I recently had a discussion with some of my co-workers regarding working nights and overall inpact on health. a few years back, I recall hearing that nurses who work on the night shift have a greater incidence of cancer? Something to do with disruption of melatonin production or something like this??
I am curious what others' opinions are; whether you think that working nights (particularly for many years) negatively affects personal health.
I work exclusively on nights and prefer it over dayshift per my personal preference, but I'm concerned that my health may suffer in the long run. I don't think I eat as well (veggies and such) during the night. I don't eat that much at work and when I do, it's usually fruit or cereal.
Love to hear your thoughts!
