Cancer and Depression: Too Little Sleep, Too Much Television

Posted Nov 19 2008 7:18am

About 40 million Americans don’t get enough sleep. Not cool, especially when you consider a recent report linking insufficient sleep with greater risk of cancer. Even when adjusted for age and exercise of level of participants, sleep played an important role in cancer; Reuters explains.

Skipping sleep is a nasty habit too, I’m guilty of it, but I don’t watch very much television. Good thing, because a new study in Social Indicators Research claims people that watch a lot of TV are unhappy. Unlike people who don’t and are involved in activities, they’re happier; via LiveScience.

Obesity is also a major risk-factor for both cancer and depression.
