    It is a small study of only 20 women, but something to keep watching.

    "The results help explain why 60 percent of all breast tumors are found in just one-fifth of the breast- the upper-outer quadrant, nearest the underarm," Darbre said.

    "I feel pretty strongly that this is not something that should lead to a great deal of public concern, certainly not at this time," Winer said. It ends up that more research is needed, so far the NIH sees no causal link.

    So far the last NIH study is positive.

    the question is:

    would you rather spend life stinkin to high heaven, or maybe be there a little early?

    There happens to be paraben free deodrants available. Information so that choices can be made.

    I've heard that Anti-Persperant deoderants have aluminum in them, and it does indeed lead to alstheimers.
