 Aging Accelerates Among Breast Cancer Survivors
Breast cancer survivors experience constant fatigue and a recent research has shown that one in three women who have survived breast cancer are victims of this problem.

Survivors of breast cancer can feel 20 years older as the process of aging occurs at a faster rate due to the functions of the autonomic nervous system.

The autonomic nervous system is divided into two parts - the sympathetic and parasympathetic system, which control unconscious activities like digestion, heartbeat and breathing.
