Morning people 'less likely to develop breast cancer'

Women who begin their day early are likely to have a lower of risk breast cancer, than late beginners, suggests a research. What's more, every additional hour slept after the recommended eight-hour sleep was associated with a 20 percent increase in risk.
"Using genetic variants associated with people's preference for morning or evening, sleep duration and insomnia, which had previously been identified by three recent UK Biobank genome-wide association studies, we investigated whether these sleep traits have a causal contribution to the risk of developing breast cancer", she said.
According to the statement, there are about 1.38 million new cases and 458,000 deaths from breast cancer each year, "as breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in the developed and developing countries".
"We would like to do further work to investigate the mechanisms underpinning these results, as the estimates obtained are based on questions related to morning or evening preference rather than actually whether people get up earlier or later in the day", Rebecca Richmond, a research fellow in the Cancer Research UK Integrative Cancer Epidemiology Programme and the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol, explained in a statement. The team presented their findings at the NCRI Cancer Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, while their paper, published on bioRxiv, awaits peer review.
"Larks" tend to go to bed and wake up early, and feel most productive earlier in the morning, while "night owls" feel drowsy in the morning and have the most energy later, making it harder for them to wake up early.
The Biobank samples did not find a link between sleep duration and breast cancer risk but they did confirm that larks have a lower risk of developing the disease.
Florida returns vote to 1.5 million ex-felons In the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump won the state over Hillary Clinton by 112,911 votes, or 1.2 percent of the total. That has led to a system so freaky that John Oliver panned it as "insane" in a recent piece on "Last Week Tonight".
Xi to trumpet China's 'open' markets at trade forum The China International Import Expo (CIIE) is a "trail-blazing" move in the history of international trade development. Organisers of the expo say more than 3,000 foreign companies from 130 countries, including the USA , are present.
"Previous research has looked at the impact of shift work, but this is showing there may be a risk factor for all women".
AXA Mansard, a member of AXA, a global leader in insurance and asset management, said it joined in the observance of the concluded breast cancer awareness. The World Health Organization already says disruption to people's body clocks because of shift work is probably linked to cancer risk.
Being a morning person is partly down to genetics, so this lowered risk does make some sense.
So will a good night's sleep stop me getting cancer?
Because these bits of DNA are set at birth and are not linked to other known causes of cancer, like obesity, it means the researchers are reasonably confident body clocks are involved in cancer.
"Women need to talk to their doctors and the benefits of screenings, self-breast examinations and risk factors".
If it does turn out to be Crystal City and New York City, we hope Amazon has a plan for how to deal with all the traffic. The process certainly hasn't been rushed, as it took Amazon until January of 2018 to release their 20 city shortlist .
