Oh yes! I once heard a physician talk about this many years ago who said that those of us who work the graveyard shift, mostly nurses in attendance at that talk, would never again be "normal!" He told us that working the 3rd shift, or graveyard shift would take 7 years off our lives!
It's horrible for you. I work at a hospital and the nurses say that it can lead to stress, sleep deprivation and diseases in the long run. I have never done studies on this so I am going on word of mouth. All I know is that I worked the graveyard shift for 9 months and I was miserable all the time. You can never get a good nights sleep because your body knows that it's light outside even if it's pitch black in your room. You wake up feeling horrible and you're tired all night. Humans are not nocturnal.
