Humans have daily cycles that when changed cause us not to feel right. Those changes may be caused by jet lag, shift work, illness or just choosing to ignore the normal bedtime. Researchers examined the impact of misaligned behavioral and circadian rhythms in a group of human subjects. Each person experienced the normal 24 hour cycle and 28 hour cycles in an environment free of time cues. The misaligned cycles, compared to with the aligned ones, lowered leptin, and sleep efficiency, and raised glucose, insulin and blood pressure significantly.
