Eat­ing din­ner early wards off breast cancer

First For Women - - Health -

That’s the word from Span­ish in­ves­ti­ga­tors re­port­ing in the In­ter­na­tional Jour­nal of Cancer. In a six-year study of 3,019 adults (both women and men), sub­jects who reg­u­larly ate din­ner at least two hours be­fore turn­ing in for the night were 20% less likely to de­velop breast cancer than those who typ­i­cally went to bed shortly af­ter din­ner. The au­thors say eat­ing early strength­ens the body’s nat­u­ral cir­ca­dian rhythms, which low­ers the risk of de­vel­op­ing cancer.
