According to a study by a group of American Heart Association experts that eating late at night can cause cardiovascular disease and diabetes because it causes a disorder of body biological rhythm LiveScience website.
Experts have decided to examine the relationship between disease development, such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and eating time. They rely on the results of medical examinations of more than 12.7 thousand people from Latin America aged 18 to 76 years.
The researchers found that people who ate one third or more of the meals after 18 hours had high blood sugar and insulin levels as well as blood pressure compared to those who ate meals before 6 pm. It was found that those who ate late meals increased the risk of diabetes by 19% and high blood pressure by 23% compared to others.
According to senior researcher Noor Makarem, this phenomenon can be explained as a result of interrupting the body's biological rhythm due to an abnormal lifestyle, which leads to problems in metabolism and an increased risk of chronic disease.
Experts have previously warned that they do not eat directly before bedtime because it is very harmful and aggravates chronic diseases and obesity and promotes cancer.
