HOW TO PREVENT BODY ODOR WITHOUT CHEMICALLY-BASED DEODORANT. BY JAMES UBERTI, TOXIC FREE DIET
THIS NATURAL FRUIT REMEDY removes body odor. Instead of reaching for toxic underarm deodorant that has been linked to breast cancer and many health concerns, reach for LIME instead. Not only is it safe – it’s more effective than any toxic deodorant and its inexpensive and much more effective.
HOW TO APPLY
Simply cut a lime in half and wipe it under your arm pit and then apply the other armpit. Let the lime juice dry before putting your shirt or blouse on it will give the lime juice time to kill bacteria, prevent staining and provide a fresh smell that last all day.
HOW IT WORKS
Sweat itself doesn’t actually smell that bad. What smells bad is the bacteria and fungi that builds up in the armpit area. Lime Juice – a powerful antibacterial substance – kills bacteria and prevents the growth of fungi. In other words, it stops the odor from appearing instead of just masking it with toxic chemical based hormone disrupting fragrance.
WHAT'S IN DEODORANT
Underarm deodorant is loaded with toxic endocrine disrupting chemicals, fillers, dyes and toxic parabens, aluminum, triclosan, phthalates that confuse and mess with your hormones and collects in fat cells. Yes FAT CELLS.. Have arm fat, bat fat, or fatty tissue under your arm pit or chest area? All the chemicals you put on your skin for years could be the culprit. These chemicals are known obesogens and have been directly linked to cancer and many other health issues. Every-day you use underarm deodorant you absorb small amounts of toxic chemicals and ingredients. Below is the top 4 most toxic chemicals in deodorant:
PARABENS: are used as a preservative and shown to interfere with estrogen and other hormones. Because up to 70 percent of breast cancers express the estrogen receptor, there is a concern that parabens may contribute to the development of breast tumors. More shocking is that 99% of all breast cancer tissue had traces of parabens.
ALUMINUM: This is used to coat your armpit with a microscopic metal coating to block the smell. Aluminum is a neurotoxin know to cause many health issue including cancer and dementia. Studies show that toxic metals contribute to brain diseases by producing oxidative stress and aluminum is one of the worst offenders.
TRICLOSAN: Is a chemical that kills bacteria and classified as a pesticide, not only kills bacteria it damages DNA and is also a known endocrine disrupting chemical that has been linked to hearth disease and thyroid dysfunction. Triclosan is also in your toothpaste, hand sanitizer, deodorant and most personal care products.
PHTHALATES: is another endocrine hormone disruptor that has been linked to androgen dysfunction which is the way your body uses testosterone. The greatest concern is it interferes in fetal development in pregnant women and impairs cognitive health of newborns i.e. learning disabilities.
THINK YOUR NOT AFFECTED
Although the government has deemed these toxic chemicals to be safe in small doses "it's the daily constant exposure" and absorption that is the real concern. There is a Japanese saying that says EVEN SPECS OF DUST OVER TIME CREATES A MOUNTAIN daily exposure to toxic chemicals causes unexplained weight gain and disease.
