Two Internet rumors continue to perpetuate the belief that bras and antiperspirants can cause breast cancer. Some of these Internet rumors claim that bras allow toxins in the lymph fluid to accumulate in the breast, which leads to breast cancer. Others claim that the leading cause of breast cancer is the use of antiperspirants, which keep the body from purging toxins. This, they say, leads to a high concentration of toxins in the lymph nodes below the arms, resulting in breast cancer. Neither rumor is true.Learn more about these Internet myths here.
