Women who are in the best physical form in the morning are less likely to develop breast cancer compared to those who are older in the evening, according to a study in the UK quoted by the Press Association.
Researchers who identified the association between the benefits of morning or evening and the risk of developing breast cancer also discovered the causal link between prolonged sleep and this disease, agerpres.ro writes.

Scientists who compared data with hundreds of thousands of women found that those who are more active in the morning have a 40-48% lower risk of developing breast cancer.
The analysis also showed that women who are sleeping more than the recommended sleep time – seven to eight o'clock in the night – are at risk of diagnosing this condition, which increases by 20% with each additional sleep.

The study considered the differences between genetically predisposed individuals to be "crickets" and "snouts". The first attempt is to wake up early to bed, and the "owls" have an indoor watch that makes them comfortable in the early hours of the morning and in the evening has a high level of energy.
"Based on genetic variants associated with the benefits of morning and evening, sleep duration and insomnia, we tried to find out whether these sleep-related features contributed to the risk of developing breast cancer," said Dr. Rebecca Richmond, senior researcher at Bristol University in the UK.

The expert said that he intends to continue to study the mechanism supporting these results, adding that "habit change can not lead to a risk of breast cancer development; things may be more complicated than that.
"But the discovery of the protective effect of morning preference on breast cancer risk is in line with previous studies that emphasizes that nighttime work and exposure to" night light "are factors of breast cancer risk," said Richmond.

The discovery was presented at the Annual Conference of the National Cancer Institute in Great Britain, held in Glasgow.
The study was conducted on 180,215 participants from the UK Biobank project, which stores data for 500,000 people medical research. The analysis also included scores of 228,951 women who participated in an international genetic study led by the Consortium of the Breast Cancer Association (BCAC).
