You won't see me coming....
These fragrant folk don't produce smelly B.O (body odour) due to a genetic defect, researchers say.
Despite this nearly eight out of 10 of them still wear deodorant because it is seen as the 'cultural norm'.
Advertisers and manufacturers have long been rolling in it....and simply exploit 'Yuh gonna stink or buy?'Chemicals which simply mask others can give rise to equally offensive odours. But the real culprits are bacteria - and there are a number of daily precautions which can be taken to avoid the smelly consequences of massive cultures. Continuance with a deodorant still permits unwelcome guests to misuse your armpits as incubators and sheltered housing, Julia.
MTG makes a point but is too diplomatic to mention that for many males their deodorants reduce the sperm counts to less than either their age or their IQ. More problematical is that certain anti-bacterials mess up medications or cause anaphylaxis.
@ DemetriusChemicals in many cosmetics have adverse health effects and what you describe is based on animal tests at extremely high doses. The suspect endocrine disrupters are almost ubiquitous....and the long term health effects are yet to be properly researched.
My GP instructed me not to use deodorants.
"But the real culprits are bacteria.." Yes, but a wash inspection before everyone boards a train is a little impractical.."...for many males their deodorants reduce the sperm counts to less than either their age or their IQ." Looking at some of the stinkier specimens, that can only be a blessing!
