If you have more active at night, whether reading, work or any other reason, you raise some attention to your health. Eating well? Do you sleep enough? These questions were raised by a series of & # 39; researchers reached important conclusions.
People staying late are more at & # 39; risk of suffering cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes people who come early. So concluded study by the University & # 39; Northumbria (UK) to analyze whether it was late night (or early start) influence health.
The reason given by researchers, that their work was published in Advances in Nutrition, is that people with night preference are more at risk of having poor health because they follow patterns & # 39; errati more bad food and consume more healthy foods.

The study indicates that people tend to go to bed later carrying & # 39; bad food health habits, consume more alcohol, candy, drinks with caffeine and fast food than those who start early. In addition, their diets contain less cereals and vegetables and eat less often, but larger meals, which influences the possibility of suffering from chronic disease. B & # 39; contrast, the earliest people to eat more fruits and vegetables daily.
"The – scientific evidence to provide increased awareness in – relationship – kronotype (Habit & # 39; daytime or nighttime), the diet and – health cardiometabolic. B & # 39; In general, studies suggest that cutting kronotopu afternoon is associated with & # 39; lower consumption & # 39; fruits and vegetables and higher consumption & # 39; alcoholic beverages, sugar and kafeinat, as well as increased consumption & # 39; energy from natural food ", explained. scientist who participated in the study, Dr. Leonidas G. Karagounis.
Eat late in the day "is related to & # 39; & # 39 heightened risk; Type 2 diabetes because the circadian rhythm influence the way the body modify glucose"The glucose decreases throughout the day and reaching its lowest point at night. After that, people who eat before going to bed have very high levels when they sleep, leading to the body does not follow his biological process.
It also affects people who work work shifts, especially on revolving changes, by constantly adjust their body clock to meet the working hours. The researchers found that this reduces their sensitivity to insulin and affect their glucose tolerance, which increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes "After kronotype of & # 39; evening It is associated with & # 39; increased risk & # 39; heart disease and type 2 diabetes, can & # 39; due to the behavior of & # 39; food and more poor diet. Our review also found that people who have less control of their diabetes x & # 39; likely to stay late, "said Dr. Suzana Almoosawi, participants in the study.
And x & # 39; occurs in childhood and adolescence?
The study also concluded that the preferences of the people to rise early and go to bed late change in & # 39; various points in the life cycle. The kronotiku of & # 39; in the morning it is more common in boys and can & # 39; appears when the baby has only three weeks. This changed during childhood. More than 90 percent & # 39; those & # 39; two have preference in the morning, but this percentage drops & # 39; 58 percent at the age of & # 39; six move more preference overnight during puberty. This preference for the night continues until the adult reaches 50 years, which is when the next favors.
"It highlighted an important gap in our understanding of & # 39; As our biological clock affects the consumption & # 39; foods in infants, children and elderly. While most babies synchronize their body clock is & # 39; that & # 39; mother, when they reach six years, it is observed that a large proportion begins to show signs of & # 39; & # 39 development; chronotype evening. We do not know whether physiological, schedules & # 39; school or social schedules determine this change, "said Dr. Almoosawi.
He added: "In youth, we find that kronotype overnight Is related to & # 39; & # 39 behavior; more and more erratic food poor diet. It can & # 39; have important implications for health in adulthood, since many eating habits are established in adolescence. "
Finally, the study also found that night night they can accumulate non & # 39; sleep during the week and sleep more during the week to compensate, while those who come early have smaller differences in patterns & # 39; their sleep during the week.
