New Study Says That Sleeping With The Lights On May Cause Weight Gain

A new study has found that sleeping with the TV or lights on may cause women to gain weight! The study — which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, analzyzed 43,722 women. The study found that sleeping with an artificial light on at night was “significantly associated with increased risk of weight gain and obesity, especially in women who had a light or a television on in the room while sleeping.” The weight of the women in the study was measured over a six year period and during a follow up 12 years after the study began.  Women who slept with a light on in the room or with a television on had an 11 pound, or more increase in body weight compared to those who did not sleep with any light on at night. Those who slept with a light in the room or a TV also had a 10% or more increase in BMI, and were more likely to be overweight or obese. (Daily News)
