CANCER RESEARCH did a study and found that mice whose sleep was disrupted developed larger, more aggressive tumors than well-rested mice. One group of mice slept restfully and the second group of mice had their sleep disrupted every two minutes and they then injected all the mice with tumor cells and they developed tumors. What even was more interesting is that the mice with disrupted sleep developed tumors twice the size of mice that slept normally. It also showed those with tumors that had disrupted sleep had more aggressive tumors and that it invaded surrounding tissues.
Our society has sleep issues and as we age there are even more far reaching implications for the lack of sleep and related cancer growth.
Sleep has a positive effect on the immune system!
