UK study covering 100,000 women finds ‘no overall link’ between cancer and night work

Night shift work does not increase the risk of breast cancer, finds a UK study covering analysis of 102,869 women over 10 years.

The Breast Cancer Now Generations study is the latest to examine the supposed link presented by experts for decades.

In 2007, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded that shift work disrupting the body’s sleep-wake cycle was “probably carcinogenic”. However, the agency is due to review its findings this summer.
