The Influence of Circadian-Related Genes, Sleep, and Seasonality on Dietary Intake and Cardiometabolic Traits.

Dashti, Hassan.

Abstract: Background: The circadian clock governs numerous aspects of human physiology including sleep/wake cycle, eating behavior, and metabolism. This autonomous system is entrainable by external cues including light exposure and dietary intake. Circadian-related genetic polymorphisms and short sleep duration have been associated with increased risk for cardiometabolic diseases. Objectives: To f... read more
