Rotation of work day and night threatens women with chronic illness

Women who work irregularly  day and night have "high health risks," the most important of which is the risk of diabetes, a recent study suggests.
It is known that the disease can be stimulated by many factors of unhealthy life, such as smoking, fast food, and lack of exercise, but Harvard's new research of 150,000 nurses over 15 years found that a person's schedule could hinder Body flexibility and control of blood sugar levels.

The findings, published in the British Medical Journal, show a greater need for women to understand how the rotation of work between night and day, and irregular schedules, can seriously and devastatingly affect health.
The findings also found that unhealthy lifestyles, such as smoking, overweight, obesity, unhealthy diet and low physical activity, were twice as high (2.3 times) as the risk of type 2 diabetes.
The researchers found that day-to-day work accounted for nearly 17% of the risk of type 2 diabetes. The unhealthy lifestyle accounted for 71% of the chronic disease, and the remaining 11% was linked to the interaction between these two factors.
The study team reported that the study was conducted on females and therefore the results may not be subject to projection on men.
