Ladies, don’t sleep with night lights on

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

Anew study has now claimed that women who sleep with ar­ti­fi­cial lights on tend to gain weight or de­velop obe­sity, adding yet another cause to why women gain weight. The study is the first to find an as­so­ci­a­tion be­tween any exposure to ar­ti­fi­cial light at night while sleep­ing and weight gain in women. The re­sults, pre­dictably, sug­gested that cut­ting off lights at bed­time could re­duce women’s chances of be­com­ing obese. Lead au­thor Yong-moon (Mark) Park said, “The re­search sug­gests a vi­able pub­lic health strat­egy to re­duce obe­sity in­ci­dence in women.”
