New research suggests women who tend to be "night owls" are at greater risk for breast cancer.

The data from the BCAC group of participants showed that women who were morning types, also known as "larks", had a 40 per cent reduced risk of breast cancer compared with those who were evening types, or "owls".

The scientists, led by the University of Bristol, also showed women who slept longer than the recommended seven to eight hours a night increased their chances of a diagnosis by 20 per cent for each extra hour spent asleep.

Dr Richmond added: "We would like to use genetic data from large populations to further understand how disrupting the body's natural body clock can contribute to breast cancer risk".

In a final note to wrap up the series of activities, Hospital Manager, Mrs. Wilhelmina Banful said Medifem embarked on the activities as part of efforts to raise awareness on breast cancer which is killing many people especially women in Ghana and urged the general public to go for regular screening.

Cliona Kirwan, consultant breast surgeon and researcher at the University of Manchester, said: "The use of Mendelian randomisation in this study enables the researchers to examine the causal effect on breast cancer of different sleep patterns".

US Immigration Officials Move to Deny Asylum at Border 8 November 2018
The new rule comes as a so-called caravan of migrants from Central America travels north by foot through Mexico to the USA border. In 2018, border patrols have registered more than 400,000 illegal border crossers, homeland security said.

As reported by Sarah Knapton from the Telegraph, the research was funded by Cancer Research UK and the Medical Research Council and presented at the NCRI Cancer Conference in Glasgow on 5 November.

Richmond's team also analyzed genetic variants linked to whether someone is a morning or night personin more than 220,000 women to find out if these could help provide a causal link to breast cancer.

Researchers looked at 341 pieces of DNA and used them for an experiment involving over 400,000 women.

"We know that sleep is important generally for health", said Richmond. Around 4% of USA cancer deaths were linked to drinking alcohol and the Breast Cancer Now charity warns that any alcohol intake increases the risk of breast cancer. According to Cancer Research UK, around a quarter of cases might be preventable. Informative and interactive educational sessions attract over 1,500 delegates each year and create the ideal setting to establish new collaborations with key stakeholders in cancer research.

The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) is a UK-wide partnership of cancer research funders, established in 2001.

The Medifem Multi-Specialist Hospital & Fertility Centre has rounded up a series of activities put together to mark Breast Cancer Awareness campaign in October.
