Spaceflight is a unique stress model impacted consistently or intermittently by myriad stresses, including psychosocial and physical stresses, high G forces at the time of launch and landing, increased radiation , sleep deprivation, microgravity and nutritional factors. This multitude of factors alters the immune system and could lead to compromised defenses against infections and tumors, although it is not likely to be a serious concern for short-duration orbital space flight.
