Late to Rise? You Might Be Early to Die

Researchers gathered the data of almost half a million United Kingdom residents aged between 38 and 73 and followed the participants for more than 6 years. According to a new study, it's diabetes, psychological problems and an increased risk of dying. Zeitzer, who was not involved in this study, said that "the findings for the mortality actually weren't as robust as I would have hoped". In order to evaluate natural circadian rhythm, otherwise known as their chronotype, participants were asked to identify as "definitely a morning person", "more a morning person than evening person", "more an evening than a morning person" or "definitely an evening person".

Out of the 10,500 deaths recorded in the participants, 2,127 had cardiovascular causes.

It's not a lack of sleep - both groups got about the same amount, Knutson and her colleague Malcolm von Schantz, a professor of chronobiology at the University of Surrey, reported in the journal Chronobiology International.

They want bosses to allow night owls to start and finish work later.

"We think the problem is really when the night owl tries to live in a morning-lark world", Knutson said. Teenagers tend to naturally have later chronotypes (body clocks shift throughout life and most teens are night owls), and a growing body of research has shown that shifting school start times later improves school performance.

NIGHT owls are ten per cent more likely than early risers to die young, say scientists.

'And we have to remember that even a small additional risk is multiplied by more than 1.3 billion people who experience this shift every year.

Researchers tracked nearly half a million adults in the United Kingdom over six and a half years, and found that the people who identified as "definite evening types" at the start of the study had a 10% higher chance of all-cause mortality compared with those who said they were "definite morning types", the BBC reports.

'It could be psychological stress, eating at the wrong time for their body, not exercising enough, not sleeping enough, being awake at night by yourself, maybe drug or alcohol use.

The findings add to a growing body of research that suggests that being a night owl could have negative effects on health.

Baby born four years after death of parents
A baby boy has been born in China to a surrogate mother more than four years after the death of his parents in a auto crash. Shen Jie and Liu Xi had been married for two years and chose to go for in vitro fertilization , The Guardian reports .

"If we can recognize these chronotypes are, in part, genetically determined and not just a character flaw, jobs and work hours could have more flexibility for owls".

- Doing things earlier and being less of an evening person as much as you can.

"Youre not doomed", Knutson said.

While pointing to an increased mortality rate for those who stay up late and struggle in the morning, researchers did not dive deep into the reasons for increased early death risks.

Knutson and Von Schantz looked at how people answered the early bird question. This was in comparison with the people identifying as "definite morning types".
