Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Simone) – Fasting more than 13 hours at night decreases breast cancer recurrence.  From 1995 to 2007, researchers studied 2,413 non-diabetic women with early stage breast cancer (ages 27-70 at diagnosis) who self-reported their average nightly fasting time (self-reporting may not be completely accurate) [JAMA Oncol. Published online March 31, 2016. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2016.0164)].
Fasting less than 13 hours per night was associated with an increase risk of breast cancer recurrence compared with fasting 13 or more hours per night
Nightly fasting less than 13 hours was not associated with a statistically significant higher risk of breast cancer mortality or all-cause mortality.  
Each 2-hour increase in the nightly fasting duration improves glucoregulation that significantly lowered hemoglobin A1c levels (measurement of sugar levels over many weeks) and a longer duration of nighttime sleep.
Fasting longer and more sleep decreases breast cancer recurrence.
