Stanford Research Builds Link Between Sleep, Cancer Progression: finally I have a strong argument against those that would undermine and limit my sleeping hours. Now if you would excuse me I have a nap to take:
"Psychosocial factors affect your behavior patterns, such as exercise, what you eat and drink, and your sleep," Spiegel said. Of these factors, how well you sleep can seriously alter the balance of hormones in your body. This makes the sleep/wake cycle, also called the circadian rhythm, a good candidate for linking a person's social network to their cancer prognosis.
