Sleep disorders and life-style related disease in shift workers

, : Sleep disorders and life-style related disease in shift workers. Nihon Rinsho. Japanese Journal of Clinical Medicine 72(2): 310-316

A substantial proportion (-27%) of workers in Japan is engaged in shift work. Many epidemiological studies have shown that the consequences of shift work range from transient and reversible insomnia/sleepiness to major deleterious lifestyle-related disease and cancer pathogenesis. The present paper reviews evidence on sleep disorders and lifestyle-related disease in shift workers and the proposed pathophysiological pathways by which sleep restriction and circadian misalignment may lead to lifestyle-related disease and cancer genesis.
