Snoring Linked To Worse Cancer Outcomes in New Research

snoringSnoring is not only a nuisance to a partner or the family; it could be a sign of deeper health problems. Snoring is a symptom of the more serious problem called sleep apnoea.

Key takeaways:

·         Sleep apnoea is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep that deprive the body of oxygen, a condition called hypoxia.

·         Intermittent hypoxia leads to the formation of blood vessels within tumours that deliver more nutrients, increasing growth of the tumor

·         Sleep apnoea is linked to worse cancer outcomes, increased risk of high blood pressure, and stroke.

“Although this is an experimental study, it is remarkable, because it demonstrates the influence of oxygen deficiency on the growth of renal cell carcinoma tissue, both primary tumour as well as metastases."
