A third more cardiovascular events, including heart attacks and strokes, occur in the first month of the year. This is true even in sunny locales such as Los Angeles.

If you feel that your life is too stressful, you are not alone. The American Psychological Association has warned that people are living with more stress than ever before and suffering extreme physical and emotional harm as a result. Stress does not just put you at risk for long-term disease; it can also interfere with your circadian rhythm and leave you feeling exhausted on a daily basis.

The circadian rhythm has a massive impact on human health. With the advent of wellness-influenced buildings, contributing to the health of the circadian rhythm may soon be shaping architecture as well.

Are you getting enough sleep and still suffering from sleepiness and fatigue? If so, you may be suffering from a condition known as circadian-time sickness.

Labor experts estimate that 3.2 percent of the workforce works night shifts and another 2.5 percent work alternating shifts. Even more people work evenings, very early mornings and other odd shifts, totaling about 15 percent of the workforce in total. This means that around six million people are at higher risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. However, these risks appear to affect some people more than others.

Scientists have long tried to figure out exactly how cancer occurs in hopes of finding a cure. Circadian clock genes may be an important piece of this puzzle.

Low back pain is a common issue that most of us, around four in five people, will suffer from at some point in our lives. It is not just uncomfortable but expensive. Low back pain is the most common cause of work-related disability and requires expensive therapies such as spinal surgery. Most people believe that this pain syndrome is caused by overuse and bad ergonomics, but it appears that a totally different issue may be at play here: desynchronization of the circadian rhythm.

Sight is important but it is not the only role of the eye. Research has shown that the eye’s role in circadian rhythm entrainment is greater than we previously believed.

A lot has been studied and written about circadian rhythm. New research suggests that your liver plays an intricate role in maintaining your internal clocks.

Research suggests that an enzyme named glycogen synthase kinase 3 may be an important regulator of your brain’s master clock.

Many people cannot find a cure for their sleep disorder or even an adequate treatment. But what if your sleep disorder is in your genes and can be treated as a genetic disorder?

The Rhythm of Life
Introduction

Chronobiology is a field of biology that studies how our body's natural cycles--mental, physical, and emotional--are affected by solar and lunar rhythms. For example, the circadian rhythm, a 24-hour cycle of physiological processes that happen throughout the human body, is a vital cycle in the study of Chronobiology.

When cycles break down or abnormalities occur in the human body, it’s the study of Chronobiology that could be the solution. Go to chronobiology.com to learn more about this evolving scientific field.
