The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - YOUR HEALTHY WEEK STARTS HERE -

Want to slash your risk of breast or prostate cancer? Eat din­ner be­fore 9pm or en­joy your evening feast at least two hours be­fore bed. Ac­cord­ing to a study by the Barcelona In­sti­tute for Global Health in Spain, early eaters are 20 per cent less likely to de­velop breast or prostate cancer than those who dine af­ter 10pm or hit the hay not long af­ter din­ner. Al­though sci­en­tists haven’t fig­ured out the ex­act link be­tween cancer and the tim­ing of your meals, they think it might be re­lated to the way sleep af­fects your body’s abil­ity to metabolise food, so it might be time to ditch those late-night Net­flix-in-bed snacks.
