Some earlier research seemed to suggest that if you spread your calories over a day or if you eat minimally during the day and consume most of your calories at night, you should not be at risk of gaining weight. According to the research, regardless of your eating pattern style, your weight should not fluctuate if you keep the calorie amount stable and it is balanced with your physical activity effort. Some studies in the past on animals have shown that timing of meals, exposure to light and sleep patterns might impact metabolism. According to a new study, people who snack after 8 pm have higher BMIs (body mass indexes) than people who don't snack at night, even if the night-time snackers do not eat "significantly" more calories at night.

"Shift Work at Young Age is Associated with Increased Risk for Multiple Sclerosis”
That’s the title of a report which will be published in the November Annals of Neurology . Researchers analyzed information derived from two epidemiological studies in Sweden, examining environmental and genetic risk factors for multiple sclerosis.
The first study, Epidemiological Investigation of Multiple Sclerosis (EIMS), involved completed questionnaires from 1343 MS patients and 2900 case controls.

These studies did not have any overlap in participants.
As both epidemiological studies included questions regarding demographic, lifestyle factors, and occupational exposures (as well as many other facto...
