(CNN) -- Eating late at night could be hurting more than your waistline, but it could put you at a higher risk for some cancers too.

The study shows people who stop eating at least two hours before going to sleep had a 20-percent lower risk of developing breast cancer or prostate cancer.

Researchers say one factor may be that your body needs ample time to process glucose, giving you better blood sugar control.

A scientist says late night meals can also result in obesity and poor metabolic profiles, and that you should eat in coexistence with your body's natural clock.

That scientist says if you do that, it will reduce your risk of breast cancer.

Experts say two contributing factors that reduce your risk of cancer are maintaining a healthy sleep wake cycle and having a consistent dinner schedule.
