To Sleep, Perchance to Dream, That Is the Medical Question | Cary A. Presant, M.D.

Alcune raccomandazioni di Cary A. Presant riguardo ai disturbi del sonno e la loro possibile correlazione con alcune forme di cancro.

“But are sleep disorders associated with cancers in people? Yes, and more than you might think. Short sleep duration was found to increase the incidence of breast cancer by 60 percent. Since colon polyps were 53 percent more frequent in patients with sleep disorders, it is not surprising that colon cancer was also found to be more frequent in patients with disrupted sleep, possibly sleep apnea. Even liver cancer was found to be slightly increased in sleep disorders”
