Daylight Saving time Returns Sunday With Possible Health Risks
This weekend we spring forward to Daylight Saving Time. Set all clocks ahead one hour before bedtime Saturday evening.
This means that we will all lose an hour of sleep. According to the centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many people are not getting enough sleep to begin with.
According to WILX-News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, a 2016 study found that the overall rate for stroke was 8 percent higher in the two days after daylight saving time.
Cancer victims were 25 percent more likely to have a stroke during that time, and people older than 65 were 20 percent more likely to have a stroke.
