Reduce Your Cancer Risk With an Earlier Dinner

Eating earlier in the evening could be beneficial to your health.

Eating dinner too close to bedtime can increase your risk of cancer. New research has shown that eating earlier can assist with reducing the risk of cancer -- specifically prostate and breast cancers. The study found that "People who ate their evening meal before 9:00 p.m. or at least 2 hours before going to bed had around 20 percent less risk of breast or prostate cancer than those who ate after 10:00 p.m. or went to bed soon after eating."  

While more research should be done on this due to the small sample size of the study, the findings seem to be promising. Other research has shown that eating fresh vegetables and not eating red meat helps decrease cancer risk as well. It seems clear that what you put in your body and when has an impact on your overall health. Remember to eat healthy, cancer-fighting, foods as much as you can.
