Side Effects Of Daylight Savings Time

Is Daylight Saving Time worth it?  A lot of people think we should stop doing it, because the pros don’t really outweigh the cons.  Here are four weird side effects of Daylight Saving Time :

 

 

1.  You’re more likely to have a heart attack – A recent study found there are 25% more heart attacks today than an average Monday.  And there are also more car crashes.

 

 

2.  It’s the worst day of the year to be sentenced for a crime – A study came out last year that found judges impose harsher sentences right after Daylight Savings.  Possibly because they’re in a bad mood, or just tired from not getting enough sleep.

 

 

3.  It’s riskier to do in vitro fertilization right now – Another recent study found women who do it in March are more likely to suffer a miscarriage.

 

 

4.  You’re less likely to get robbed – Which is the only positive side effect on the list.  A study in 2015 found there are 7% fewer robberies the day after Daylight Savings.
