Daylight Savings Time Bad for Our Health

Written by on March 8, 2019

This Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m., we’ll experience our twice-yearly interruption in sleep habits. We call it, Daylight Savings Time.

But some researchers say that the change in our biological clocks affects our health. Every time we “spring forward,” studies have shown that stroke and heart attack risks increase.

Nate Watson, professor of neurology at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, says that’s why he believes we should stay on Standard Time year-round.

For the past few years, Powell Representative Dan Laursen has proposed a bill to end the time change in the Wyoming legislature – the measure was narrowly defeated this year.
