Latest ‘Probable’ Carcinogen: The Night Shift

A branch of the World Health Organization is set to add the night shift to a list of “probable” carcinogens, reports AOL News. As it turns out, people working the evening shift have a higher risk for breast, prostate and colon cancer.

One possible issue is melatonin production. Melatonin, a multi-purpose hormone created by the pineal gland in the brain, supports the immune system, cancer-suppressing genes, and acts as an antioxidant. When you sleep during the day, production of melatonin is disrupted.

Disrupted sleep patterns may also be an issue. According to one expert, “Altered sleep patterns and sleep deprivation weaken the immune system… and upset natural rhythms the body uses to maintain healthy cells.”

One thing night-shifters can do is take melatonin supplements, suggests the article. But what about vitamin D? Could lack of sunlight caused by sleeping during the day lower vitamin D production, thus increasing your risk for cancer? If you have no idea what I’m talking about,
check out some of Pound 360’s regular ramblings about D.

Speaking of vitamin D, the NBC Nightly News ran
a feature on the wonder vitamin last night. No new info for regular readers of Pound360, but if you’re not familiar, it’s worth checking out.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
