A4 working to death graveyard shift soon to be listed As a probable cause of cancer less than 10 percent work nights about 3.2 million people worked Ove might shifts in 2004, Blacks worked More irregular shifts than any other race.. Worker shifts May 2004 percentage of race working a by Maria Cheng a the Assoc ted press London like us rays and diesel exhaust fumes working the graveyard shift will soon be listed As a Quot probably Quot cause of cancer. It is a surprising step validating a concept once considered Wacky. And it is based on research that finds higher rates of breast and prostate cancer among women and men whose work Day starts after dark. Next month the International Agency for research on cancer the cancer of the world health organization will add Ove might shift work As a probable Carcinogen. The higher cancer rates Don t prove working overnight can cause cancer. There May be other factors common among graveyard shift workers that raise their risk for cancer. However scientists suspect that overnight work is dangerous because it disrupts the circadian rhythm the body s biological clock. The hormone melatonin which can suppress tumor development is normally produced at night. If the graveyard shift theory eventually proves Correct millions of people worldwide could be affected. Experts estimate that nearly 20 percent of the working population in developed countries work night shifts. Among the first to spot the night shift cancer connection was Richard Stevens a cancer epidemiologist and professor at the University of Connecticut health Center. In 1987, Stevens published a paper suggesting a link Between Light at night and amp East cancer. Back then he was trying to figure out Why breast cancer incidence suddenly shot up starting in the 1930s in industrialized societies where nighttime work was considered a hallmark of Progress. Most scientists were bewildered by his proposal. But in recent years several studies have found that women working at night Over Many years were indeed More prone to breast cancer. Also animals that have their Light dark schedules switched develop More cancerous tutors and die earlier. Some research also suggests that men working at night May have a higher rate of prostate cancer. Because these studies mostly focused on nurses and airline Crews bigger studies in different populations fire needed to Congimi or disprove the findings. There still Are plenty of sceptics. And to put the risk in perspective the Quot probable Ciuci Nogen Quot tag let Hlls to Means that the link Between overnight work and cancer is merely plausible. Among the Long list of agents that Are listed As Quot known Quot carcinogens Are alcoholic beverages and birth control pills. Such lists say nothing about exposure amount or length of time or How Likely they Are to cause cancer. The american cancer society web site notes that carcinogens do not always cause cancer. The cancer society does t make its own assessments of possible cancer causing agents but relies on analyses by the i arc and a . Agency. Still Many doubters of the night shift link May be won Over by the Marc s analysis to be published in the december Issue of the journal lancet oncology. Quot the indications Are positive Quot said Vincent Cogliano who Heads up the Agency s Carcinogen classifications unit. Quot there was enough of a pattern in people who do shift work to recognize that there s an increase in cancer but we can t Rule out the possibility of other scientists believe having lower melatonin Levels can raise the risk of developing cancer. Light shuts Down melatonin production so people working in artificial Light at night May have lower melatonin Levels. Melatonin can be taken As a supplement but experts Don t recommend it Long term since that could ruin the body s ability to produce it naturally. Sleep deprivation May be another Factor in cancer risk. People who work at night Are not usually Able to completely reverse their Day and night cycles. Quot night shift people tend to be Day shift people who Are ing to stay awake at night Quot said Mark Rea director of the Light research Center at Rensselaer polytechnic Institute in new York who is not connected with the Marc analysis. Not getting enough sleep makes your immune system vulnerable to attack and less Able to fight off potentially cancerous cells. Confusing your body s natural rhythm also can Lead to a breakdown of other essential tasks. Quot timing is very important Quot Rea said. Certain processes such As cell division and Dan repair happen at regular times. Even worse than working an Ove might shift is flipping Between daytime and Ove might work. Quot the problem is re setting your body s clock Quot said Aaron Blair of the United states National cancer Institute who chaired Marc s recent meeting on shift work.
