Nighttime fasting may decrease breast cancer risk in women

the ONA take:

According to a recent study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have found that a reduction in the amount of time spent eating and an increase in overnight fasting decreases glucose levels and may lower the risk of breast cancer among women.

In the study, participants reported eating five times per day with an average fasting of 12 hours during the nighttime. Women who reported longer fasting periods also consumed fewer calories during the day, ate fewer calories after 10 p.m, and had a fewer eating episodes.

Results showed that women who had a longer fasting duration overnight had significantly better glycemic control. In addition, researchers found that each 3 hour increase in overnight fasting was associated with a 4% lower postprandial glucose level.

The researchers note that larger studies are needed to confirm that overnight fasting improves glycemic control and reduces breast cancer risk.
