Scientists said the serious danger of a late dinner

21 July 2018

So a recent study has shaded lights on our evening meal.

Spanish researchers came to the conclusion that the habit to eat in less than two hours before bedtime may be associated with an increased risk of developing breast cancer and prostate cancer. There is a deep relation between food and cancer and has been investigated very deep.

You already know a number of things that can reduce your chances of getting various types of cancer. Conversely, regularly eating red meat increasesthe risk of certain cancers. If a girl starts smoking in her teenage years, her breast-cancer risk is 50 percent higher for the rest of her life. However, the impact of when food is eaten has been much less studied. The risk of developing breast cancer decreased by 16% and that of developing prostate cancer by 26%. When you think about it, it's all rather unnatural that we humans stare at our Instagram feeds into the wee hours of the morning and host our dinner parties late at night. As controls, they also included 872 males and 1,321 females without cancer.

They analyzed participants' lifestyles like their meal times and sleeping habits.

A new study suggests that gut bacteria influence the intestinal circadian clock to promote a higher intake and retention of fat.

The study was published in the International Journal of Cancer.

Women who eat a high amount of fruits and vegetables each day may have a lower risk of breast cancer, especially of aggressive tumors, than those who eat fewer fruits and vegetables, according to a new study led by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Manolis Kogevinas, a research professor at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health and the lead investigator, who led the study, said: "Our study concludes that adherence to diurnal eating patterns is associated with a lower risk of cancer". "The hypothesis we tested is supported by experimental evidence and stresses the importance of evaluating circadian rhythms in studies on diet and cancer".

"If the findings are confirmed, they will have implications for cancer prevention recommendations that now do not take meal timing into account" said lead author Dr. Manolis Kogevinas, of ISGlobal, in Barcelona.
