I had never heard of this, or even thought about it until yesterday when a colleague of mine who is pregnant (but doesn't know I am) said she's doesn'y use spray deodorants because of the chemicals. I've tried good old Dr Google but haven't found much information. Has anyone been told spray deodorant, or any kind of deodorant is unsafe? I live in a very hot climate so not using it is not an option but I don't know ???
I have read advice on not using it because of the chemicals, but nothing actually says dont use it. I have started using a roll on as was advised in my pregancy book and that way your not inhaling it. Plus the pollution we breathe in everyday is probably just as dangerous
I am sure I have heard something about avoiding anti-persperants with aluminim in them but I couldn't be sure if they are simply not good for you or if they cause problems to unborn babies or if it was somebody mentioned about it coming through in breast milk.
Is it because they are a spray, and you breathe it in? Hair spray would be the same then.
They arnt generally great for you.
Dr Chris on 'This morning' mentioned that most women get breast cancer in their left breast, and they are starting to think that it is because most women are right handed, therefore tend to spray (whether you know it or not) just a little more under your left arm pit, and are wondering if the two are connected. Does that make sense?
I still use it anyway. Just spray it on, on the landing, then go back in my bedroom, so Im not stood in a cloud of fumes.
