The light of the mobile phones and screens at night They alter the sleep cycle, which causes an imbalance of the hormones that regulate appetite and weight gain, said Fernando Javier Lavalle González, former president of the Mexican Diabetes Federation.
The expert told Efe that several investigations show that theartificial uz It causes the brain to not recognize patterns of light and darkness.

This, he said, produces changes in the biological clock and causes sleep not to be repaired and people do not restand that, on the contrary, upon waking, they have a feeling of fatigue.
Lavalle González indicated that the human body generates different hormones that help to wake up and when there are an excess of them produces weight gainOne of them is cortisol, known as the stress hormone.
"There are patients who have increased cortisol, such as those suffering from Cushing's syndrome; they are overweight as part of their illness"said Lavalle, a professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the National Autonomous University of Nuevo León (UANL).
Lavalle added that the cell phone use It has grown over the last 18 years and has thus increased its use late into the night.
Lucía Mendoza Viveros, a postdoctoral researcher at the Biomedical Research Institute (IIBm) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), has recently published advances in her biological rhythms in mammals.
In this he indicated that the Obesity It is a disease that not only has to do with diet and sedentary lifestyle, but also with the lack of synchrony between daily activities and cycles of light and dark in the environment.
Mendoza Viveros asserted that there is evidence that people with acute sleep deprivation are affected by glucose and its response to insulin.
This, he says, directly affects metabolism since it does not respond properly. When the imbalances in the dream are maintained for years, the consequences are even more serious.
It is estimated that around the world there are more than 650 million people suffering from Obesity, a chronic disease that has increased in recent years.
