Fasting At Night Lowers Risk of Breast Cancer and Diabetes

Individuals should avoid eating snacks at night because this could increase the risk of developing diabetes and breast cancer, according to a new study. Women had a 20% lower risk of developing hyperglycemia for every three hours of fasting at night, which could be a strategy to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. Researchers have discovered that fasting at night is crucial for good health and people who snack in the early hours are putting themselves at risk of disease. — Journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, April 2015
