What is the risk of breast cancer to women who work night shifts?

Women who work the night shift in office must read this news. Scientists had claimed in a research study that women who work in front of a computer at night have double the risk of breast cancer. So is it really so… know… 

In a research report in 2007, it was claimed that women working in front of the computer at night are at risk of breast cancer. Therefore, the report cautioned women who worked night shifts that this shift could give them life-threatening illness. Scientists had claimed that women who have been working night shifts for 30 years are twice as likely to get breast cancer.

This research was done by researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2007, and in the results of this research it was said that the risk of cancer increases due to the breakdown of body clock.

The results of this research were once again studied by researchers of the University of Oxford and found that there is no risk of developing breast cancer in women working in long-running night shifts.

The report of the study has also been published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

The subject was studied 10 times, covering 1.4 million women.

In all studies, it has been found that whether a woman is working in a night shift for the first time or for a few weeks or for 20 or 30 years, there is no risk of developing breast cancer due to night shift.
