Great, I have insomnia tonight so I see a post about why sleep deprivation is bad for you. A few clicks into the slideshow and there it is….lack of sleep causes cancer.
Well of course it does. Because there is not a scientist or medical researcher alive that cannot somehow link anything a person does to cancer. And yes, it has to be something the person with cancer did, because we all know those of us with cancer brought it on ourselves. I know I keep harping on the blame the victim issue. I’ll stop when “they” (researchers, scientists, doctors, journalists) stop blaming the patients.
Best part was the note in the blurb saying lack of sleep is linked to recurrence of breast cancer. So I am up at nights sometimes worrying about cancer coming back…and that causes cancer to come back. Or the other half of the time, I’m out like a light, because I still get very tired, very suddenly thanks to all that treatment.
I have to go back to breathing now. Whoops, better not do that, it causes cancer.
