What is Sleep Apnea
Sleep Apnea Patients at Higher Risk
2012 | Posted in: Dr. Halstrom News, Education Centre, silencer-news, Uncategorized
Two new studies show that people who suffer from sleep apnea may
be at higher risk of developing cancer than people without sleep apnea. In one
of the studies, Spanish researchers followed thousands of patients at sleep
clinics and found that those with the most severe sleep apnea had a 65 percent higher chance of
developing cancer of any kind. In the second study, researchers in Wisconsin
studied about 1,250 government workers and found that those with the most
breathing abnormalities at night had five times the rate of dying from any
cancer than those without the sleep disorder. [www.shape.com]
