    NIGHT WORK increases the risk of weight gain according to a recent study.

    WEIGHT GAIN OF 4.8 POUNDS VS 2.9 POUNDS

    Among 286 nurses, ages 21- to 58-years-old, working in hospitals between 1985 and 1990, those working at night gained 4.8 pounds compared to 2.9 pounds for those working days.

    1.9 TIMES AS LIKELY TO GAIN 11 POUNDS; 2.9 TIMES AS LIKELY TO GAIN 15 POUNDS

    A larger percentage of the women working nights also gained 15 pounds or more ??? 15 percent of those working nights versus 6 percent working days.

    The nurses working nights were 1.9 times as likely to gain 11 pounds or more and 2.9 times more likely to gain 15 pounds or more.
