I was informed by the Moderator of Women’s workcom. that one of her
rep. had been diagnosed with breast cancer and she is concerned that
we should inform our friends about this.

Ladies – some awareness!!! Gentleman – pass on to the ladies in your
life, to all the women you know

Some time ago, I attended a Breast Cancer Awareness seminar put on by
Terry & A period. I asked why the most common area for Breast Cancer
was near the armpit.

My question could not be answered at that time. This e-mail was just
sent to me, and I find it interesting that my question has been
answered.

I challenge you all to rethink your every day use of a product that
could ultimately lead to a terminal illness.

As of today, I will change my use. A friend forwarded this to me. I
showed it to a friend going through chemotherapy and she said she
learned this fact in a support group recently.

The leading cause of breast cancer is the use of anti-perspirant.

What? A concentration of toxins and leads to cell mutations,a.k.a.CANCER

Yes, ANTI-PERSPIRANT. Most of the products out there are an
anti-perspirant /deodorant combination, so go home and check.
Deodorant is fine, anti-perspirant is not.

Here’s why:- The human body has a few areas that it uses to purge
toxins; behind the knees , behind the ears, groin area, and armpits.
The toxins are purged in the form of perspiration. Anti-perspirant ,
as the name clearly indicates, prevents you from perspiring, thereby
inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below the armpits.

These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body
deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot sweat
them out. Nearly all breast cancer tumors occur in the upper outside
quadrant of the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes
are located.

Additionally, men are less likely (but not completely exempt) to
develop breast cancer prompted by anti- perspirant usage because most
of the anti-perspirant product is caught in their hair and is not
directly applied to the skin.

Women who apply anti-perspirant right after shaving increase the risk
further because shaving causes almost imperceptible nicks in the skin
which give the chemicals entrance into the body from the armpit area.

PLEASE pass this along to anyone you care about.

Breast cancer is becoming frighteningly common. This awareness may save
lives.
