Given all the links to Alzheimer's and the aluminum in deodorant, this doesn't surprise me.

I teach at a college and have not noticed anything. And I notice when I'm in Europe, so it's not that I can't tell the difference.

I believe the aluminum is only present in antiperspirants.

Do you have a link to any peer-reviewed studies linking Alzheimer's to antiperspirants?

Nope, just have heard here and there about elevated levels of aluminum in Alzheimer's patients and the theory that it could come from deodorant/antiperspirant.

I know it's enough of a concern of my daughter that she spends more $ on aluminum free deodorant.

I don't care, I ain't stinking.

There are plenty of deodorants without aluminum. They’re easy to find.
