BACKGROUND Over the last decade, the possible association between underarm deodorants/ antiperspirants use and breast cancer risk has raised important interest in the scientific community. [...] Key MethodMETHODS All observational studies that evaluated the association between breast cancer risk and deodorants/antiperspirants use were reviewed. We have only identified two case-control studies, carried out between 2002 and 2006. Expand
Deodorants and antiperspirants: identification of new strategies and perspectives to prevent and control malodor and sweat of the body
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review the main active ingredients used in marketed deodorant and antiperspirant formulations as well as to identify new strategies and future methods to optimize such products and prevent malodor. Expand
Exposure to endocrine disruptors and risk of breast cancer: a systematic review.
TLDR
Qualitative analysis of observational studies indicates that human exposure to EDs is associated with increased breast cancer risk, and additional studies are needed to determine whether this association is causal. Expand
A Comprehensive Analysis of How Environmental Risks of Breast Cancer Are Portrayed on the Internet
TLDR
Assessment of content, readability, and cultural sensitivity of online resources focused on the environmental risks factors of breast cancer suggest that collaborations between scientists, Health Educators, website designers/media professionals, and the community will be critical to the delivery of accurate, up-to-date, plain-language, and culturally sensitive information about breast cancer and the environment. Expand
Exposure to propylparaben during pregnancy and lactation induces long-term alterations to the mammary gland in mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that propylparaben, at levels relevant to human exposure, can interfere with the effects of parity on the mouse mammary glands and induce long-term alterations to mammary gland structure. Expand
How Do African-American Community Members’ Perceptions About Environmental Risks of Breast Cancer Compare with the Current State of the Science?
TLDR
There is some congruence between perceived environmental risks for breast cancer within the AA community and the current state of the science; however, there is a need to communicate information that reflects current science regarding commonly held misconceptions. Expand
Sustained Release Geraniol Nanoparticles Inhibit Human Axillary Odor-Causing Bacteria
Human axillary odor is formed when the skin secretions come into contact with the microflora residing on the skin. The interplay between skin bacteria led to microbial conversion of odorless apocrineExpand
“Talk About Cancer and Build Healthy Communities”: How Visuals Are Starting the Conversation About Breast Cancer Within African-American Communities
TLDR
This study used a community-engaged participatory approach to design an innovative visual tool for disseminating breast cancer information and found that a collaboratively designed visual tool serves as a tangible, focused “conversation starter” to promote community prevention and education efforts. Expand
A case study applying pathway-oriented thinking to problem formulation for planning a systematic review.
TLDR
A conceptual model was developed to map out key research questions, working hypotheses, routes of exposure, toxicity pathways and endpoints, and related health outcomes for a Systematic Review (SR) of aluminium-containing antiperspirants and female breast cancer risk as a case study. Expand
Thiolated polymers: Bioinspired polymers utilizing one of the most important bridging structures in nature.
TLDR
An overview about the thiomer-technology and its potential for different applications is provided discussing especially the outcome of studies in non-rodent animal models and that of numerous clinical trials. Expand

[The use of deodorants/antiperspirants does not constitute a risk factor for breast cancer].
TLDR
After analysis of the available literature on the subject, no scientific evidence to support the hypothesis of a possible link between antiperspirants and breast cancer was identified and no validated hypothesis appears likely to open the way to interesting avenues of research. Expand
Antiperspirant use and the risk of breast cancer.
TLDR
The hypothesis that antiperspirant use increases the risk for breast cancer in women aged 20-74 years is not supported. Expand

TLDR
Frequency and earlier onset of antiperspirant/deodorant usage with underarm shaving were associated with an earlier age of breast cancer diagnosis and may play a role in breast cancer development. Expand

TLDR
The use of antiperspirants had no association with the risk of breast cancer, while family history and oral contraceptives use were found to be associated. Expand

To the Editor:The effect of deodorant use on breast cancer development has generated considerable interest in both the scientific community and the mainstream media. Primary observational studies andExpand
Underarm cosmetics are a cause of breast cancer
  • P. Darbre
  • Medicine
  • European journal of cancer prevention : the official journal of the European Cancer Prevention Organisation
  • 2001
TLDR
A novel, unexplored but plausible explanation for the cause of breast cancer is the use of underarm cosmetics, which are applied repetitively and frequently to an area directly adjacent to the breast area. Expand
If exposure to aluminium in antiperspirants presents health risks, its content should be reduced.
TLDR
Given that the toxicity of Al has been widely recognized and that it is not a physiological component in human tissues, reducing the concentration of this metal in antiperspirants is a matter of urgency. Expand
Awareness of breast cancer incidence and risk factors among healthy women
  • U. Pöhls, S. Renner, +5 authors M. Beckmann
  • Medicine
  • European journal of cancer prevention : the official journal of the European Cancer Prevention Organisation
  • 2004
TLDR
Recommendations for the improvement of cancer prevention programmes include targeting understanding of lifetime risk of breast cancer, age as a risk factor, survival from breast cancer or hormonal factors and separately address the perceptions of women depending on age, social status and educational levels. Expand
Estrogenic activity of constituents of underarm deodorants determined by E-Screen assay.
TLDR
Eight of these single substances showed estrogenic effects with estradiol equivalence factors similar to parabens, a group of 4-hydroxybenzoic acid esters commonly used as preservatives in personal care products, which are known to have a slight estrogenic effect. Expand
Dietary habits contributing to breast cancer risk among Iranian women.
TLDR
Dietary habits might be risk factors for breast cancer among Iranian women and adoption of a prudent diet could be an appropriate strategy for preventing breast cancer. Expand
