Participants' lifestyles were assessed, including information about their meal times and sleeping habits. In addition, a control group with more than 2,000 men and women (who did not have cancer) were also taken into account in the study. The findings were published on Tuesday in the International Journal of Cancer.

The lead author of the study mentioned, "Our study concludes that adherence to diurnal eating patterns is associated with a lower risk of cancer".

They also reported the extent to which they followed cancer prevention recommendations such as limiting alcohol intake and avoiding smoking.
