London: Mild snorers have a negligible risk of dying from cancer, but doubles in moderate cases and shoots up to nearly five times in case of severe snoring.The findings were based on data from sleep studies carried out on 1,522 people over 22 years. Previous lab tests on mice have shown that oxygen starvation, caused by snoring promotes tumour growth.Javier Nieto, who led the study at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, said: "The consistency of the evidence from the animal experiments and this new evidence in humans is highly compelling."
