I'm a machinist and I hate to think about the amount I've ingested over 30 yrs but that may explain alot.Anti perspirant has aluminum in it. It is what plugs up the pores so you do not sweat. I only use the regular speed stick deodorant now. Yeah I sweat a little more but there are conflicting studies that say aluminum can cause Alzheimer's and breast cancer. Some say no, but remember when cigarette companies said they did not cause cancer and had studies to back it up.
