Women Working at Night Shifts May Have Higher Risk of Cancer
A recent study from the Sichuan University in China finds that work at night shifts connected to the increased risk of cancer in women.
For the research, a team of scientists conducted a meta-analysis of 61 studies that in total included 3,909,152 participants from Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America, and more than 114,000 cancer cases.
The researchers discovered that women engaged in long-term night shift work had 41% higher risk of skin cancer, 32% higher risk of breast cancer, and 18% higher risk of gastrointestinal cancer.
Study co-author Xuelei Ma, Ph.D., says: “Our study indicates that night shift work serves as a risk factor for common cancer in women. These results might help establish and implement effective measures to protect female night shifters. Long-term night shift workers should have regular physical examinations and cancer screenings.”
