Thursday, May 5, 2022 (HealthDay News) – Rotating night shifts are linked to a reduced chance of healthy aging among U.S. female nurses, according to a study published online May 4. Clothing network open.
Hong Shi, PhD, and colleagues from the School of Public Health and Management at Wenzhou Medical University in China examined whether rotating night shifts work with healthy aging over 24 years. The analysis included 46,318 participants in the Nurses’ Health Study (ages 46 to 68 in 1988).
Researchers have found that women who have never worked night shifts are significantly less likely to achieve healthy aging with increased night shift work hours (for one to five year night shift work: a consistent odds ratio, 0.96). [95 percent confidence interval, 0.89 to 1.03]; Six to nine years: consolidated dissent ratio, 0.92 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.79 to 1.07]; বছর10 years: adjusted dissent ratio, 0.79 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.69 to 0.91]) The results were the same across age and lifestyle.
“Because a growing proportion of the working population is involved in rotating night shift work, these results further highlight the importance of understanding the relationship between night shift work and human health,” the authors wrote. “Additional research is guaranteed to confirm our findings in male and other ethnic populations.”
