Underarm Antiperspirant And Deodorant Use Is Thought Causes Breast Cancer In Females

Hello girls and boys. How you all doing? Mmm…..actually this time I am going  to say , hello girls. Because my today’s post brings some alarmed information for girls.

One of the daily routine works of today’s girls is the use of underarm antiperspirants (a preparation that reduces underarm sweat) and deodorants (a preparation that destroys or masks unpleasant odors) in their under arms followed by frequent underarm shaving. But , actually very, very surprisingly these agents are found to cause breast cancer with this very much frequent use of their’s, as these products are found to contain harmful substances which can be absorbed through the skin or enter the body through nicks caused by shaving. But it is considerable, I think, as so far we  girls have been doing so frequently somewhat really unconsciously, not knowing about the fact that this frequent work of ours can alarm us in this way to get alert about using these mere chemicals in our everyday life. But still there is no strong evidence supporting the results of these researches worrying about that actually these products might be involved in risking breast cancer.

It was found that breast cancer was significantly diagnosed at an earlier age in girls who used underarm antiperspirants and deodorants and shaved their underarms more frequently and in girls who started this underarm hygiene process before 16 years of age than those who started doing so later .

This question of such a risk arose because a high number of females were found to originate their breast cancer in the upper outer quadrants of their breasts where some lymph glands are situated and also contain a greater number of epithelial tissue. These harmful chemicals can be absorbed into the lymph nodes from the underarm skin and get transported to the breast tissue and initiate the development of breast cancer. It is also the area where underarm products are so frequently applied. Also the harmful compounds in these products, aluminum and parabens, are found accumulated in the breast tissues which is again a sign of anticipation towards the frequent use of these products, according to some researchers.

The role of oestrogen in the development and progression of breast cancer is well established. Antiperspirants work by temporarily clogging, closing, or blocking the pores that release sweat under your arms—with the active ingredient being aluminum, which may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects. Because estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, so aluminum containing products are thought to initiate breast cancer and the ability of  oestrogen-mimicking chemicals to also drive the development and growth of breast cancers is seriously taken under concern.
But if you are using a deodorant-only product it is unlikely to contain aluminum but might contain other chemicals that could be a concern, such as parabens, which are used as preservatives in both deodorants and antiperspirants. Not only does this block one of your body's routes for detoxification by releasing toxins via your underarm sweat, but it raises concerns as we do not know where these  chemicals are going once you roll or  spray them on. But still there is no strong evidence based result that the build up of parabens in breast tissues is due to the underarm cosmetic products.
But in - spite of all, still more research is needed to specifically examine whether the use of deodorants or antiperspirants can cause the buildup of parabens and aluminum-based compounds in breast  tissue and to research whether these chemicals can either alter the DNA in some cells or cause other breast cell changes that may lead to the development of breast cancer. Also till now it was unclear that precisely which of these factors — shaving or antiperspirant use, or both is actually is being the cause to give such results that underarm product use followed by under arm shaving gives rise to breast cancer

But all friends, since the somewhat rumor of such kind from our researchers is not yet well proved, the consumers should not get so much panic about the this one but still for safety concerns Consumers can look at the ingredient label to determine if a deodorant or antiperspirant contains parabens. Parabens are usually easy to identify by name, such as methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, or benzylparaben

Also There are many brands of chemical-free, aluminum-free deodorants on the market, and many of these are safe alternatives. "Crystal" deodorant stones, which are a popular natural deodorant alternative often used by health-conscious shoppers looking to avoid aluminum, often claim to be aluminum-free, but some actually contain a different type of compound known as an alum, the most common form being potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminum sulfate.

Potassium Alum or Ammonium Alum are natural mineral salts made up of molecules that are too large to be absorbed by your skin. They form a protective layer on your skin that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. And the better news is that these deodorants are recommended by many cancer treatment centers, as  this may be a better alternative to most antiperspirants and deodorants on the market, also you must  keep a watchful eye out for parabens even in these products.
Some posts in other web sites and blogs have also claimed that frequent underarm shaving and antiperspirant and deodorant use is the leading cause of  breast cancer in young women today, while other blogs and websites claim there is absolutely no link between underarm shaving followed by underarm cosmetic use to develop breast cancer in women.

So, if there really exists such a link then definitely it is going to be declared by the research institutes at the end of their successful researches.

So dear friends, till our next post, which might be on “breast cancer in males”, stay healthy and passionate and keep blogging, and please also share any of your thoughts about any of the topics discussed in our blog.

World's Youngest Surgeon!....Just Incredible!

Youngest Surgeon of The World:The Seven Year-Old Surgeon

Hello, friends.How you all are doing?I hope you all are just doing awesome.But sorry for our late posts, friends.We are going through a tough exam time actually,being the reason behind our late posts..But anyway, after getting through the incredible news of this young boy named, Akrit Jaswal,I just could not help myself  to get off the study table and share this unbelievable incident with you.

So, about, Akrit Jaswal, who has been very reputably famed as the world's youngest physician, in fact as the youngest seven year old surgeon despite ever being attending a medical school.Akrit Jaswal (born April 23, 1993) is an Indian adolescent,a Hindu Rajput of Jaswal clan from Punjab,who gained fame for performing surgery at the age of seven on a 8 year old girl whose fingers were fused together after being burnt.

According to his mother Raksha Kumari Jaswal, Akrit was an early starter, skipped the toddler stage and started walking. He started speaking in his 10th month and was reading Shakespeare at the age of 5 and developed a passion for science and anatomy at an early age. 

Then very interestingly doctors at local hospitals took notice and started allowing him to observe surgeries when he was 6 years old.Inspired by what he saw, Akrit read everything he could on the topic.

When an impoverished family heard about his amazing abilities, they asked if he would operate on their daughter for free. Her surgery was a celebrated success.

After the surgery, Akrit was hailed as a medical genius in India. Neighbors and strangers flocked to him for advice and treatment. At age 11, Akrit was admitted to a Punjab University. He's the youngest student ever to attend an Indian university. That same year, he was also invited to London's famed Imperial College to exchange ideas with scientists on the cutting edge of medical research. 
Akrit says he has millions of medical ideas, but he's currently focused on developing a cure for cancer. "I've developed a concept called oral gene therapy on the basis of my research and my theories", he says, "I'm quite dedicated towards working on this mechanism."However, his work towards a cure for cancer was criticised by British doctors and researchers since they claim his understanding on the topic was vague.
But friends, I think he would make his research success full, after all he is genius borne gifted.

Growing up, Akrit says he used to see cancer patients lying on the side of the road because they couldn't afford treatment or hospitals had no space for them. Now, he wants to use his intellect to ease their suffering. "[I've been] going to hospitals since the age of 6, so I have seen firsthand people suffering from pain," he says. "I get very sad, and so that's the main motive of my passion about medicine, my passion about cancer." 

Currently, Akrit is working toward a bachelor's degree in zoology, botany and chemistry. Someday, he hopes to continue his studies at Harvard University.
He possesses books such as Gray's Anatomy, and textbooks on surgery, anaesthesia, anatomy, physiology, cancer, and others. Akrit claims to have mastered them with his daily habit of studying for an hour.
But, Oh my God friends, for me he is just another Albert Einstien took birth in this world to erase the sufferings of the ill ones.

In his spare time, Akrit enjoys playing and watching cricket.

I am just waiting to get the most updates about any further researches of this young little scientist, and of course share with you all.

So, dear friends, till our next post don't forget to stay healthy and passionate and keep visiting our blog.
