Circadian rhythms are clearly important for staying fit, both in terms of good health and of survival of the fittest.  They fit chemical cycles to the day and night pattern, and this seems to have offered an evolutionary advantage.  But why would that be and what are these essential chemical pathways that encouraged body clocks to evolve?  To find out more, we talk to Akh Reddy from the Institute of Metabolic Science, here at the University of Cambridge.
