Long working hours & D
« on: July 04, 2018, 01:29:02 PM »
As per this study, long working hours increases risk of diabetes in women. Could it be snacking associated with the long working hours, or a dependence on packaged food due to lack of time to cook.  ~tnk~

I hate studies like this that try to come to a conclusion without taking into account all of the things involved.  As we know  "Correlation does not imply causation." It may be a reason for a better, well controlled study but to come to a conclusion is not warranted.  You are right SKB, the cause could well be what they are eating because of the longer hours but this study will not answer that question.
