2 Your Health: Benefits of Sunshine in the Workplace; Ramen Noodle Health Risks

Updated:

Sunshine in the workplace is essential to good health, according to a study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.

Researchers looked at 49 people--27 of them in windowless offices, and 22 people who worked near windows.

They found the workers close to a window exercised more and slept, on average, 46 minutes more a night than those who worked without windows.

Researchers also say exposure to daylight can help increase productivity.

Scientists say the cause may be the fact that most instant noodle meals are packaged in styrofoam, which contains bisphenol A(BPA), a chemical that's been linked to certain health problems.
