Chemical of deodorants linked to Breast Cancer!

You are very much familiar with deodorants since you use them very often. But do you know what kind of chemical used in it? Have you ever thought of what might happen to your body after you use them? According to the latest research conducted in Britain has found some most important chemical that is linked to breast cancer!

The research team was led by Philippa Darbre from the University of Reading in Britain. A chemical used as a preservative in cosmetics like deodorants as well as in food products & pharmaceuticals has been found in samples from 40 women with breast cancer!

You might wonder, what kind of chemical is this research team has found? Parabens are a chemical compound found in everyday toiletry products including moisturisers, make-up, shaving foam, tanning lotions & toothpaste! They're also found in numerous brands of underarm deodorants & are present in processed meat, pies & pastries along with coated nuts & other savoury snacks, this is according to Daily Mail reports.

A number of studies since 1998 have raised concerns about the potential role of these chemicals in breast cancer as they possess oestrogenic properties. Oestrogen plays a major role in the development, growth & progression of breast cancer. 

The team studied tissue samples from 40 women undergoing mastectomies between 2005 & 2008 for first primary breast cancer. A total of 160 samples were collected, four from each woman. The scientists found that 99% of the samples contained at least one paraben & 60% had five. The team found women who did not use deodorants still had measurable parabens in their tissue, suggesting they must enter the breast from other sources. 

Lester Barr, co-author from the University Hospital of South Manchester said, "The intriguing discovery that parabens are present even in women who have never used underarm products raises the question - Where have these chemicals come from?"
