According to a study by a group of experts of the American Heart Association, this eating late at night can cause cardiovascular disease and diabetes, as it causes a biological rhythm disorder LiveScience site.
Experts have decided to study the relationship between the development of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and the time of eating food. 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 eat a third or more meals after 18 hours have high blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as blood pressure compared to those who ate 18 hours ago. 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 a disorder of the body's biological rhythm due to an abnormal lifestyle, leading to problems in metabolism and an increased risk of chronic illness.
Experts have previously warned that they do not eat directly before bedtime because it is very harmful and aggravates chronic diseases and obesity and encourages cancer.
