Shift work ages your brain

In a groundbreaking research it has been proved that shift work dulls our mind. Working antisocial hours can prematurely age the brain and dull intellectual ability, scientists warn. Their study,in the journal Occupational and EnvironmentalMedicine, suggested a decade of shifts aged the brain by more than six years.

This finding is instrumental in the study of dementia as the people with dementia have the same problem of disrupted sleep .

The good news is that people recovered after they stopped working in antisocial hours but the recovery took almost 5 years.
