Trastornos del Sueño y el Cáncer de Seno: Nuevo estudio en la Universidad de Michigan relaciona directamente la carencia del sueño y  el cáncer de Seno.


·         La carencia de la melatonina y su relación con el  cáncer de pecho, es en  parte,  porque en nuestra sociedad moderna existe la privación del sueño debido a estilos de vida, horarios laborales o apnea obstructiva

·         La deficiencia o carencia de melatonina hace que el cáncer crezca más rápido.

·         El índice de Cáncer de Seno es  30 por ciento más alto para las mujeres que habían trabajado con cambios en el horario circadiano y con trastornos del sueño

·         Durante la fase profunda del sueño (N3),  es donde se segregan las hormonas y neurotransmisores como la serotonina, la serotonina es un precursor de la melatonina.

·         La melatonina  suprime el crecimiento de tumores, especialmente los del seno, según investigadores en la universidad de Estado de Michigan

“New research shows that snoring, and specifically sleep apnea, could result in decreased libido and erectile dysfunction, according to researchers at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel. Their study found that nearly half of the men who suffered from severe sleep apnea also secreted abnormally low levels of TESTOSTERONE throughout the night. More than 42 to 64 percent of men with snoring and obstructive sleep apnea are impotent.”
