'Waking up earlier can help overweight people avoid diabetes and heart disease'
Waking up early can help overweight people avoid heart disease and diabetes, according to researchers from the University Federico II in Naples, Italy.
Scientists studied 172 obese people and their sleeping habits and concluded that people who stayed up late were six times more likely to develop type two diabetes than those who went to bed earlier.
People who woke later than average were more likely to have heart disease.
