Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

We have been told that body sprays and deodorants are the correct way to deal with summer sweat. It is genuinely considered that people who do not use deodorants and antiperspirants are seen as unhygienic and dirty people. Yes, smelling good is an essential trait and we all need to smell good most of the time. However, these perfumes are not the correct way. You do not even know if they are safe enough to be used over the body. This article will talk about the health hazards that are possessed by deodorants and antiperspirants.

Most people use these underarms which are closer to the breasts. They pose a serious health hazard including breast cancer. The main element in the sprays is an aluminum-like compound that acts as an enzyme and sticks to the wall of the sweat glands. The passage of the sweat is blocked by this compound which does not allow the secretion of any more sweat. However, researchers have shown concerns regarding the issue that these compounds when blocking the passageway are absorbed by the skin which releases certain kinds of altered hormones.

The hormone that is released is known as estrogen which is known to increase the cell turnover and allow the formation of cysts. These cysts can turn into cancerous blobs which can alter the normal functioning of the body. The hormone, estrogen, is known to cause skin cancer if produced in some areas in excess. Studies have been done on these as the intensity of the matter is intense. People’s lives are at risk. It is high time that the government ensures that any product introduced as a daily ritual should avoid fears pertaining to cancer issues. In conclusion, no evidence has been gathered against this hypothesis, however, extra care won’t harm anyone.
