Jetlag Kills Mice

Friday, March 09, 2007

Well, in the long term anyway. According to this study, irregular shifts and jetlag kill mice at a pretty high rate.

Money stats are:
-- The young mice were not affected
-- Just 47% of older mice whose clocks went forward each week survived
-- 68% of older mice whose clocks went back each week survived
-- 83% of older mice whose clocks did not change survived
-- Daily corticosterone levels were not affected in any of the older mice
(corticosterone levels are linked to stress, which is said to cause ill health)

So, once again, youth is wasted on the young.
