To study the link between sleep habits and breast cancer, researchers analyzed two data banks with more than 409,000 women. The scientists concluded that early risers had a 40% lower risk of developing breast cancer compared to night owls.

Rebecca Richmond, a research fellow in the Cancer Research U.K. Integrative Cancer Epidemiology Program at the University of Bristol, says: “We would like to do further work to investigate the mechanisms underpinning these results, as the estimates obtained are based on questions related to morning or evening preference, rather than actually whether people get up earlier or later in the day.”
