Hazards of Daylight Saving Time
Published 12:15 pm Wednesday, November 9, 2022
It is a medical fact that switching from Daylight Saving Time (DST) back to standard time is a health hazard to homo sapiens.
We are hardwired to our circadian rhythms, which are tied to the natural shortening and lengthening of the days and nights as we move through the year.
More heart attacks and accidents occur during the change back and forth than at other times of the year as well. Further, why is it acceptable to have children standing at the bus stop in pitch blackness at 7:30 in the morning? None of this makes any sense and I am hoping that Congress will end this ridiculous situation once and for all.
