Anti-Perspirant cause of cancer??

I received an e-mail that says anti-perspirant causes breast cancer. Is this true and if so does this include products like Mitchum?

I extracted a piece for you to read:

The human body has a few areas that it uses to purge toxins   behind the knees, behind the ears, groin area, and armpits. The toxins are purged in the form of perspiration.
Anti-perspirant, as the name clearly indicates, prevents you from perspiring, thereby inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below the armpits.

These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot sweat them out.
Nearly all breast cancer tumors occur in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes are located.
