Are any of you aware that the majority of doctors in the United States wont use chemotherapy for their personal cancerous tumors ? Even oncologists (cancer docs) know that chemo does nothing to the tumor. This was a major study done, pretty suprising results.
On average, most people take in approximately 30 to 50 milligrams per day of aluminum from food; those using over-the-counter medications such as antacids and buffered aspirins ingest larger amounts, roughly five grams a day. At that level, there is little evidence of harm, most experts say.
The letter claims that inhibiting perspiration causes harmful substances to be trapped in the body where they form cancer. But sweat is mostly electrolytes and water, Gansler says, and sweating is not a significant mechanism for expelling unwanted compounds, more commonly eliminated in urine and feces. "It would be nice if as many people as [those who] forwarded the e-mail about antiperspirants, urged their friends and relatives to get a mammogram every year starting at age 40," he says. "We would have saved a lot more lives."

Most of you wouldn't associate antiperspirant as aNeurotoxin would you?
I made this thread to raise awareness about Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex, also aluminum, and its use in products.

We are continually exposed to aluminum due to its many uses. It is often used in cooking utensils, containers, appliances, and building materials. It is also used in paints and fireworks; to produce glass, rubber, and ceramics; and in consumer products such as antacids, astringents, buffered aspirin, food additives, and antiperspirants.  Another use for aluminum is in water purification, and it can therefore occur in your drinking water.
This gives you a slight idea of how large a scale we use Aluminum pruducts.
We inhale aluminum by breathing and ingest aluminum through our food and water. However, aluminum is poorly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract; roughly 0.1% of the dietary intake is absorbed. Studies have show that high level exposure to aluminum affects the lungs, and causes neurological damage. However, this article will focus on aluminum absorption by the skin through the use of antiperspirants.
Starting to get scary? Here is more.....
a 2001 study showed that aluminum was still present in blood samples 15 days after one application of aluminum to the armpit. Consequently, applying aluminum to the skin is a very effective way to get aluminum in your system, and in your brain.
I wonder what could happen to a person with too much aluminum in their brain?
Aluminum was first recognized as a human neurotoxin in 1886 , before being used as an antiperspirant.
Aluminum as a Neurotoxin: linked to Alzheimer and other neurological diseases....
Post-mortem analysis of Alzheimer’s infected brains has shown increased levels of aluminum compared to people that did not die from Alzheimer’s
It has been well established that the accumulation of aluminum in the brain can cause neurological disorders . To prevent aluminum accumulation, reduced use of aluminum is of crucial importance. Awareness of aluminum is the primary factor in preventing aluminum induced toxicity.
Hence this thread!
Here is the scary part!
When using antiperspirants, one only applies very little aluminum to the skin. However, daily use results in chronic exposure to aluminum. One study has asserted that the use of aluminum based antiperspirants increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 60%. 
Just great!!!!Well,to all the people reading this, it should be listed as the very first ingredient in your anti-perspirant if it has it at all.. i found mine (Degree Absolute Protection) not only has it, but warns it's only for exterior use only, now when added to the armpits, well, especially when wet, or getting wet from perspiring, well, then it travels right into your pores, and especially your lymph nodes, and your armpit, (if you didn't know) is like lymph node central, LOL, and when you put it directly intothem, it spreads throughout your whole body in just a matter of minutes, and get this, your lymph nodes are supposed to be the "waste ducts" of your body to carry toxins out of our bodies, and well, with us adding this directly to them, we are poisoning ourselves badly.. Thanks for the heads up, now I have to search for brands without it and will report if necessary.. Stop using This Stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!Yikes
Antiperspirants contain aluminum will be required to carry a renal dysfunction warning due to risks associated with possible increased absorption of the ingredient, according to the OTC Antiperspirant Drug Products Final Monograph.
FDA "is concerned that people with renal dysfunction may not be aware that the daily use of antiperspirant drug products containing aluminum may put them at a higher risk because of exposure to aluminum in the products," the monograph notes. The rule is scheduled to appear in the June 9 Federal Register.
Assuming a person has normal renal function, "accumulation of aluminum resulting from unusual exposures to antiperspirant drug products (application to the underarms once or twice daily) and subsequent absorption is considered minimal", FDA points out.
