I've always hated Daylight Savings Time, and now I've got scientific evidence that it's a plague on humanity. Waking up in the pitch dark to change the time on all my clocks is more than an inconvenience. Turns out, it's actually dangerous.
According to an article in the LA Times, hazards ranging from heart attacks to traffic accidents increase dramatically on the Monday following the time change. This "spring forward" nonsense strips us of an hour of much-needed sleep, which increases stress on our bodies. Sleep experts (yes, there are sleep experts) say it can take some people up to 3 weeks to get used to the new time. http://www.latimes.com/health/boostershots/la-heb-daylight-saving-time-health-dangers-20130311,0,2861449.story
So be safe out there because apparently everyone's half asleep.
