirants block sweat glands to keep you from sweating.
Before the start of the 20th century, no one used deodorant. Nobody cared about body odor. The first deodorant ever produced was in 1888, and the first antiperspirant was produced in 1903, only a few people used it.
Advertisers, convinced the public they needed deodorant and antiperspirant to be confident around people. At the beginning deodorants were created for the women. Only in 1935 the first deodorant was released for men. advertisers convinced the whole world that using deodorants is very importance of using deodorant.
Why we smell?
The bacteria that lives under our armpits breaks down amino acids, that found in your sweat and turns them into substances that have a very distinct odor. That’s why we smell.But some researchers found out that not everyone produced the bacteria that causes to underarm odor. Anyway, those who don’t have smelly armpits still use deodorant and antiperspirant.
Scientists discovered that there is a particular gene that determined whether people produced wet or dry earwax. People who produce dry earwax lack a chemical in their armpits that causes underarm odor. This gene determines who produces underarm odor.
Are deodorants dangerous?
Deodorants and antiperspirants contain toxic chemicals that can lead to serious health deceases. Every time we spray it under armpits, our skin absorbs the chemicals. In fact, this is even more dangerous than if you ingested them orally. When you eat something, it’s broken down by your liver and digestive system. But when you put something on your skin, there are it centers straight to your bloodstream.
We really should pay attention to what we put on our skin. Never listen to the advertisers, their job is to sell and make money. They don’t care about your health.
Some deodorants contain parabens, which are used as preservatives. These preservatives help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria, they also mimic estrogen in our body, and extra estrogen can lead to very dangerous deceases. Aluminum compounds, which are used in many antiperspirants to block the sweat, also mimic estrogen.
The bacteria killed off by deodorants and antiperspirants allow bacteria to produce even more odor. They mess with the micro organisms that lives in our body, which are beneficial for our health. Some scientists say that stopping the use of antiperspirants can lessen the smell.
Some deodorant use aluminium, which is dangerous for our health. To know if your deodorant has aluminum, take a look at your clothes. Aluminum always causes yellow stains on your clothes.
Antiperspirants use antimicrobial agents to block your sweat glands. These antiperspirants affect the bacterial balance in your armpits. Using them constantly, can create an even greater odor-inducing sweat problem.
If we use deodorants or antiperspirants we don’t let flash toxins out of our body. This is the way the body cleanses. When we run, exercise , clean, when we move a lot we sweat, we need to sweat, in order to let all unnecessary bacteria and toxins out.
From this day, think twice before buying deodorant or antiperspirant. Think about your body and your health, the same way you think about what you eat. Nourish your body, don’t let it suffer. Don’t use these products daily, just because everyone uses. Better take a shower before going somewhere. And you won’t be worried about your health.Follow me on Facebook
