Long-term research on the effects of lifestyle on the biological clock

Long-term research on the effects of lifestyle on the biological clock
Scientists from the Netherlands and Canada are to investigate whether lifestyle changes can help to restore the 24-hour rhythm of people at a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The Dutch researchers, including Professor Patrick Schrauwen of Maastricht University, have already concluded that people with a predisposition to type 2 diabetes have a disrupted circadian rhythm, or biological cl...
