SPIDER FINGERS is not a princess
Is it true spray deodrant increases your risk of cancer?
Because of the aluminium in it? I heard that today, & now I'm terrified because there's a lot of history of cancer in my family, have I just blown it by using spray deodrant for the past three/four years?

I heard that for breast cancer, and on a show, they said it wasn't true, so for short, it's just a myth.

No. There is no scientific documented evidence to support this claim. It is considered a myth.

Antiperspirant Use Does Not Increase Risk Of Breast Cancer
Study Proves Pervasive Rumor Is Not Fact

No it does not cause cancer, there has been no scientific evidence of this, if there has been a lot of cancers in your family you can ask your doctor if you can have gene testing, it a very simple procedure, first a family history is taken of everyone in your family who has had cancer then you are sent away to think about having a blood test if you wish to take the testing further, your very well looked after and will get to have more screening too, I am in the process of having this done myself and feel so much happier now I am been screened more often, most cancers are because of genetic make up and nothing to do with diet or deodorants.

It seems as if this evidence they found recently was perhaps blown out of proportion. I'm sure it can't be that bad, as a large number of people use deodorants and anti-perspirants and don't get breast cancer. There may be a slightly increased risk, but these days, everything can give you cancer, so don't worry too much!

No, of course not!


!!Cherries.x
As the people above have told you, it is rumored to but there is no evidence. if this is worrying you a lot you can buy "Pitrock" from most health shops for a very reasonable price and even the smelliest man wont smell through it. Its a crystal rock and you need to wet it before use. Research about it on Google.
Good luck!

I do recall reading an item about this, they maintain that the aluminium in the under arm rollers is thought to contribute towards breast cancer.

This is not the first time I have read this - so it does beg the question, there are deoderants that you can buy without the aluminium in, so use that instead, or there are these rock crystals you can buy, I am trying to find these at present.

Better safe then sorry, lets face it, best to keep to natural everything and you cant go far wrong can you.

to be honest liven in this world everything is a risk of cancer

Depends if the content is propelled by CFCs ? (ChloroFluroCarbons)
If they are rollons or pump action dispensers, the risk is lower.

There was some evidence a while back about these spray deodorant and that's why i stopped using them... I use the roll on ones now which are much better anyway. I don't think it affects everybody because they would not be able to sell it anymore if it was that bad. Just switch to using the roll on ones. You will be OK, don't worry...

I don't know about the cancer risks, but switch to role-ons if you suffer from asthma, it'll have you coughing like mad.

A lot of studies have been performed in this are; but non of them have provided any concrete evidence that aluminium from deodourant causes breast cancer. Try not to become one of these people who gets hung up on this sort of thing- you might find that with everything that supposedly causes cancer these days- you'll end up with no life if you adhere to all the advice!

Cancer isn't generally hereditary- however if its the same kind of cancer in every generation (i don't know if thats what you meant) then there may be a genetic link, and you should speak to you doctor about genetic testing if you're particularly worried.

If you are still concerned about your aluminium intake- try drinking a mineral water with a high silicon content- Volvic is a good one. It *has* been proven that silicon is required in the excretion of aluminium from the body.

I don't think we are talking about just breast cancer here. The problem with anything you put onto your skin is that it gets absorbed through your skin. There has got to be a reason that the amount of cancer now is starting to get out of control, at the moment one out of five people get cancer now, and like with mobile phones you will never get a proper independent scientific study into this stuff because there is so much money involved and the companies apart from being huge would have massive problems with compensation.

It's not the deodorant that they say is so bad, it's the carcinogenics in the aerosol that are horrible.


resignedtolife
Parabens have been found in breast tumours. In all probability they came from deodorants but there is no proof that the parabens caused the cancer.

I have had breast cancer twice and now use a deodorant called ROC, which does not have any alumimium, just in case.


Tesco - very little help

Research has recently shown that the numbers of cancerous lumps occuring in the part of the breast that's closest to the armpits has significantly increased over the years - this could be to do with the fact that deodorant/antiperspirants may block the lymphatic system up - the lymphatic system helps to clear toxins and waste products out of the body and interfering with this system can have serious consequences.

I've stopped using any underarm products. As long as you shower each day and wear fresh clothes you can't smell anything. Fresh sweat has very little smell.

If you can't do without then use a crystal product such as Pitroc.

Yes, but so does eating toast. You have to weigh up the risks.
