    Study: Exposure to morning sunlight linked to lower BMI.
    NBC News (4/2, Aleccia) reports on its website that according to a new study from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, people exposed to natural light earlier in the day had a lower BMI than those exposed to light in the afternoon. The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, suggests that bright light in the morning helps synchronize “circadian rhythms that also regulate energy balance, including hormones such as melatonin, which regulate sleep and weight cycles and affect obesity.”

    The Los Angeles Times (4/3, Kaplan) reports in its coverage that the volunteers in the study “tended to be night owls” who went to bed after midnight and rose before 9 am, and 58% reported a BMI of 24 or lower. The researchers found that MLiT (“mean light timing above threshold”), the measurement of light exposure, was the one variable in the study which correlated to BMI. The article notes that “grants from various branches of the National Institutes of Health” funded the study.

    HealthDay (4/3, Gordon) also covers the story.
