Washington D.C. [USA], August 17, 2017: Night time munchers, hold on tight! This jaw-dropping finding may encourage you to give up your night time muncher title.
According to researcher Joseph S. Takahashi, people who eat late at night are more vulnerable to sunburn and longer-term effects such as skin aging and skin cancer.
You will be surprized to know that more than sunbathing or sun exposure, it is your irregular eating habits which deeply hamper your skin.
The effects of the disturbance in the biological cycle of the skin due to the irregular eating schedule are demonstrated and verified by O’Donnell Brain Institute and UC Irvine. A study was conducted on mice as they are nocturnal animals. Therefore, their natural eating time is at night. During the study, Takahashi fed the mice during the day time and observed the effects of irregular eating habits on the skin, mentioned ANI report.
The outcome demonstrated an alteration in the XPA(Xeroderma Pigmentosum group-A) cycles. XPA is an enzyme that repairs the UV damaged skin. As a consequence of which, these mice suffered more skin damage when exposed to ultraviolet B(UVB) light as compared to those mice, which were fed at their original eating time. Apart from altered XPA cycles, the study also found that abnormal eating schedules affect the expression of about 10% of the skin’s genes.
It is primarily the irregular eating habits which disturb the biological cycle of the skin. It thus diminishes the daytime potency of an enzyme that provides a protection against the sun’s harmful UV radiation.
Don’t be afraid to go for sun basking on a beach, just regulate your eating schedule so as to attain a strong skin immunity system.
