Late nights link to cancer study

17th December 2007

A link between staying up late and sleeping with the light on is to be examined by the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution.

The commission will look at the impact of artificial light on health within a short study of its effects on the environment to be launched early next year. It is the latest study to make the link between exposure to light at night and the disease. Studies have already shown cancer is 60% more common among night-shift workers, with a similar rise among women who stay up late.
