In brief: Aluminium

Several preliminary studies, including a july 2003 review published in the european journal of cancer prevention, have suggested that hygiene products containing aluminum--all dove antiperspirant products have aluminum, specifically aluminum zirconium--may increase your risk of contracting a cancer such as breast cancer.
