For some time, an email rumor suggested that underarm antiperspirants cause breast cancer. Among its claims:. There are no strong epidemiologic studies in the medical literature that link breast cancer risk and antiperspirant use, and very little scientific evidence to support this claim.

The researchers found no link between breast cancer risk and antiperspirant use, deodorant use, or underarm shaving. A study published in looked at responses from questionnaires sent out to women who had breast cancer. The researcher reported that women who were diagnosed with breast cancer at a younger age said they used antiperspirant and started shaving their underarms earlier and shaved more often than women who were diagnosed when they were older.
