Full Answer

Most deodorants contain aluminum, but according to Med Health, studies have shown that prolonged exposure to aluminum may cause health problems. Aluminum-containing deodorants may cause blockages in the sweat glands and cause toxins to accumulate, which may be distributed to other areas of the body and into organs such as the livers and the kidneys. Aluminum exposure is also known to contribute to certain cancers as well as Alzheimer's disease. Natural deodorants do not have antiperspirant properties. It is for this reason that they are not as popular as mainstream deodorants. However, most consumers do not realize that even though the natural ingredients in aluminum-free deodorants are unable to prevent sweat, they do kill the bacteria that cause sweat to have an unpleasant odor.

Another way to naturally fight body odor is to adopt a healthy eating pattern. Including plenty of fruits and vegetables in the diet to can help fight body odor.
