Are Aluminum-Containing Antiperspirants Contributing To Breast Cancer In Women?

Story at-a-glance -

  • Your antiperspirant probably contains aluminum, and that aluminum may be absorbed into your breast tissue where it could potentially increase your risk of breast cancer or other health problems
  • Women with breast cancer have higher levels of aluminum in their nipple aspirate fluid (NAF), a fluid present in the breast duct tree
  • Studies show aluminum from antiperspirants is deposited in breast tissue, and animal studies have also found that aluminum can cause cancer
  • Important breast-cancer prevention strategies include choosing natural personal care products, being aware of bra risk factors, limiting your fructose/sugar intake, exercising, and optimizing your vitamin D (through sun exposure) and animal-based omega-3 fat levels
