Study finds chronic disruption can cause heart and kidney disease

University Health News today posted an article Chronic Sleep Disruption Can Cause Heart And Kidney Disease. The subject of the article is pretty self-explanatory, based on the title, and it discusses research conducted at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre of the Toronto General Hospital (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).

Dr. Michael Sole, Cardiologist and founding director of the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre and Professor of Medicine and Physiology at the University of Toronto suggests that shiftworkers working on a rotating schedule should try to maintain the same shift for a month at a time to reduce the circadian disruption.
