Im sure there are folks here that will recognize this...

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.

External source:

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. [4] 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.[5] 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.[7] 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 [8], 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

Scary yet?

It has been well established that the accumulation of aluminum in the brain can cause neurological disorders [8][5][11][12][13][14][15]. To prevent aluminum accumulation, reduced use of aluminum is of crucial importance. Awareness of aluminum is the primary factor in preventing aluminum induced toxicity.[16]

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%. [8]

*rocks back and forth in the corner*

*Its ok...... everything is ok.....the government doesn't want to make everyone a living zombie.....everything is peachy.....just dont sweat it.....literally don't sweat it because you cant apply antiperspirant......weaps softly for millions of people unaware that aluminum is nuerotoxin.......*

Woah, never heard of any of that before. Great thread!

Do you happen to know if the aluminium is used in all anti perspirants? Cause I don't really want to be going through the day wreaking of BO. Lol, does the same go for spray ons?
Anyway, starred and flagged.

I do ! Great thread, S and F’d.

That’s why I don’t use antiperspirants and stick with deodorant.

A chiropractor clued me in years ago – told me that when autopsying Alzheimer’s suffers they found a granular material on the surface of the brain where it shouldn’t have been and it was linked to aluminum deposits.

They are used in antiperspirants, just look at your label to see if they included this wonderful ingredient. I'm sure deodorants are using fragrances instead of stopping sweat by clogging the pores. So deodorants are probably safe, just read your label.

Thanks for the reply!

Thats insane!

Could we get your chiropractor to chime in?


That would be cool though.

This is a very serious issue!

And get this... we women types shave under our arms and they spread this stuff in the open pores!!!! My lymph glands were swelling there... and my Dr. knew exactly why. After about 3 months of getting away from the AZT stuff... I was fine... as far as I know that is. lol

This stuff should be illegal.

Ah, ok well thanks for the info!

I wonder what else is being used in our everyday products that turns us all into mindless zombies. Hmm.
It seems like nothing is safe anymore. I mean waters even fluoridated in some areas and now they want it up in Scotland!

I just can't help but wonder why this information isn't spread to the masses.

It's nothing you ever really hear about on the news. IMO there should be a lot more protests or even an authority figure letting the information out. If they had the evidence to back it up they couldn't exactly get ridiculed.

Here is more information!

Seymour G. Epstein1 (1) Aluminum Association, 900 19th St., NW, 20006 Washington, DC, USA Abstract Aluminum is the third most abundant element in nature, accounting for nearly 8% of the Earth's crust. Because of its chemical activity, aluminum is not found naturally in its ldquofreerdquo, or metallic, state. However, in its ionic or combined forms, aluminum is a truly ubiquitous element. Because of the widespread use of metallic aluminum in cooking and packaging applications, the Aluminum Association has funded critical reviews of the world's literature on the health effects of aluminum and aluminum compounds for the past 30 years. More recently, an extensive research and literature surveillance effort was developed to provide information on the neurological implications of aluminum, dietary intakes and body balance, and analytical capabilities. Based on these efforts the following conclusions can presently be drawn: (1) the cause (or causes) of Alzheimer's disease is not known; (2) the biological significance of aluminum found in the brain is not understood; (3) aluminum is poorly absorbed by the body; and (4) the normal ingestion of aluminum from food and water should have no adverse effects on human health.

So aluminum is a naturally occurring in its ionic state, but aluminum is not found naturally in its ldquofreerdquo, or metallic state.

In other words, we have to make the devastating stuff!

Thanks for your personal account!

Your absolutely correct!

This should be outlawed!

There is a very well studied syndrome called 'dialysis dementia'. Brought on by improper water treatment. Dialysis pts are exposed to huge amounts of water in the process of cleansing the blood. If aluminum is not effectively filtered, dementia will follow.

I remember when I used anti-perspirants. At that time I noticed that I also used to get skin tags.
I stopped using anti-perspirants years ago and instead use a deodorant if anything, and the skin tags stopped happening.

Of course, anything that causes growths on my skin I will avoid.

Thats the second personal experience that involved using antiperspirants!

Im glad you got that cleared up..

This is getting more and more disturbing as more people post!

Thanks for the intelligent replies people

Excellent thread. It's the very reason why we went back to cast iron (besides the fact that cast iron ROCKS) and tossed the aluminum cookware, and the reason that we use deoderants rather than antiperspriants. I never understood that anyway....... why, if your body needed to perspire, would a person try to STOP it? Always seemed to me akin to a person wanting to delay an.... ummmmm...... morning ablution.

Remembering also the tie-in theorized between altzheimers and aluminum. Aluminum, plastics, epoxies, cupric materials, they all have a place. Other than the cupric materials, we shouldn't be ingesting them, and even at that, only CERTAIN cupric materials...... i.e. water in copper piping.

p.s. For some reason, I thought the active ingredient in antiperspriants was aluminum chlorhydrate???? Compound you listed is significantly different. Interesting. Maybe.

p.p.s.s. and now I'm remembering a study that hypothesized a correlation between antiperspirants and breast cancer.

[edit to add p.s.]

Where are all the skeptics???

I havent heard a peep from anyone trying to disprove this!

What the heck is going on here?

I thought this was ATS

Carry on

I've never liked using antiperspirants, blocking sweat glands just seems unnatural and probably isn't good for you. The liquid antiperspirants always gave me nasty rashes too. Deodorant all the way.

Had my family doctor warn me about aluminum back in 2002. She said it causes CJD like symptoms in some people and that it really messed with your lymph system.

posted on Jul, 21 2008 @ 09:04 PM
But my beer comes in cans!!!

I found that when I stopped using antipersperants, I actually started to perspire less after a while. I don't use deodorant either anymore. I guess I just don't smell all that bad. Either that, or I've just discovered why people tend to stay at least 5 feet away from me..

What is CJD?

Im sure its bad

Yet further evidence to damn aluminum

I cannot believe all the replies of personal experience! This is scary stuff!

Crutchfield Jacobs disease. A sorta madcow like disease where your brain gets turned into a swiss cheese.

One guy described the onset of symptoms for him to be like this.

One day he woke up and realized he couldn't do multiplication or division. he spent the whole day trying to figue out why. the next day he woke up and found that he had a hard time remembering how to do simple addition and subtraction.

Eventually he had a hard time putting together sentences and it went down hill from there.
