Here is great news for all women who wake up early in the morning.
According to recent findings from University of Bristol, women who enjoy getting up early are at a lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who like staying up late or sleep more than eight hours a night.
Breast cancer rates have drastically increased over the years, and now, one in seven women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives.
Disrupted sleep patterns have been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer for people who work overnights, but this study is one of the few to investigate the impacts of sleep habits on breast cancer risk.
The researchers reviewed and analyzed data from the UK Biobank study and the Breast Cancer Association Consortium.
For night owls and people who tend to sleep more than the usual seven to eight hours nightly, the analysis suggested a slightly increased risk of breast cancer.
