Night shift diet can affect liver rhythms

body clockNight shift workers might are being advised to avoid foods high in iron which may disrupt the working of their livers.

Those on night shifts have higher rates of type 2 diabetes, obesity and cancer because of the disruptions to their body’s circadian clock.

The circadian clock in the brain, regulates sleep and eating but other body tissues also have circadian clocks.

Jet lag contributes to obesity

airplaneJet lag can contribute to obesity by disturbing the body’s daily rhythm.

Like shift work, jet lag interferes with the body’s biological clock or circadian rhythms through the day-night cycle.

This in turn affects the composition of the body’s microbial community leading to obesity and metabolic problems.
