Study: People working in shifts are prone to type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is more common to people who work in shifts, according to a large international study, quoted by the BBC.
Its results, published in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine, showed that men and those working in shifts are more prone to this form of diabetes.

It is believed that the interruption of the biological clock affects weight gain, hormones and sleep - what should increase the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The disease can lead to blindness, can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, can damage nerves and blood vessels - dramatically increasing the risk of a leg amputation.

Studies in the laboratory have shown that getting people to sleep at the wrong time of day leads to the early stages of type 2 diabetes within a few weeks. The new study, which analyzed data from 226,652 people, has strengthened the link between biological clock disruption and the development of type 2 mellitus diabetes.

The research, conducted by scientists at Huazhong University of Science and Technology of China, showed that people working in shifts are 9% more prone to type 2 diabetes, and men 35% more likely.

Also, for those who change daily shifts with night shifts, the risk increases by 42%, reported Agerpres.

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
