What happens if your circadian rhythms are out of whack?

Scientists discovered an important molecular link between lung tumor growth and disrupted circadian rhythms, according to a new paper co-authored by a University of Rochester Wilmot Cancer Institute investigator and led by the Scripps Research Institute in California.

Circadian rhythms, sometimes called the “biological clock,” is the cellular process that rules sleep-wake cycles. The World Health Organization has proclaimed that disrupted circadian rhythms are a probable carcinogen.

The latest research, published in the high-impact journal Science Advances, describes that when the circadian clock gets off track it implicates a cancer-signature gene known as HSF1 that can trigger lung tumors. Lungs are under tight circadian control and seem to be particularly vulnerable to a disrupted biological clock.

    Do you have a little basket for your new doggy? Was wondering what you like as I’ve not checked them out for my min pin yet.

    • I still have my bike with the basket I rode Gabi on, however, my new guy doesn’t appear to have her calm. He reacts strongly to squirrels and any other scurrying animal. So I fear I won’t be riding with him, at least in the near future. I had a mechanic build me a carrier for my pup and he did a super job. Here is a link that shows the carrier: https://guysandgoodhealth.com/2022/04/01/the-ravages-of-age-2/. Notice he put a carrier on the front wheel and set the basket on it. This takes a lot of pressure off you as a rider. It lowers the center of gravity and makes steering much easier.
