October is Breast Cancer awareness month; here are some myths about causes of breast cancer:

1. The aluminum in antiperspirants does not actually cause toxins to concentrate in the breasts.

2. Silicone or saline breast implants have found to create no increase in breast cancer. The only problem with implants is that it can make it difficult for radiologists to clearly see the whole breast.

3. The underwire in bras does not actually slow circulation or cause toxin build up in the breasts.

4. Daily intake of caffeine does not show evidence of cancer-risk but may cause benign cysts.
