A chronic decrease of heart rate variability can precede some cases of cancer

This paper is interesting because it links heart rate variability (and it must be taken into account that heart is the major electromagnetic field generator, and heart rate variability an interesting factor of adaptability, health and more [1][2]) with the genesis of cancer.

" The paper brings experimental evidence about the existence of relationship between the chronic decrease of heart rate variability (HRV) and malignancy. It is supposed that this phenomenon can be used for early prediction of health risk towards cancer. In accordance with a long-term lasting prophylactic program HRV measures were obtained in 2147 practically healthy workers from both sexes (712 men and 1435 women) in working age. The epidemiological case control (first part of the study) provided 4 years later proved that the workers with a chronic drift in sympathetical - to - parasympathetic balance towards a sympathetical prevalence are exposed to a higher health risk for carcinomathosis (p<0.01). In the second part of the study the HRV measures were collected in 247 cancer patients (154 men and 93 women, mean age 38 years from Bulgarian Oncological Center) and in a control group being representative for country population (3852 men and 4254 women, mean age 39.5 years). Mean values of both groups were compared statistically. The comparison reveal that the autonomic balance in cancer patients is much more sympathetically oriented (p<0.001)."
