Current research hasn't proven a strong connection between aluminum, the active ingredient in antiperspirants, and breast cancer — https://www.cancerhealth.com/slideshow/5-things-that-cause-cancer-and-5-things-that-probably-dont/6

(Deodorants can work as antiperspirant alternatives, though their job is masking/changing the scent of underarm perspiration, as opposed to antiperspirants, which prevent your underarms from sweating altogether.)
