I worry about cleaning XPAP stuff, excessive cleaning kills, all those spill ducks died after cleaning them with Dawn, but some of them were delicious with a good wine. Jim

Decades later we are still washing their offspring with Dawn on T.V., and they still taste good.

Can cpap cause cancer?
Old age is a common contributor to cancer--
Longer life is a common result of consistent cpap therapy.
This is the only way the statement is not completely insane.
The longer you live, the more chances cancer can get you.
Live with the odds, or crawl into a hole and die . . .

I once was lost in apnea; but now I'm found--breathing easily all night long.
