Researchers in Australia are publishing some startling figures today after a 20 year study that tracked the cases of cancer found in patients with sleep apnea!
They discovered that people with sleep apnea are 340% more likely to die of cancer than those without it!
And the alarming numbers don’t end there!
They also determined that those with the condition are also two and a half times more likely to

This is so sad!
The family of Jahi McMath has successfully moved the 13-year-old girl from the Children's Hospital in Oakland to stop them from shutting down the teenager's life support, but experts believe that it will only be a matter of time before the young lady passes away.

As if we needed any more reasons to be afraid of cancer. Now we don't have to only worry during our waking hours… we can worry in our sleep!
A new study has found that people with nighttime breathing difficulties had a higher chance of developing cancer.
That means people who snore, people who have sleep apnea or other types of troubled breathing would have a higher risk of cancer.
People with severe sleep disordered breathing (SDB) had a 4.8 times higher chance of developing cancer. Those with moderate and low SDB had a 2 times more and 1.1 times more risk, respectively.
The researchers believe it's because of oxygen deprivation during the night. This can lead to the formation of new blood vessels, which can accelerate the growth of cancerous tumors.
So not only is snoring annoying, it's carcinogenic now. That's terrifying.
Good luck getting to sleep tonight. Sorry! LOLz!

A Harvard study of nearly 5,000 police officers across the nation has determined that 40% tested positive for a sleep disorder that may be causing them to nod off behind the wheel!
The majority of those who were discovered to have a sleep disorder, like insomnia or sleep apnea, never received treatment. Even worse is that 46% admitted to falling asleep at the wheel at least once, while 26% said they do so at least once or twice a month!
