Deadly aroma

Published: Saturday 04 July 2015

According to medical and environmental scientists, deodorants are toxic and in some caseslethal. This view was established after a recent research which proved that, practicallyall deodorants are harmful to the health of users. Deodorants use chemicals that prevent odour by sealing the pores on the skin, making perspiration impossible. Too much use of deodorants causes skin allergies, besides harming some of our vital organs. Sealing of skin pores puts stress on the lungs and kidneys to eliminate toxins, a function that otherwise would be carried out by the skin.
