Sleeping a little longer than usual could lower your breast cancer risk

by , 20 November 2014

While you should sleep between seven and nine hours every night, for women, sleeping a little longer could have significant benefits.

A Finnish study showed women who slept, on average, ten hours a night, had a lower breast cancer risk than those who slept less.

Researchers found it had to do with a hormone your body makes when you sleep. In fact, this hormone literally possesses anticancer properties!

Read on to discover what breast cancer has to do with how much you sleep…

The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...

I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.

Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!

That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").

And if you or someone you love is battling cancer... You definitely can't afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks.

Sleep patterns and light exposure play a role in your breast cancer risk

The hormone melatonin – made by your brain and mainly kept in your skin – plays an important role in your day/night cycle.
Before the use of artificial light, sunlight directly controlled people’s sleep and periods of being awake.
When the sun went down, melatonin production increased. Then, when the sun came up, it stopped.
This is important, because your body literally uses melatonin as an antioxidant against the sun’s UV rays. So, by the end of the day, your levels of melatonin decrease and sleep is the only way to replenish them.
You can imagine why, nowadays, people suffer such out of whack melatonin production. Not only do you sleep less than people did ten years ago, but your quality of sleep is probably poorer too.
Just think about your artificial light exposure. Even small amounts of light seeping through a crack in your curtains can affect your sleep patterns and melatonin production.
But it’s not just artificial light. Think about all your electronic devices you have plugged in around your room and next to your bed.
These are even worse for you as blue light is one of the worst for melatonin production, says Harvard Health.

Make every night the best night's sleep you've had in years!

Getting a good night's sleep should never feel like work. If the thought of getting into bed includes visions of tossing, turning and lying awake until the wee hours of the morning...

Then I've got a solution for you!

Dr. Vincent Giampapa, past-President of the American Academy of Anti-Ageing Medicine, has found a drug-free way to help eliminate insomnia to help you fall asleep and stay asleep all night - so you could wake up completely refreshed and recharged in the morning.

Don't suffer through another sleepless night. Make every night a great night's sleep - guaranteed!

A little more sleep is just what your body needs to fend off breast cancer

When you don’t give your body enough time to replenish its melatonin levels, you start the following day with less.
But your body doesn’t use less!
You end up having lower and lower levels if you continue to miss out on the optimal time of production.
And without melatonin, your body doesn’t have natural cancer fighting abilities.
That’s where sleeping a little longer comes in.
The Finnish study on 12,222 women found those who slept on average ten hours a night had higher melatonin levels and, thus, a lower breast cancer risk.
Do you need any other excuse to get more sleep? We didn’t think so!
