Regular observers of the Daily Mail's love/hate relationship with cancer scare stories may have been surprised to see a headline on the paper's website this week promising to unravel "cancer myths".
The article duly set about all manner of strange notions about what might cause cancer, such as antiperspirants:
"An e-mail made the rounds a couple of years ago falsely linking antiperspirant with an increased risk of breast cancer. Cancer Research UK and the American Cancer Society have rubbished the claim, saying it is simply not true."
So there you go. Ignore anybody who tries to scare you with stories about antiperspirants causing cancer. Such as the Daily Mail for example:
"All cancer experts say that even if wearing a tight bra somehow reduces blood supply around your breasts there wouldn't be any increased 'toxicity' and nor would normal cells suddenly become cancerous."
Well that's reassuring.
But who's been going around saying tight bras cause cancer? That would probably be the Daily Mail in articles such as 'Is your bra bad for you?', published today - just three days after the Mail unravelled the myth, didn't like the look of it all unravelled, and promptly ravelled it back up again.
