Looking At The Side Effects of Daylight Saving Time
You probably found yourself asking, "Is Daylight Saving Time worth it?" Lots of people think we should stop doing it, the pros don't really outweigh the cons.
Here are some weird side effects of Daylight Saving Time:
- You're more likely to have a heart attack. According to a recent study, there are 25% more heart attacks today than an average Monday. Expect to see more car crashes today as well.
- It's the worst day of the year to be sentenced for a crime. Judges will actually impose harsher sentences right after Daylight Savings. Possibly caused by being in a bad mood or just tired from not getting enough sleep.
- It's riskier to do in vitro fertilization right now. A study found women who do it in March are more likely to suffer a miscarriage.
- You're less likely to get robbed. This is the only positive side effect on the list. A 2015 study found there are 7% fewer robberies the day after Daylight Savings and 27% fewer robberies the night after.
