Spring Forward’s Dire Health Consequences: Strokes, Heart Attacks, Headaches
When people's circadian rhythm are upset -- as will happen this weekend when most Americans turn their clocks an hour forward for daylight saving time -- their health is put at risk.
The San Diego Union-Tribune:
'Springing Forward' May Bring Crashes, Strokes
"Spring forward" works as a mnemonic and a public-relations push for daylight saving time, but it’s just another term for "losing an hour of sleep." At 2 a.m. Sunday, most of the country will set clocks forward one hour. For San Diegans, that means that the sun will rise at 6:59 a.m. on Monday, when the day before it rose a few minutes after six.
