A new report claims woman who wake up early have lesser chances of developing breast cancer.
Researchers from university of Bristol in England have organized a study with 180,215 women participant’s part of biobank project and 228,951 women also part of survey led by international Breast cancer association. As the outcomes need to be completely reviewed, presented at NCRI Cancer Conference in Glasgow, Scotland
With process of genetics known as Mendelian randomization identified that woman who prefer to wake up early in morning reduced 40 to 80 percent risk of breast cancer. And woman sleeping for late hours in the morning has 20 percent increased risk of developing the cancer. It means the researchers reasonably confident body clocks are involved in cancer.
Rebecca Richmond, a research fellow at the University of Bristol. She involved in the study said the findings could have implications for those working night shifts. Still more studies to understand the connection between waking up earlier or later in the day and breast cancer diagnosis.
“It may not be the case that changing your habits changes your risk of breast cancer; it may be more complex than that,” Richmond said in a statement.
