Health Alert: Insomnia may increase prostate cancer risk

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Men, if you have trouble sleeping, you may be at a greater risk for prostate cancer. Researchers in Iceland asked more than two-thousand men over the age of 67 about their sleeping patterns. They found men who have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep were twice as likely to develop the disease. Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer for men in the United States.


(CBS) - Studies have shown that physical activity can reduce a woman's risk of breast cancer. But, researchers from the University of Minnesota wanted to know why.  They studied nearly 400 woman. Results showed aerobic exercise changes the way estrogen breaks down – producing more of a good molecule. That is known to lower the risk of breast cancer.


(CBS) - A 14-year study found fast food restaurants have modestly improved the nutritional quality of their food. Researchers in Minnesota analyzed data from menus of eight restaurants including McDonald's, Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Based on the healthy eating index the overall quality improved by two points. KFC saw the most improvement with a nine-point increase. Researchers say more than 25-percent of American adults eat fast food two or more times a week. High fat and high salt foods can lead to diet-related chronic diseases.
