Study Shows That Eating Supper After 10pm Can Increase Risk of Cancer

Having Dinner Before 9 PM Lowers Breast And Prostate Cancer Risk

Avoiding tobacco products is a biggie, as is taking care of your skin when it's in the sun, but have you ever considered your choice of dinner time as a contributing factor to your risk of cancer? According to a study done by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) in Spain, eating your last meal two hours before sleeping or before 9 pm can reduce the risk of prostate and breast cancer.

"Although prior studies have suggested an association, they have been limited in power, particularly for specific fruits and vegetables and aggressive subtypes of breast cancer", said first author Maryam Farvid, research scientist in the Department of Nutrition.

They found that women who ate more than 5.5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day had an 11 percent lower risk of breast cancer than those who ate 2.5 or fewer servings.

These two cancers are reportedly the most common and are also strongly associated with night-shift work, circadian disruption and adjustment of biological rhythms. What we know from experimental studies is that we are conditioned to function in different parts of the day. We - not only humans but all living organisms - have developed throughout time functioning differently in day and night. Researchers at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) made a decision to determine whether meal timing influenced the risk of breast and prostate cancer. They noted down each participant's lifestyle and chronotype - an individual attribute linked to a preference for morning or evening activity.

"The findings highlight the importance of assessing circadian rhythms in studies on diet and cancer", Kogevinas added.

Participants were also asked to complete a Food Frequency Questionnaire to look at their dietary habits and adherence to cancer prevention recommendations.

The research suggests that long-term late night snacking may have the similar effect to night-shift work and circadian disruption.

"Population-based studies have found that people who eat late at night have higher rates of obesity and worse metabolic profiles".
