Science Shows How Daylight Saving Time Affects Your Health

I literally can't think of anyone who enjoys Daylight Saving Time.

Remembering to change all your clocks, scared to death if you missed one and having to adjust to the loss of sleep when you're like me and have little to none anyways is a B.

But now science has vindicated my distaste, because it turns out DST is not only inconvenient it's unhealthy!

Studies say heart attacks jump 24 percent on the Monday following the switch, as well as workplace injuries, which rise 5.7 percent.

One study found that the change could affect fertility, increasing the chances of having a miscarriage for weeks after the clock change.

Same goes for fatal car accidents, which are up for six days after springing forward.
