Tumors Might Grow Faster at Night
Work, school, errands, commutes … it makes sense that we are more stressed during the day than when we’re sleeping. And we do, in fact, produce more glucocorticoid (GC) – aka the stress hormone – during our waking hours. Now Weizmann scientists have found that GC also helps suppress cancer growth, meaning that perhaps we should be administering cancer drugs at night, while our bodies aren’t fighting the cancer themselves.
