DM needs to be made up of particles or objects that are slow and non relativistic. DM concentrates around galaxies, and tends to stay around, DM needs to be cold to stay around. As for cosmic rays it'...

As @ACuriousMind says in the comment, there is contamination in the CMB, but this is mainly due to Galactic dust and Bremsstrahlung from ...
