> Persistant insomnia is probably itself a risk factor for cancer, but treating it with benzos does not restore natural rhythems of brain chemicals and hormones.

Benzos also impair sleep quality - at least as determined by EEG. For comparison, antihistamines in general are neutral, while the antihistamine and serotonin 5-HT2A antagonist cyproheptadine seems to improve it.
