Colon cancer with long sleepers
Long snatches who snore and overweight obesity are more likely to suffer from bowel cancer than snurkers and overweight people who sleep briefly. This is evidenced by a study by the Boston Harvard Medical School.
The research that was done among 30,121 men and 76,368 women answered questions about their lifestyle, their illnesses and sleep habits. They also had to indicate whether they were snoring. In total, 1973 people found to develop colon cancer. Especially in people who were snoring or too heavy and slept more than 9 hours a night. They had up to 2x more risk of colon cancer than snurkers and overweight people who slept an average of 7 hours a night.
Researchers therefore suspect a connection between sleep apnea and colon cancer. People with sleep apnea and sleep-related hypoxia do not get enough oxygen during sleep.Previous research in experimental animals has shown that oxygen deficiency stimulates tumor growth.
