Unhealthy Night Owls?

Unhealthy Night Owls?

A new study has found that if you like staying up late at night, you may be at higher risk of poor health. A six year study was done on people between the ages 38 to 73 and at the end of this period, the researchers found that night owls were 10% more likely to die during that period compared to early risers. The researchers think part of the problem is that the internal body clock becomes misaligned on weekends, when people might stay up later, compared to workdays. Research has linked body-clock disruption to diabetes and hypertension and other heath problems. Although I enjoy late evenings, I wouldn’t consider myself a night owl. And I’m definitely not a morning person.
