What Does Sleep Have to do with Cancer Risk?

Scientists know that mixing up our day and night cycles through shift work or chronic jet lag rasies the risk of cancer. But why?

Now, a new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) describes an unexpected role for protein involved with our daily “circadian” clocks in influencing cancer growth.

Exercise Performance in Mice Depends on Circadian Rhythms

By Bonnie Ward

The body’s circadian rhythms control a lot more than daily sleep-wake cycles. In fact, these biological mechanisms, often referred to as the circadian clock, exist in nearly every cell in the body and are involved in many important body functions, such as temperature, hunger and hormone release.

Now scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have shown that these rhythms also play a key role in exercise speed and endurance.     READ MORE>>>
