    Default Do Antiperspirants/Deodorants Cause Cancer?

    I've been using my roll-on deodorant/antiperspirant for quite some time now. One day my friend referred me to a few websites discussing the harm associated with the chemicals used to produce deodorants/antiperspirants.

    My friend went to roll-on deodorants/antiperspirants with organic ingredients instead.

    The chemical used in many deodorants supposedly are aluminium (aluminium zirconium) or zinc salts which some say are carcinogenic to the body. I'm not fully sure about all of this. So I'm seeking some opinion about this whole thing!

    Here's the link to it for your reference http://health.howstuffworks.com/skin...ast-cancer.htm

    Any thoughts guys?

    "Better safe than sorry" is my approach. I avoid aluminum, parabens and so on whenever possible. There are alternatives out there.

    I posted somewhere already about Alum, completely natural and works way better. Amazon search Alum deodorant, I use the one from Christal. Do some wiki searches and amazon reviews and it should convince you. I switched about a month ago and couldn't be happier.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    There are no scientific grounds supporting this radical hypothesis. If this were true, almost everyone on earth would have cancerous developments.

    No. That Product A may increase the risk of developing cancer, or other diseases, doesn't mean that all users of Product A will get sick.

    The study showing aluminum may cause an increased risk of developing cancer seems to be questionable at best, though.

    I only use deodorants without aluminum salts. Period.
