its only deodorants with a certain chemical in them. they havent yet proved that that chemical being in a breast that's had cancer is BECAUSE of the deodorants, they just know that that chemical is in some deodorants-though only about 5% of ALL deodorants. Aluminium is in many/most deodorants and that doesn't cause cancer, but has been found to lead to a disease (i forget which one) 95% of deodorants don't contain the chemical linked to cancer though. if you want an aluminium free deodorant, the only one i've fround is called bionsen but is only at all effective if you use the aerosol spray. dearyxxx

I believe the body shop sell deodorant without aluminium. If Aluminium in deodorants causes Cancer, then can men get Breast cancer?

They can, actually, though it's uncommon.

Men have breasts, or some do anyway.

he he. I guess they could get some type of cancer from it. Doubt it would be called 'breat' cancer though.

Anyway you can buy Neways deoderant which doesn't contain aluminium, but u have to get it sent over from the US

yep, it is possible as men have some form of breast tissues from before sex was decided in the womb (same reason they have nipples).

it is also possible for men to lactate (get milk from their nipples), but it is fairly rare- although i have no idea why this ever happens.

Name something that's not linked to causing cancer. Then, I'd be shocked.
Distilled water.

Hey!!

I heard on the radio a couple of minutes ago that deodorants cause cancer due to the substances they contain. Do you think that this is true?

this may be....but came as a shock !!!

Nah, all those H20 molecules are evil little wotsits - they'd give you cancer soon as look at you.

i guess we shouldn't look into it that deeply, as people have already pointed out there are studies into everyday food and the connection with cancer, if we were to believe all these studies we might as well starve. i think this is just a mild warning for the future, maybe to avoid using deodrant if possible...

I'm not going to worry overmuch: for one thing, life's too short, for another the study was very small and didn't produce anything really conclusive anyway, and for another I really don't like smelling bad!

I doubt it's anything to worry about. If anyones really that paranoid, just stick to the non-'antiperspirant' type.
