Since these products stop you from perspiring, and thus detoxing via your sweat and at the same time may contain toxic chemicals, its a no-brainer that they may be linked to an increased risk of cancer. They stop the  body from purging toxin. This leads to accumulation of toxins in the lymph nodes resulting in high toxins concentration in the region below the arms. The accumulated toxins cause cell mutations resulting in tumors such as breast cancer.

3) Carcinogenic Toxins in Non-organic Coffee

They concluded that there was limited evidence but these gadgets could not be ruled out as a possible cause of brain tumors.

5) Alcohol Use and  Global Rate of Cancer

Frequent drinking of alcohol beverages can be associated with an increased risk of certain kinds of cancers, and especially since alcohol use can over time cause liver damage.  Actually 3.5 percent of cancer globally is attributed to alcohol consumption.
