    Shift work’s effect on life expectancy is a complicated topic that is impacted by more than simply how many years it may reduce life. Working shifts, especially at night, throws off circadian rhythms, which may impair general health and cause sleep disorders. Research indicates that extended exposure to shift work may raise the chance of developing a number of illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, and several types of cancer.

    Although the precise number of years that shift work may shorten a person’s life is difficult to measure, evidence suggests that shift employment is associated with a lower life expectancy, albeit individual susceptibility varies. According to several studies, life expectancy may be reduced by a few months or years for every year spent working shifts; however, this is mostly dependent on personal health, lifestyle choices, and job-specific circumstances.

    Armodafinil-containing drug Waklert 150mg is sometimes used to treat shift work-related sleep disturbances. Its potential to lessen the long-term health effects of shift work on life expectancy is still being investigated by researchers and clinicians.
