Study finds timing of meals effects body rhythms and metabolic health

Study finds timing of meals effects body rhythms and metabolic health
Nearly every cell in the body has its own 24-hour clock, and new research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania shows the way those clocks interact with each other plays a critical role in the health of a person's metabolism. It's widely reported that shift workers suffer from high rates of obesity and diabetes when their internal clocks do not coordinate with each other, as well as due to irregular eating times. However, little is known about the interaction between internal clocks and eating schedules, and specifically, the impact on overall health.
