Link between sleep and agressive breast cancers

Not getting enough sleep may be linked to more aggressive types of breast cancer.

Researchers found women who got six hours of sleep or less a night had a higher recurrence of tumors.

Researchers were unable to find a similar link in pre-menopausal women.
