Our immune system is controlled by our "body clock" – an intricate 24-hour system which controls how cells function.
Chemicals banned in the EU were recently granted an exemption for limited use in the UK.
Time changes make many people feel tired, irritable, and unable to sleep.
Frequent disruption of our internal ‘body clock’ is linked to type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Researchers are only beginning to understand the relationship eating time and circadian rhythm have on our body weight.
Removing the “clock” gene makes immune cells more effective at fighting bacteria.
Daylight saving time starts this weekend, and it can often be the beginning of new dramas getting kids to bed. Here’s how to make the transition a little smoother.
Breast milk contains ingredients in concentrations that change over the course of the day. Researchers think milk is chrononutrition, carrying molecular messages to help set a baby’s internal clock.
Researchers find 351 genetic variants associated with a person’s chronotype. Before this study, we knew of only 24.
The old saying ‘the early bird catches the worm’ might be especially fitting when it comes to peak mental and physical performance.
Daylight saving time begins this weekend, which means many of us will get an hour less sleep. But the health effects go beyond sleep – and can last two weeks or more. Here’s what the research says.
Everybody has a personal internal clock in their brain that dictates when we feel like eating, waking and sleeping. But what happens when our life doesn’t match our body clock? And how do we read it?
When you eat is as important as what you eat. The mounting evidence for chrononutrition.
If you need an alarm to get up in the morning, you’re probably not getting enough sleep.
Biological clocks set the pace for nearly all living things, and Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young – awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine – helped us understand how.
Americans Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young share the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for work that explained how our cells keep track of time.
The winners of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine discovered how our internal body clock works.
How to eat yourself brighter.
Children with ADHD are much more likely than other kids to struggle getting to sleep, and staying asleep. Up to 73% of Australian parents report their child with ADHD has problems sleeping.
Stay away from viruses in the early morning – and in winter.
