If you thought that your meal timings are not important, think again. According to a new study, having irregular meal timing can disrupt the body clock and increase the risk of heart diseases.
The study which was published in the Journal of Cell noted that eating time is important when it comes to your heart. Not only the meal timings, our daily routines which includes sleep and exercise also had an impact on this.
“We already know that modern society poses many challenges to our health and well-being – things that are viewed as commonplace, such as shift-work, sleep deprivation, and jet lag, disrupt our body clock. It is now becoming clear that circadian disruption is increasing the incidence and severity of many diseases, including cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes.” The authors noted.
