https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envint.2019.105184 Abstract Exposure to light at inappropriate times in relation to the solar cycle can disturb circadian endocrine and metabolic rhythms. Previous studies have suggested an association between light exposure at night (LAN) and obesity, an important risk factor of atherosclerosis, although it remains unclear whether LAN associates with progression of atherosclerosis. To evaluate the...

Published Online:27 Feb 2019 https://doi.org/10.1096/fj.201801889R Abstract Working atypical schedules leads to temporal misalignments between a worker’s rest-activity cycle and their endogenous circadian system. Several studies have reported disturbed centrally controlled rhythms, but little is known on shift workers’ peripheral clocks. Here, we assessed central clock markers, urinary 6-sulfatoxymelatonin and salivary cortisol, and clock gene expression in...

Nutrients. 2018 Aug 11;10(8). pii: E1069. doi: 10.3390/nu10081069. Abstract Reduced sunlight exposure has been associated with an increased incidence of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The effect of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) on the faecal microbiome and susceptibility to colitis has not been explored. C57Bl/6 female mice were fed three different vitamin D-containing diets for 24...

Abstract Transl Psychiatry. 2017 Jan; 7(1): e1017. Published online 2017 Jan 31. doi: 10.1038/tp.2016.262 Temporal organization of physiology is critical for human health. In the past, humans experienced predictable periods of daily light and dark driven by the solar day, which allowed for entrainment of intrinsic circadian rhythms to the environmental light–dark cycles. Since the adoption...
