RESEARCH VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Shift work is essential for many industries and the overall UK economy. Recent research has suggested that night work can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Night workers are also more likely to make less healthy food choices during their shift which may contribute to this risk. The shift-eat study is investigating if changing dietary choices during a night shift can help improve the health of night workers.

- Shift workers based in London
- Must have a work rota that includes blocks of 3 or more consecutive night shifts
