I think I answered a question like this not long ago but for your sake I will share my knowledge with you.
Sweating is your bodies way of getting rid of toxins. If your body is blocked from getting rid of those toxins then they have to go somewhere. Breast fatty tissue is a welcoming place! Sweating is blocked by the use of anti-perspirants. Deodorants work on overcoming smell but nonetheless they are chemicals that can be absorbed into the skin. I have tried practically everything to avoid using traditional deodorants but my body is a real stinker.
Cancer is all about toxic levels in one's body. I don't feel that anti-perspirants and deodorants are solely responsible for cancers forming but certainly could contribute to adding to the level of toxins in your body hence an opportunity for cancer to form.

No it doesn't. To my knowledge, there are no carcinogens in deodorant.

There are many deodorants that have some pretty heavy duty industrial chemicals in them. It's always a good idea to be wary of what is in anything you apply to or ingest into your body. Some toothpastes for example have potassium nitrate which is an industrial cleaner used to burn organic solids when mixed with other similar chemicals. This is just one example of many.

Try using a powder type antiperspirant. However, try not to inhale it while applying it. You could also likely find some all natural deodorants on the internet.

The ones with Aluminum zicronium have been known to casue cancer in rats and it can possibly cause cancer.

Nowadays, it seems like everything gives you cancer.

Unless your using the new tumor scented stick, I think your all set.

No,it doesn't,thank heavens!I don't know how this rumor got started,but,there's no truth to it

Anthony Pittarelli
apparently the kind with aluminum does give you cancer

Your aunt is misinformed... deodorant gives you the possibility of boyfriends/girlfriends

Ha! That's hilarious! If we didn't wear deodorant, we'd die of the stink! And how can you get CANCER by rubbing something on your armpits?

You could research most any product, food or activity and there would be someone, somewhere that claims that it causes cancer. I don't believe there is any solid evidence to that fact.

no but you could use natural deodorant just in case

no no no no

deodorant is more like soap, it just stops you from smelling bad. doedorant slows down the growth of bacteria which causes the smell; soap washes away the bacteria.

Anitperspirant however uses some aluminium something which causes some gland in your skin to swell and stop you from sweating. There are some rumours that this causes breast cancer but it's not true. However antiperspirant in general is not good for you. Doedorant is perfectly fine though.

From what I know, a very few can. I don't remember the name, but there can be a substance in some that can give cancer!
The one that is 100% sure is Sanex.

those theories have been proven wrong read about it here.

choose as best answer

There's no clear evidence yet that using deodorants or antiperspirants cause breast cancer.
So many people buy deodorants/antiperspirants but I find that its one of those products that we don't really need.
Unless you sweat a lot and your sweat smells really bad.

The same chemicals in deodorant and other common cosmetics and shampoos have been found in breast cancer tissue. The chemicals mentioned are called parabens, and can be absorbed by the skin. I would suggest using natural products and if you can, find deodorant that does not use these potentially dangerous chemicals.

Here is a list of parabens you want to watch out for:


hint** look for "paraben"
I'm glad you asked this question, and I think your aunt has sufficient cause to say such a thing.

yeah it does, so don't wear it.


That's an urban legend.

If it were true, EVERYONE between the ages of 7 and 100 would have cancer.

Those with alkali in it can cause skin cancer over prolonged use.

Most brands discontinued the use of alkali products as ordered by the FDA in the late 90's.

Just read an article that someone sent me. It said that you should check and make sure it doesn't contain aluminum.

I've heard that it does because of so many chemicals, but there are so many things out there that have these chemicals. So your best bet would be to use organic products.

No...it's a myth. Please wear your deodorant.

Your aunt in misinformed. Just think, if that was the case, tons of people would be dying of cancer and mobs would demand it be taken off the shelves..

Jamie G
Well aluminum that is in some deoderents have been linked to breast cancer. You can buy all natural deoderents or ones without aluminum...its actually true. My doctor told me and I have read it.

The reseach so far says 'No'!!! Some links have been make between some deodrants and breast cancer but these haven't been proved in decent research. The site below give several examples of this.

So go ahead, wear deodrant if you want. And if you are still worried go organic with the last link.
By the way, I'm a nurse too.
