Botox in the armpitsDespite antiperspirant's links to cancers, including breast cancer (thanks to smearing aluminum onto your lymph gland-filled armpits), we continue to make the daily choice of clogging our pores with chemicals just for the sake of staying dry.

Because all of our systems are interconnected, stunting the lymph system can also take a toll on the immune system as a whole.
