Get more sleep!

By: Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of The American Academy of Personal Training

New research suggests that people who get less than 6 hours of sleep a night have a 50% increased risk of developing colon cancer adenomas or benign tumors.  This is compared to those who are lucky enough to get at least 7 hours of sleep time.  If not treated, adenomas can turn into cancerous tumors.  Sleep problems have also been connected to heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
