In brief: No.
Hysterical e-mails to this effect have been circulating almost as long as e-mail has existed.
The usual message is that harmful substances such as aluminum and parabens can be absorbed through the underarm skin. There is no credible evidence that any substance in deodorants or antiperspirants is absorbed in any amount significant enough to cause you harm.
