I was not happy when  I came across this survey because I like to munch on popcorn or some type of snack when I am watching a movie at night. A new study by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health reveals that eating after 9 p.m. can increase a person’s risk of cancer by 25%. Researchers studied hundreds of participants before concluding that cancer is more common in people, who don’t leave more than two hours between eating and sleeping. This is because the body’s metabolism slows down in the evening, but eating makes it speed up again. Disrupting circadian rhythms in these ways can increase the risk of prostate and breast cancer. Professor Manolis Kogevinas says, “If these findings are confirmed, they will have profound implications on recommendations for the timing of the last main meal.”

Would the data of this survey stop you from eating at night?
