It's because of the Aluminium in it

It's the anti-pesrpirant that does it. The aluminum is difficult to filter when you have impaired kidney function.

I had no idea. Makes me wonder if maybe its not the best stuff to use? I don't have kidney issues but still that seems kind of concerning.

With normally functioning kidneys, it should be fine. I use "normal" deodorant and I've had a transplant. I used Tom's when I was on dialysis.

The body absorbs the aluminium through the skin (from the deoderant) and its the kidneys that clear it out of our bodies. Those with kidney problems/disease, may not be able to clear the aluminium efficiently which could be dangerous. Not all deodorants contain aluminium that's why not all contain the warning and also different deoderants (anti perspirants) contain different levels.

There are tons of places questioning alum in your blood, and what level is safe/toxic. but PP is correct it is the big dif in anti p and deod.

I now avoid the deodorants with aluminum. There are theories that it contributes to breast cancer. There are lots of other choices.

I make my own deodorant using this recipe:

it's easy and cheap and it's safe enough that I could eat it

My mom uses some sort of crystal thing that you wet and rub in armpits. She's not sure it works though.

Yup, also couldn't use deodorant when receiving radiation of the breast - for 7 weeks. Corn starch worked fine for me.

My DD8 just started wearing it, and I bought her an all natural aluminum free one. I got to wondering why I don't care about myself to use it? Now I use the same kind.
