It’s hard to believe the world is going to end, but there’s still plenty of time to get a pet back on its feet, if you don’t mind spending time with them.
A new study by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder found that people who are more than two hours late for appointments to see a doctor are less likely to be diagnosed with cancer.
“In general, the longer we wait to get treatment, the higher our chances of developing cancer,” lead author Daniel Fischman said in a statement.
“We found that the longer a patient is in a place of stress, the lower their chances of getting diagnosed with any type of cancer.”
For example, if a person is too busy to go to appointments with a doctor, but their doctor doesn’t visit them that day, they have a 75% chance of developing a colon cancer.
Fischmann’s study was published in the journal PLOS ONE.
