I am currently having a discussion on the issue of whether anti-perspirant causes cancer and whether the limited evidence on the subject means that one should or should not refrain from using it as a precaution. This is not meant to be a great debate and I know that the Master has already spoken on the subject.
However, I am trying to find evidence that would form the basis of of arguing against the view that using anti-perspirant could be harmful and, therefore, it should be avoided.
In order to do this, I would like to use examples in history where suspicions about new technologies / medicines / products when first introduced have been disproven. For example, I believe that there were suspicions around televisions “leaking” microwaves that could cause tissue damage when it was first introduced. Any more info on this and other related issues would be much appreciated.
