People suffering from sleep apnea have a dramatically higher risk of cancer, according to a new study.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin, in our own backyard, found that people with sleep-disordered breathing are almost five times more likely to die of cancer than those who don’t have interrupted breathing during sleep.

Sleep apnea is characterized by loud snoring and interrupted breathing.

Researchers found that the more severe a person’s breathing problems during sleep, the higher the risk of cancer death. People with moderate apnea were found to die of cancer at double the normal rate. Those with severe nighttime breathing problems had a risk 4.8 times greater than those without the sleep disorder.

After a brief twelve minute speech, Doug was ceremoniously sung an off-tune rendition of “Happy Birthday” by the gang.

In this photo Doug is saying, “Hmmm, great cake, but 5 candles and a half-gone beer? C’mon, Man! I may be old but I can still blow with the best of ’em.” We’re not sure what Doug meant but at least he didn’t spit too much on the frosting.
