Gezondheidsrisico's door nachtwerk

The Council found strong evidence for a relationship between adverse health effects on the long term and night shift work. Working night shifts for forty years leads to an increase of the risk of diabetes mellitus (type 2) and cardiovascular diseases of 7 to 8%. Earlier a relationship was suggested between night shift work and breast cancer. Based on new data this relationship is unclear.
