    MONDAY, Feb. 27 (HealthDay News) -- Prescription sleeping pills may help you get some much needed rest at night, but using them routinely might also make it more likely that you will die or develop certain types of cancer, research suggests.
    ...Those taking the highest doses were also at greater risk of developing several types of cancer, including esophagus, lymphoma, lung, colon and prostate cancers. Interestingly, the risks of leukemia, breast cancer, uterine cancer, bladder cancer, leukemia and melanoma were not elevated. This association was not explained away by preexisting health problems, the researchers added

        There's probably a study showing that very thing!

        So if you hold your breath routinely are you more likely to make it to 90?

            I can see the tension in the thumb.
            Be careful though. Speed kills (will check for references to a study on that as well).
