10 Ways Circadian Rhythms Affect Your Health

  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...

New Research into Links Between Circadian Rhythms and Cancer

Virginia Tech Molecular Biologist Carla Finkielstein's new research confirms her earlier findings that, this is why night shift workers develop cancer at a higher rate. The bright light they’re exposed to at night confuses cancer suppressing molecules and cancer...

Circadian Rhythms, Epigenetics and Disease

 Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression (active versus inactive genes) that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence — a change in phenotype without a change in genotype — which in turn affects how cells read the genes.  Little...

New Role for the Brain’s Support Cells in Controlling Circadian Rhythms

  Astrocytes, ‘caretaker’ cells that surround and support neurons in the brain, play a much more important role in circadian rhythms, the body’s 24-hour internal clock, than previously understood. The Medical Research Council funded study found that these star-shaped...

The Role of the Body Clock in Treatment of Asthma and COPD

  Asthma exhibits a marked time of day variation in symptoms, airway physiology, and airway inflammation. This is also seen in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but to a lesser extent. Our understanding of how physiological daily rhythms are regulated by...

Study Examines Disruption of Circadian Rhythm as Risk Factor for Diseases

  Circadian rhythms are guided by internal clocks in cells that enable organisms to adapt to night and day cycles. Disruption of this cycle can lead to health problems in people, so scientists study cell behavior to see how the interrupted clock can cause diseases—an...

Spinal Cord Injury Linked to Disruption of Circadian Rhythm

  A new study by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin suggests such injuries could throw off the internal clock of the entire body’s daily activities, from hormones to sleep-wake schedules. The spinal cord helps transfer information between the body and...
