EARLY DIN­ERS ARE HEALTH­IER

Reader's Digest - - How To Maintain Your Purpose In Life -

A study of more than 4,000 men and women in Spain found that peo­ple who ate their evening meal be­fore 9 p.m. or at least two hours be­fore go­ing to bed had a 20 per­cent lower risk of breast or prostate can­cer than those who ate af­ter 10 p.m. or went to bed soon af­ter eat­ing. These can­cers may be bol­stered by dis­rup­tions to the bi­o­log­i­cal clock, and meal tim­ing im­pacts sleep cy­cles.

More re­search needs to be done to con­firm the link, but it’s worth not­ing that stud­ies have al­ready shown that eat­ing din­ner ear­lier can help you main­tain a healthy weight and sleep bet­ter.
