    Unfortunately almost all antiperspirants contain aluminium...most deodorants too. I sometimes use a lavender one, it's only a deodorant but it seems to stop sweating too - look for organic brands, they'll be more expensive but when it's something you're putting onto your skin and absorbing into your body every day, it's worth shelling out when you consider the health risks.

    The aluminium in the cans gets into your pores and causes cancer and alzheimers. And thanks loads RJ555, Rep'd you!
    Why don't you just buy one that's fragrance free, but comes in like a roll-on? no aluminium? there's also those push-up ones that look like soap.

    Ok, looking at the news, it's if you put it anywhere in the pelvic region.
