Just got this email from a work buddy:
> Some time ago, I attended a Breast Cancer Awareness seminar. During the
> Q&A period, I asked why the most common (and what seemed to be deadliest)
> area for Breast Cancer was near the arm pit. My question could not be

> This e-mail was just sent to me, and I find it interesting that my

> The leading cause of breast cancer is the use of antiperspirant.
> A Concentration of toxins and leads to cell mutations: a.k.a. CANCER. Yes,

> Deodorant is fine, antiperspirant is not. Here’s why: The human body has

> 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 antiperspirant usage because most of the

> Women who apply antiperspirant 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

> If you are skeptical about these findings, I urge you to do some research

> Thank you.
It had a name and address as a “reference.” Does anybody know if this is truth or just another UL?
Sucks to your assmar.
