When and how often women eat may play a role in breast cancer risk. Those were the findings of a new study published by researchers at the University of California, San Diego Moores Cancer Center. Lead author Catherine Marinac says they found that an increase in overnight fasting reduced a woman’s glucose levels and that may reduce the overall risk of breast cancer.

"There’s a lot of recent literature on various fasting regimens in human health and many of these aren’t backed by rigorous scientific evidence, so this is building on that knowledge base."

Now, Marinac says they’re working on a study looking into how the length of the nighttime fasting may affect cancer outcomes in a population of breast cancer survivors.

"So, we have a cohort of women that were followed longitudinally that had breast cancer at one time point and we’re looking at whether fasting might improve their cancer outcomes, so reduced risk of breast cancer or improved mortality."
