A study in PLoS Medicine based on data from the Nurses' Health Study showed that women who worked on a rotating night shift for 10 years were at 40% greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes, while those who worked for 20 years or more had a 60% increased risk of having the disease. Working on a rotating night shift was also associated with increased risk of obesity in women, researchers said.
