I *love* the Dollar Store. I'm a sucker for their Halloween decor and...deodorant. Dollar Store deodorant smells like the kind I started using in 7th grade. Ever since I was a 13 year old brace-face, I've slathered my pits with copious amounts of aluminum, every day, automatically. Who knows what effect all that aluminum has now, and how it will affect us in the future? Having worked in different types of research including clinical trials, I know how flawed, and flat out fake, studies can be. Like Puff Daddy said back in '97, It's All About the Benjamins, Baby.
So unless a study appears solidly reliable and valid in my own research on their research, I don't jump to apply findings to my life. And...I happen to like cheap deodorant. Also too, I strongly believe all the fretting and controlling we do...the psychological stress over how toxic everything is...can harm us even more than the toxic stuff. So I figured I'd take my chances on aluminum-spiked deodorant. But then I found a website that appears to be reputable from the folks at Environmental Working Group. www.ewg.org/skindeep
