Buy a deodorant instead of an antiperspirant.

As others have said it is the aluminum. I avoid any deodorant/antiperspirant with aluminum and don't cook with it. One of the many things I avoid putting into my body if I can help it.

I make my own deodorant, shampoo, rinse, lotion and lip balm. They are easy and quick to make and work very well. I also make my own laundry and dishwasher detergent. They cost pennies and work as well or better than commercial.

Is aluminum foil just as bad? I use that to line my broiling & baking pans.

Suuuuure. Now you know why they have all those strange warnings on products. Unfortunately, if they had to list warnngs against every way someone could misuse the product, the packaging would have to be the size of a refrigerator box. In the end, nobody is going to win but the lawyers.

what are you trying to say? Why does what I said warrant a "wow"? At least my post was on topic and contributing to the thread, you're just chiming in to scoff at me. If you don't have something nice or helpful to say keep it to yourself

I haven't read anywhere that it is as bad. I suspect it is because you aren't applying the heat directly to the surface.
