“Graveyard Secret” Gives You Cancer?
Certain risk factors for cancer are well-known — like smoking and obesity.
But there’s a hidden cancer risk factor faced by millions of people…
Most of them have NO IDEA they’re increasing their risk of cancer with each passing day.
It all has to do with a certain “graveyard secret.”
I’ll tell you who is at risk — and how you can stay safe.
It’s been called the graveyard shift — that dreaded work shift that requires people to work through the night.
Unfortunately, the term graveyard shift hits a little too close to home… since working these hours are notorious for increasing the risk of depression, mood disorders, heart attacks, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
Scientists have known for years that night shift increases the risk of cancer because it disrupts your circadian rhythm.
But what researchers haven’t known is the exact mechanism in the body that seems to flip the “on” switch on cancer.
Well, now they know.
Researchers from Washington State University Health Sciences Spokane found that night-shift work disrupts the 24-hour rhythms in the activity of cancer-related genes.
It seems that the study participants who represented night shift workers had white blood cells that were more vulnerable to DNA damage, and that their DNA repair mechanisms were faulty.
This can be a major contributor to cancer.
Everyone experiences DNA damage all day, every day.
The difference in whether that damage turns into cancer or not is determined by how your body deals with the damage.
If genes that repair DNA damage are faulty, damaged DNA accumulate, the DNA becomes unstable, and you’re on the path to cancer.
This study highlights why circadian disruption is so dangerous for your health—even if you’ve never worked the night shift.
It also highlights why you need to take steps to fix your circadian rhythm starting TODAY.
The two biggest ways to accomplish that are:
- Get direct sunlight in your eyes as the sun comes up.
- Avoid exposure to blue light at night.
