Well unless you are living on a desert island without internet there is a good chance you will have seen reports in the news and online linking antiperspirant and the aluminium salts they contain and Cancer.
The main difference between deodorant and antiperspirant is the mechanism. What causes body odour is bacteria breaking down the sweat in your armpit and being warm and dark it's the perfect conditions for bacteria to thrive. Deodorant either masks, neutralises the odour or may have anti bacterial properties which keep the bacteria at bay.
Antiperspirant cuts the problem off at source. No sweat no smell. The key to this are the molecules of the aluminium salts are absorbed into the cells surrounding the sweat glands taking water with them. The water causes the glands to swell forcing closed the sweat duct. After a while the concentration of water is the same on both sides of the cell and the water is released.
So your body is absorbing aluminium to stop it doing something it is designed to do by nature.
The principle concern and the links with Cancer are the long term exposure effects as your body finds it difficult to remove aluminium from the body and over time it piles up in the body and it is this accumulation which has been linked to a number of issues including Cancer and Alzheimers.

Keeping your odour in check whenever and wherever the hills, waves, wheels, and woods collide.
