Ученые выяснили, кто чаще болеет раком:  совы  или  жаворонки

According to scientists, women, owls risk of getting breast cancer by 48% more than women-“larks”.

Women-“the lark” breast cancer occurs in one and a half times less frequently than women-the”owls”. To such conclusion experts from the University of Bristol.

Scientists selected 341 the DNA fragment responsible for the tendency to the way of life “owl” or “lark”. Then they studied the correlation of this tendency with the risk of developing breast cancer 180 thousand women from UK Biobank, a major UK storage of genetic information, and almost 230 thousand women of the international Association for breast cancer.

It turned out that the “owls” risk of breast cancer by 48% more than the “larks”. What is the specific reason for this is unclear. Perhaps the fact that “owl” cause harm to the body, forcing myself to get up early in the morning to go to work. Or the thing itself the internal clock of the body and how they affect hormone levels, immune system and metabolism.

Earlier, scientists warned about new dangers of lack of sleep. We also learned that half glass of wine a day increases the risk of breast cancer.
