How It Could Kill You
In 2008, a 12-year-old British kid died of abnormal heart rhythms after using copious amounts of spray deodorant — no doubt trying to vaporize his first terrifying pubescent B.O. Of course, most aerosol products warn consumers about the dangers of direct inhalation, which can range anywhere from dizziness to brain damage to death. And doctors say that the kid already had a cardiac abnormality that was triggered by solvents in the deodorant. Still: Death by deodorant.
But Will It Actually Kill You?
Well, probably not, unless you’re continually huffing aerosol deodorant. In which case, what’s your problem? Everyone knows that’s what glue is for.
