Link between aluminum antiperspirants and breast cancer?

As an oncology certified nurse practitioner I have been instructing patients to avoid the use of aluminum based antiperspirants for years. I had read research several years ago that showed a link between fibrocystic breast disease and antiperspirants. My reasoning was that if aluminum was showing up in breasts cysts, it certainly could be linked to breast cancer. Here is research to show that there is in fact a link. More studies and research are needed, of course. But should we wait for definitive proof or be proactive about protecting against breast cancer?

Prevention is Our Passion

Welcome to the Alpharetta Wellness Clinic blog! Our topic today is Prevention. For most people, preventive medicine means mammograms and screening of various kinds: Pap smears for women, PSA lab tests for men, and colonoscopy for both. But these are not prevention in the pure sense of the word. They are really means of early (hopefully) detection.
 
At Alpharetta Wellness Clinic we take a different view of prevention, an approach we like to call Proactive Prevention. What we have discovered over the years is that many , in fact most diseases are preventable, simply by making certain choices in life.
