Are You at Risk of Diabetes & Obesity? Less Sleep, Disrupted Internal 24-Hour Clock, Major Factors Sighted

Yet ANOTHER study confirms what most health conscious people already know intuitively:
Too little QUALITY sleep or ABNORMAL sleep patterns will raise havoc with primary body and mind performance.

A study by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital reinforces the finding that too little sleep or sleep patterns that are inconsistent with our body’s ‘internal biological clock’ may lead to increased risk of diabetes and obesity.

This finding has been seen in short-term lab studies and when observing human subjects via epidemiological studies. However, unlike epidemiological studies, this new study provides support by examining humans in a controlled lab environment over a prolonged period, and altering the timing of sleep, mimicking shift work or recurrent jet lag.   The study was electronically published on April 11, 2012 in Science Translational Medicine.
