Melbourne – A large number of women believe the myth that antiperspirant causes breast cancer, but fail to take the recommended amount of exercise, a new survey has revealed.

The poll by the Cancer Australia found that less that half of Australian women think alcohol increases the risk, News.com.au reported.

Council CEO Professor Helen Zorbas said evidence shows that being physically active, maintaining a healthy body weight and limiting alcohol intake all significantly reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.

Zorbas, who is particularly worried about the high proportion of women who believe the long-disproved myth about antiperspirant, said while there will always be cancer risk factors, such as age and genetic susceptibility, beyond individual control, there are a number of positive lifestyle changes we can make to reduce risk and improve overall wellbeing.
