Morning people have a lower risk of breast cancer

Princess Reema

Compared to night owls, women who are early risers had a 40 percent lower risk of breast cancer, the study found.

Dr Richmond said: "We would like to do further work to investigate the mechanisms underpinning these results, as the estimates obtained are based on questions related to morning or evening preference rather than actually whether people get up earlier or later in the day". People tend to be genetically programmed to fall into either of these categories.

Out of the 400 000 women, 2,740 were breast cancer survivors and 149 064 were disease free.

If the study passes peer review, it will show convincing evidence linking body clock to breast cancer risk but it does not explain why this link exists in the first place.

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

But if you are a morning person, feel free to give yourself yet another pat on the back.

But the team point out that many factors are involved in a person developing breast cancer and that these numbers are not an absolute risk.

US abruptly postpones top-level North Korea talks
The talks between President Donald Trump's top diplomat and the North Korean delegation were due to be held on Thursday. "We will reconvene when our respective schedules permit".

Careem, one of the region's leading technology organizations, launched a breast cancer awareness campaign in partnership with the Qatar Cancer Society last October. 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 presented Tuesday at the U.K.'s National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) annual cancer conference, in Glasgow, Scotland.

The participants included 180,215 women enrolled with the UK Biobank project - a large long-term study which includes genomic data on about half a million people - and 228,951 women who had been part of a study on breast cancer carried out by the worldwide Breast Cancer Association Consortium (BCAC), which has the largest collection of genetic data on women with breast cancer in the world.

"Previous research has looked at the impact of shift work, but this is showing there may be a risk factor for all women".

"We know that sleep is important generally for health", said Richmond.

The study was funded by Cancer Research UK and the Medical Research Council. "This study provides further evidence to suggest disrupted sleep patterns may have a role in cancer development", she said.

"In terms of the implications of the research, it supports existing evidence that sleep patterns influence cancer risk, but it remains unclear how individual preferences for early or late rising interact with actual sleep behaviours", Moorthie wrote in an email.
