Morning people less likely to develop breast cancer

Women who are considered morning people are less likely to develop breast cancer than those who have more energy in the evenings, according to researchers.

The morning people had a reduced risk of more than 40%, compared to the night owls. The research also suggested that for women who slept longer than the recommended seven to eight hours per night, the risk of being diagnosed increased by 20 per cent per additional hour slept.

Using genetic variants associated with people's preference for morning or evening, sleep duration and insomnia, they investigated whether these sleep traits have a causal contribution to the risk of developing breast cancer.

In other words, it is at present unknown whether it is your genetic body clock itself, or living out of sync with it - for instance, forcing yourself to get up early for work if you are a lark - which affects your breast cancer risk.

The first ball went for four, thanks to Hampton, before three successive sixes, two of them off waist-high no balls. In all, the duo added 178 runs for the sixth wicket to take their side to 313/7.

"However, the findings of a protective effect of morning preference on breast cancer risk in our study are consistent with previous research...", Richmond noted.

Women who love a lie-in have a higher risk of developing breast cancer, a new study has warned.

Cliona Kirwan, consultant breast surgeon and researcher at the University of Manchester, said: "The use of Mendelian randomisation in this study enables the researchers to examine the causal effect on breast cancer of different sleep patterns".

Attendees of the event included hundreds of family members, sports teams, friends, and even those valiant survivors affected by breast cancer; most wearing sashes to signify their defeat against the cause.

Careem, one of the region's leading technology organizations, launched a breast cancer awareness campaign in partnership with the Qatar Cancer Society last October. She was not involved in this research.

She tells the BBC: "We still need to get at what makes an evening person more at risk than a morning person... we need to unpick the relationship". Dr Rebecca Richmond, a research fellow with the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol explained that it's more complicated than just setting your alarm to wake up earlier.

The study was funded by Cancer Research UK and the Medical Research Council.

The American Cancer Society says 45% of cancer deaths in the United States are linked to modifiable risk factors, such as cigarette smoke, excess body weight, eating red and processed meat and physical inactivity.
