can deodorant cause cancer?
my mum said that it can.
There is a chemical in anti-perspirant - aluminium-zirconium - that has been supposedly linked to cancer and other health risks. I'm not sure how substantiated it is, but if you buy something called "deodorant" and it's not labeled "antiperspirant" then it won't contain that chemical.
Aluminium-zirconium works by blocking the sweat glands. Plain old deodorant is just something that smells nice.
hmm... I heard that dove deoderant is the one that causes cancer. but I'm sure if this was all true it would not be sold in stores for us to use.
