A new study has found a possible link between aluminum in deodorants and breast cancer.
This study observed that women who have already had mastectomies done, carried high levels of aluminum in their outer breasts.
According to Dr. Chris Exley, who tested 17 patients at Wythenshaw Hospital, Manchester, all of the women had the metal concentrated closest to their underarms.
However, Dr. Christopher Flower, the director general of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association did not agree with the study’s findings
“We do not believe that aluminum is absorbed into the body from the use of antiperspirants,” he was quoted as saying.
The research will however, be published in the November issue of the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry.
