10 Ways Circadian Rhythms Affect Your Health

Mar 26, 2019

 

Israeli researchers have uncovered fascinating facts about how the body clock impacts metabolism, mood, microbiome and much more.

Disturbances to the circadian rhythm, or to the genes that produce the rhythm, can cause problems from low productivity and insomnia to depression and diabetes. Some of the most common disturbances are night-shift work, artificial light and travel across time zones.

At least 10 Israeli research groups focus on chronobiology, the study of biological rhythms. “Compared to Israel’s size we have quite a lot of very diverse research on circadian rhythms,” Bloch tells ISRAEL21c.

Here are some significant Israeli contributions to understanding how circadian rhythm affects the wellbeing of people, animals and even plants and microbes.
