Having to wake up an hour earlier due to Daylight Saving Time is more than just a little annoying. The L.A. Times recently published a story discussing the danger of turning our clocks forward. For instance, on the Monday following "springing forward:"
  • traffic accidents increase by 8.6% and there is a significant increase in the number of fatal accidents,
  • workplace accidents are more common and severe, and
  • more heart attacks occur.
