These days women have been throwing down the gauntlets to men. With the pursuit of making their own image in the society they often work in the night shifts. However, a recent study conducted in France has revealed that night shifts are not at all good for women's health.
There are a number of health complications which can be experienced by women who are in the habit of working in the night shifts. During the study, it was found that women who work in the shifts have considerable chances of being affected by breast cancer.
There are many scientific reasons which explain as to why night shifts can trigger breast cancer among women. It has been informed that exposure to light in the night causes elimination of nocturnal melatonin surge and its anti-carcinogenic effects. This further affects the biological functioning of the body and hormones.
Besides, sleep defects are also experienced by those working in the night shifts. Sleeplessness or disturbed sleeping pattern can make the body weak. It is hoped that women would take a serious note of the findings of the study. It has come to light that about 3,000 women took part in the study.
