Crystal Deodorant Sticks not automatically Aluminum Free

I switched to a crystal deodorant stick years ago trying to avoid aluminum, because the science was showing that it contributes to Alzheimer's incidence. Now we know that aluminum may also affect estrogen balance. And it turns out that my crystal deodorant may contain aluminum. Better make sure that you check your deodorant for aluminum, and switch if yours is based on "alum" or: potassium aluminunum sulfate".

Misguided: McCain's Attempt to Regulate Supplements

Alert from the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians
**McCain/Dorgan Legislation Threatens Access to Supplements**
Contact Your Senator Today! Go here to send an email.

The fact of the matter: in the US we have good laws to insure safety, quality and consistency in our supplement supply, but the FDA has not funded or enforced those laws. Rather than passing new laws that limit consumer options, we need to enforce the laws we have on the books.
