Daylight Saving Time Could KILL YOU

Daylight Saving Time is trying to kill you.  A study out of Michigan found that there’s a bump in FATAL HEART ATTACKS the Sunday we set the clocks ahead.  The researchers say that even losing that one hour of sleep can mess with a high-risk person’s heart.

According to Reuters

A small new study out of William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan found that there’s a bump in FATAL HEART ATTACKS the Sunday we set the clocks ahead. The author of the study says that it’s possible that even losing that one hour of sleep can mess with a high-risk person’s heart enough to send them over the edge.This isn’t the first study to connect heart attacks and time changes.  A study out of Sweden in 2008 found that heart attack risk went up for the first three days after setting the clocks ahead, and decreased the first few days after setting them back.

 

According to Newsmax

Heart attacks aren’t the only danger. Traffic accidents also increase by 11 percent the week following the onset of DST, and workplace injuries are also more common. In addition, a study published in the journal Sleep and Biological Rhythm found that the week following the onset of DST is especially dangerous for men: More men are more likely to commit suicide following the time switch than at any other time during the year.
