Listen, man...: This is 2014. What do you think people smelled like in the era of the ayur veda (500 bc?) is that what you want? The claim that deodorants / antiperspirants cause cancer / everything else is simply a lie. If you stink, you'll lose your job and they won't tell you why. If you're not prepared to shower and change clothes a few times a day, use a real deodorant. Cheers.
