Here is a presentation by Prof. Satchin Panda of Salk on how maintiaining a good circadian rhythm can have profound benefits to overall health.   This would include health of the immune system which has implications for cancer.


Some simple actions: 

Get morning light - natural sunlight to help regulate circadian rhythms 

Avoid blue and bright light in the evening.    myLUX app might help

Consume caloric foods and drink within a 12 hour window.  Independent research with breast cancer patients demonstrated the effectiveness of over overnight fasting of at least 13 hours

Avoid caloric food or drink within 2 or 3 hours of bedtime

'Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise'

I've always been an early riser and early to bed; but I'm a woman, so I guess thats why I'm not healthy, wealthy or wise.
